Proven Personal Injury Attorneys for Your Slip and Fall Case

New York slip-and-fall cases can be difficult to prove and even harder to win. In a premises liability lawsuit, the plaintiff must not only prove that the owner or occupant of the premises is liable for it, but also that they were responsible for the dangerous condition. Due to the complexity of New York premises liability cases, injured individuals require the assistance of an attorney who is well-versed in this area of law and has experience navigating slip and fall claims.

In handling premises liability cases, our lawyers have had a successful track record that includes*:

  • $5.5 million for a worker injured in an elevator accident
  • $3.1 million result for a woman who was injured when she slipped on a hotel floor
  • $1.95 million settlement for a woman that suffered neck and back injuries after falling down building stairs
  • $1.65 million for the death of a tenant in an apartment fire
  • $1.5 million for a Bronx tenant who tripped over a stair in his apartment building
  • $1.45 million for a Brooklyn tenant who suffered neck injuries after a ceiling collapse

To ensure our client's have the strongest case possible, our New York premises liability attorneys work with accident reconstructionists, photographers and other professionals to determine how the accident developed and liability for the resulting injuries. However, because evidence in slip and fall cases can disappear quickly, those who have been injured on another's property are advised to contact us in a timely fashion to allow our New York premises liability attorneys and team of professionals the opportunity to successfully investigate your accident.
