Not every injury caused by falling debris or slippery floors entitles the victim to compensation. In New York State, in a “slip and fall” accident, the Plaintiff’s lawyer must prove that the property owner or manager knew or should have known about the danger. If we are able to start our investigation shortly after the accident, we are more likely to obtain photos of the broken steps or icy sidewalk, find witness(es) who will testify to the landlord knowledge of the conditions or get documents (maintenance records).

Premises liability claims our firm is prepared to handle involve:

  • Injuries suffered in a store
  • Construction accidents, i.e. falls
  • Injuries incurred when entering or exiting elevators which are not     properly leveled
  • Walking into closed, unmarked glass doors
  • Escalator injuries
  • Swimming pool drowning
  • Broken or uneven sidewalks, stairs, or curb-cuts
  • Icy walkways, slippery store aisles
  • Child injuries at school
