This is not legal advice.
Since every case is unique, consider working with a lawyer to get advice on your specific situation

  • What Should I Do Immediately after a Slip and Fall Accident?

    Prioritize your safety and health immediately following the accident. Call 9-1-1 and get medical help. If possible, photograph the accident scene and your injuries. Report the incident to the building manager or owner. Speak to a lawyer

  • How Do I Prove Negligence in a Slip and Fall Case?

    First, it is critical to understand that attempting to represent yourself and prove negligence on your own is not recommended and can result in unfavorable legal outcomes. In a personal injury case, a lawyer will gather evidence, conduct an investigation, build a strong case, and demonstrate that any and all liable parties contributed to the hazardous conditions that caused your accident and injuries.

  • What Types of Damages Can I Recover?

    Generally, personal injury victims are eligible to receive damages for the injuries and personal damages they incurred due to an accident, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Contact us if you have questions about liability and compensation

  • How Long Do I Have to File a Slip and Fall Lawsuit in New York?

    In New York, the statute of limitations allows many accident victims three years to file a lawsuit. However, if a government entity is involved, this timeframe can be reduced to several weeks. It is critical that you consult with a legal professional who can properly advise you on this matter, as waiting too long could prevent you from seeking compensation later on

  • How Can a New York Slip and Fall Lawyer Help Me?

    Working with a personal injury law attorney can provide you with peace of mind by ensuring that your case is handled professionally, from serving papers to involved parties to establishing fault, building your case, representing you in court, and fighting to ensure you receive fair compensation for your injuries and damages
