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?

    First and foremost, seek immediate medical attention. Don’t wait to be evaluated because some of the most serious injuries, such as internal bleeding, may not be apparent right away. If possible, take photos of the scene and get the contact information of anyone who witnessed your accident. Report the incident to the property owner or manager.
    Ask a family member or friend for assistance if you cannot complete these things alone. Also, contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

  • Who Can Be Held Liable for a Slip and Fall Accident?

    Determining liability involves evaluating the case’s details and evidence. Every case is unique, and liability will be determined by who was responsible for the safety of those on the premises. However, the most likely parties are property owners, businesses, or municipalities. Contact a lawyer if you believe someone was at fault for your accident.

  • What Evidence Is Important to Collect in a Slip-And-Fall Case?

    Collecting evidence right after the accident is essential. Take photographs of the scene, as property owners often quickly clean up or repair hazards. If witnesses are present, get their contact information. Keep detailed medical records and any incident reports. This kind of documentation helps establish the circumstances of your accident and supports your claim.

  • Can I Still Seek Compensation if I Was Partially at Fault for My Accident?

    Yes, under New York’s comparative negligence laws, you can seek compensation even if you were partially at fault for your accident. However, your compensation may be reduced based on your percentage of fault. Working with an experienced lawyer can help ensure that you receive fair compensation for your injuries.
