NYC Slip & Fall
Legally, individuals are responsible to maintain their land, business, building or other property, in a reasonably harmless condition. If a slip and fall incident is caused by the negligence of a property owner, you desire to obtain the assistance of a NYC Slip and Fall Lawyer from Stephen Bilkis and Associates to help determine and obtain compensation or reimbursement for incurred expenses, medical -related bills, lost earnings and injury.
These injuries can occur because of issues such as puddles of water, grease build-up, snow, ice or other slippery or slick substances on an area that is walked upon, along with other unobserved possible risks on the ground or floor such gaps, cracks or an unleveled flooring.
If negligence or irresponsibility of a land or business owner caused you or a family member to suffer an injury, they need the help of knowledgeable legal counsel. Our legal team can help pursue damages associated with lost work time and benefits, physician bills and expenses, physical impairment or disability, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and mental anguish.
While this type of injury can commonly occur at a store, mall, restaurant, or home, it can also occur at company or place of work. Should an accident and injury take place at a work place like a construction location or site, our skilled legal team may need to file an additional construction accident injury claim or perhaps a workers compensation injury claim.
When the unpredicted trip and fall was caused by a dangerous property condition, one of our NYC Personal Injury Lawyers can hold the party legally responsible, accountable for your injury, which is called Premises Liability.
At times an injury obtained from these incidents can cause permanent bodily injuries or cause a wrongful death of a family member. If you or a family member accidently falls and hits your head, the head injury may require numerous stitches or it may cause a severe concussion or maybe a brain injury. A NYC Personal Injury Attorney also helps those injured by other types of accidents. Our breadth of knowledge with multiple types of injury cases will be beneficial in a successful case for damage recovery. This injury knowledge and experience varies from accidents like a construction accident or trip and fall, to a workplace accident or motorcycle accident, to an incidence of medical malpractice or a dog bite.
If you or your family member was on public property such as a sidewalk or road when the accident occurred, the accountable entity, maybe a local government, state or city, this is called Municipal Liability.
On your behalf, our legal team may provide evidence that proves that the owner or occupant of the property did not perform appropriate property maintenance or will show that the owner of the property contributed to the dangerous condition or was alert to the dangerous condition (or as a minimum, should have been alert) but failed in cautioning you.
There are many factors to consider including the property conditions involving your claim. For example, how long the property condition existed and if further citizens were also injured because of the property condition.
