If you slipped and fell on someone else’s property in the Bronx and got hurt, give us a call. You might win compensation if the property owner didn’t prevent, fix, or warn you about a hazard on the property. Slip and fall laws are complicated, though. Talk with our experienced slip and fall attorneys before pursuing a claim.
Slip and fall claims aren’t easy. You can’t sue a property owner for every tumble you take. To win compensation for a trip and fall or slip and fall accident, you need proof the owner or manager was negligent, and you suffered an injury, like a broken arm or concussion.
By hiring a lawyer, you have someone to explain the law, your rights, and your legal options. We’ll investigate the accident and gather evidence. Whether it’s business records, witness statements, or photos, this evidence is how we build your case.
We’re also experienced negotiators; our job is to fight for you to receive maximum compensation based on the circumstances. Take a look at our case results. We can’t promise a million or multimillion-dollar settlement, but we can promise to fight for every penny your case is worth.
Let us guide you through the legal process. After our investigation, we’ll know who’s responsible and have proof of your injuries. We’ll usually demand compensation under an insurance policy. Property owners and managers should have insurance to cover bodily injuries.
Most people resolve their slip and fall cases through an insurance settlement. But that isn’t always possible. We’ll tell you when it’s in your best interests to file a lawsuit. We might want to go to court to investigate further. We can demand information and documents through the discovery process. Going to court also might be your best choice if the property owner didn’t have insurance or the policy limit was less than the value of your case.
We’ve tackled cases involving:
During an in-depth investigation, we’ll figure out what caused your fall. We’ll also look into why the hazard was there and who was responsible for it.
A slip and fall or trip and fall can happen anywhere, including:
We’ll research the exact location of the fall to find out who owned and managed the property. This is an essential step in your case. You need to know who to file a claim against. Fighting the wrong person or business wastes your time and resources.
If you were in a public location, your claim might be against a government entity. In that situation, the claim process is vastly different than if you were hurt on private property. In New York City, you have 90 days to file a claim of notice against a government agency.
Some falls cause minor injuries, like scrapes and bruises. We’re most concerned with the slip and falls that lead to severe injuries, such as:
Call us right away if you were hurt in a slip and fall, and we’ll get started on your case. We know it’s frustrating to face medical bills for an unexpected accident. Let us help you recover compensation to pay those bills and more.
Slip and falls are part of an area of law known as premises liability. Under New York premises liability law, property owners must take reasonable steps to keep their spaces safe. This is called a duty of care and can include inspecting the property, making repairs, or warning people about possible hazards.
If the person or business in charge of the property doesn’t make the property reasonably safe for others, they could be responsible for injuries.
You might assume the property owner is in charge, but that isn’t always the case. There might be a property manager or tenant responsible for the property. Our Bronx premises liability lawyers always figure out who was responsible for maintaining the area and keeping you safe.
During your claim, you have to prove several facts:
Our slip and fall attorneys will fight for you to get compensation for your:
Everyone falls sometimes. We pick ourselves back up, dust ourselves off, and keep going. But slip and fall or trip and fall accidents are serious, and you might be dealing with severe or catastrophic injuries. Don’t wait to see what the property owner does. Give us a call and let our Bronx slip and fall attorneys fight for your recovery.
