Your first step in a slip and fall case is to file a claim with the insurance company that provides liability coverage for the property or business owner who is responsible for your accident. In some cases, it may be possible to reach a slip and fall settlement to resolve your claim. However, an insurer may fight your claim by disputing the facts or severity of your injuries. Insurance companies are motivated to protect their own bottom line, and your claim is a threat to profits.

This is not an exhaustive list. If you’ve incurred harm of any sort in a slip and fall accident, it’s important to reach out to a slip and fall attorney as soon as possible. If the negligence of another caused your accident, you might be able to obtain compensation for your damages. When you’re facing a mountain of medical bills and don’t know where to turn, contact the NYC slip and fall lawyers at Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek, P.C. for help.
Slip and fall accidents live under the area of premises liability. By law, property owners are required to maintain their spaces in a reasonably safe condition for those who enter. If they don’t, they may be liable to pay the losses for a victim who incurs injuries because they failed to comply with their legal duty.
To better understand how a property owner may breach the duty to keep the premises safe, some examples may be useful.
While liability may seem clear in a slip and fall case, certain factors can complicate your claim. Plus, there may be multiple potential parties in a premises liability case, including an owner, operator, property manager, landlord, tenant, and many more. For these reasons, it’s essential to retain a New York slip and fall lawyer to represent you.
If the insurer refuses to pay a fair, reasonable amount of compensation to settle your claim, it may be necessary to file a slip and fall lawsuit in court. Working with an attorney is critical in litigation, especially considering the complicated legal concepts, New York statutes, court rules, and other issues.
According to a 2017 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), unintentional falls rank near the top for injuries treated in emergency rooms across the country. Many of these slip and fall accidents are preventable, but victims still suffer physically, emotionally, and financially. Fortunately, New York law allows you to seek compensation for your losses. The claims process can be highly complex, so it’s important to trust a New York premises liability lawyer to assist with your case.
If you slipped and fell, or sustained other injuries due to dangerous conditions on another party’s property, Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek, P.C. can help. We will handle calls with insurers and the other party’s legal representation. During the aftermath of a trip and fall, it’s important that you concentrate on your health and recovery – let us handle the rest.
