Slip-And-Fall Accident Attorneys

Seriously Injured On Someone Else's Property? You May Have A Legal Claim For Your Injuries.

Slip-and-fall cases — also known by their more general term, premises liability claims — sometimes get a bad name. Many people wrongly assume that only people with minor injuries file lawsuits against private property owners or the municipality for sidewalk accidents and other incidents.

The truth, however, is that so many people file slip-and-fall claims because they suffer serious injuries due to someone else's failure to maintain premises in a safe condition. They shouldn't have to shoulder the cost of expensive medical care, missed work and other financial burdens by their own. An experienced lawyer can help them get fair compensation for their injuries. At StolzenbergCortelli, LLP, our experienced attorneys fight for what our clients in New York City, Westchester County and other parts of New York deserve.

What Are Examples Of Premises Liability Claims In New York?

Many retail store accidents and other accidents caused by a property owner's carelessness involve one of two central issues:

  • A property owner fails to repair or remedy a dangerous condition and exposes people who come onto the property to risk of harm.
  • A property owner fails to adequately warn people entering the premises of a dangerous condition that cannot be repaired.

This means that people may have cases for situations such as a store owner failing to clear snow and ice from walkways during the winter, or a landlord refusing to fix cracked staircases or sidewalks, or the owner of a shopping mall failing to provide adequate lighting in a parking lot that then becomes vulnerable to crime.

Every claim comes down to the strength of the underlying legal arguments. Where an experienced lawyer can help — and where our experienced trial attorneys shine — is in developing strong cases when a property owner's fault has contributed to a client's injuries. Using aggressive litigation and negotiation tactics, we help our clients recover compensation for:

  • Lost wages
  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
