Pursuing Compensation For Slip-And-Fall Victims
Pedestrians often slip and fall or trip and fall while walking along the busy sidewalks or inside buildings in New York City. A fall can result in lacerations, broken bones and even head injuries. These injuries can leave the victim with limited mobility, severe pain and a mountain of medical bills. If you suffered a slip-and-fall injury or a trip-and-fall injury, Silver & Kelmachter, LLP can fight for the maximum compensation you need to weather the storm.
Holding Property Owners Accountable
Property owners have an obligation to keep their property safe and free of hazards. A negligent owner can be held liable if their negligence resulted in your injury. Our attorneys have successfully resolved slip-and-fall accident cases stemming from:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Torn carpet or rumpled rugs
- Snowy or icy walkways
We also have extensive experience pursuing compensation for people hurt in trip-and-fall cases, which can be caused by hazards such as:
- Uneven or cracked sidewalks
- Poor lighting
- Missing or broken railings
- Debris, boxes or other objects left in public walkways or store aisles
- Hazardous pedestrian walkways near construction sites
Whether you slipped or tripped, if you suffered a fall while in a store or venue, file an accident report as soon as possible to document your injury. Do not speak to the property owner or the insurance company without first speaking to a lawyer. Doing so may damage your case.
Trip-and-fall and slip-and-fall claims hinge on the facts and circumstances of the accident. During our more than 30 years of practice, our attorneys have secured substantial settlements for injured pedestrians and fall victims. We know how to build a strong case, and the insurance companies know that we do not back down from a fight.
