Can I Get Compensated for a Slip and Fall Injury in New York City?

Most of us do not feel unsafe when simply walking along, minding our own business–especially when in generally-safe areas, such as your apartment complex or otherwise. Unfortunately, careless property owners can quickly turn these places into walking safety hazards, and if you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation. Fortunately, we can help. Please read on and reach out to our experienced New York City personal injury lawyer to learn more about how we can guide you through the claims process. Here are some of the questions you may have:

Where do most slip and fall accidents happen?

Slip and fall accidents can happen just about anywhere. However, among the most common places slip and fall accidents occur include construction sites, hotels, sidewalks, supermarkets, restaurants, parking lots, on stairs, bus or train stations, and more.

How do I win a slip and fall injury claim in New York City?

To win a personal injury claim for a slip and fall accident, you will have to hire an experienced attorney who knows how to win premises liability lawsuits. First, your attorney must prove that the property owner knew or should have reasonably known about the unsafe conditions present. Then, your attorney will have to demonstrate that the property owner failed to the safety hazard within the legally-acceptable period of time, injured you, and caused you to face significant damages as a result.

Some of the most valuable evidence our firm may use on your behalf can include security camera footage of your accident, medical documents detailing the origin and extent of your injuries, police reports documenting the incident, pictures of the unsafe conditions that caused you to slip and fall, witness testimony confirming your claim, and more.

What is the statute of limitations for premises liability lawsuits in New York City?

If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, you will have to file a lawsuit within New York City’s statute of limitations. Since the statute of limitations in New York City is three years, you will have three years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the negligent property owner. Please do not make the mistake of waiting too long to file. Our firm is ready to fight for your rights. All you have to do is ask.
