Can I Sue For a Slip And Fall Injury in New York City?

Slip and fall accidents can happen nearly anywhere, which is part of what makes them so frightening and devastating. They can occur in parking lots, on sidewalks, in hotels, supermarkets, or just about anyplace else you can think of. If you are someone who has recently sustained injuries in a serious slip and fall accident, you most likely now require financial compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, in-home care, lost wages, and more.

Fortunately, our firm knows how to help. Our experienced New York City personal injury attorneys have helped the wrongly injured recover the compensation they need for years, and we are ready to put that experience to work for you. Please read on to learn more about how we can help you through the legal process going forward. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What do I need to do to file a lawsuit for a slip and fall injury?

If you are looking to sue a negligent party–whether via a premises liability lawsuit, an auto accident lawsuit, or otherwise, you will first have to hire an attorney who can prove that you were injured as a direct result of that party’s negligence. As long as your attorney can demonstrate that the property owner knew or should have known about the safety hazard present, failed to fix it and that you were injured and suffered damages as a result, you should win the compensation you need.

All too often, this is frequently more challenging than clients may think. However, our firm will tirelessly work to obtain various types of evidence, including pictures of the unsafe conditions that caused your accident, witness statements corroborating your claim, medical documents, police reports of the incident, and more.

What does the term “statute of limitations mean”?

If you were wrongly injured in the state of New York, you will have to file a lawsuit within a certain period of time, known as the statute of limitations. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York is three years, you will have three years from the date of your accident to pursue legal action against the negligent party. We are ready to begin the claims process on your behalf–don’t delay. The sooner you reach out, the better.
