Injured in a Stairwell in the Bronx? Here’s What You Should Know.

Unfortunately, people can sustain injuries just about anywhere and at any time, and stairwells are no different. That being said, stairwell accidents are among the most common causes of slip or trip and falls in the Bronx, and if you were injured in a stairwell due to no fault of your own, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help you heal. Some of the most common causes of stairwell accidents include loose railings, damaged steps, lack of security, missing steps, and more. If you were injured in a stairwell accident, look no further than our Bronx personal injury lawyer. Our firm is ready to represent you to the best of our ability. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What should I do if I was injured in a stairwell due to no fault of my own?

If you were injured in a stairwell accident, you should take several steps to document the facts of the incident. You should first call emergency services to the scene of the accidents and ask anyone who saw your accident occur for their name, phone number, and email address. You should then take pictures of the unsafe stairwell conditions that caused your accident. After emergency services arrive and you are transported to a hospital for treatment, you should ensure that you receive a copy of all medical documentation and bills associated with your injury. Finally, you should hire an experienced Bronx personal injury lawyer who has the knowledge and skill needed to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim.

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

The statute of limitations is the amount of time you are granted to take legal action against a liable party. The statute of limitations for premises liability claims in New York City is, generally, three years, which means that in most cases, you will only have three years from the date of your accident to file a claim against the party responsible for your injuries. If you wait any longer than three years, you will most likely lose your right to sue. We are here to assist you today.
