Have you been injured in a fall in the Bronx or anywhere else in New York City? Are others at fault? You may be entitled to substantial compensation.
Slip-and-fall accidents occur because of dangerous or defective conditions on premises. Property owners are responsible for keeping their properties in reasonable repair and for warning visitors and occupants of dangerous property conditions.
Peter J. Schaffer and experienced accident lawyers working with him handle premises liability claims arising from dangerous property conditions such as:
Unnatural accumulation of snow and ice Defectively designed or maintained parking lots Potholes and sidewalk defects Uneven walking surfaces Dangerous stairs, steps or handrails Loose carpeting Loose or slippery flooring
Slip and fall and premises liability cases commonly occur in public locations such as stores, malls, parking lots, common areas of apartment complexes, sidewalks, and parks. We carefully investigate to determine who is responsible for the dangerous condition and who must be held accountable for our clients' injuries.
Slip and fall accidents might not always seem like serious events when they occur, but they often lead to painful and debilitating injuries. If you or a family member has been hurt in a slip and fall, it is essential to seek medical attention for treatment and a thorough diagnosis.
