New York Slip & Fall Lawyers
Get the Legal Help You Need
Slip and falls are caused by spills or wet surfaces that present a safety hazard to people on the premises. Property owners are required to post visible warnings such as "Wet Floor" signs near potential hazards. If you are injured due to a condition for which there was no warning, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the property owner. Our New York slip and fall lawyers at Paris & Chaikin, PLLC, know how to pursue the maximum compensation you will need to make a full recovery.
What Causes Slip & Falls?
Some conditions that cause slip and fall accidents include:
- Wet floors
- Icy steps
- Uneven sidewalks or stairs
- Garbage or obstacles in walkway
- Frayed or uneven carpeting
Property owners are responsible for placing warning signs near potential hazards. They also have a duty to fix unsafe conditions in a timely manner. If they fail to do so and you are injured because of unsafe conditions on their premises, seek a personal injury lawyer immediately.
What You Can Recover
Our attorneys are highly skilled in pursuing compensation for clients injured due to inadequate maintenance or warning.
Compensation can cover:
- Lost wages from being unable to work
- Medical expenses from hospital stays or doctor visits
- Pain and suffering from the accident
- Other damages
You should never pursue a personal injury claim without legal counsel, as these cases can be difficult to prove and you will likely not recover the maximum compensation you need for a full recovery.
