Long Island City Slip and Fall Lawyer

While falls are more likely to happen during the winter in Long Island City, they can occur anytime. A recently-mopped floor in a restaurant, uneven flooring in a store, a broken staircase, or even an electrical cord that has not been taped down can all be trip and fall hazards.

Slip and falls can cause serious injuries, including broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and head injuries. These risks go up with age but a bad fall can affect anyone. Some of these injuries can result in serious, life-long treatment that can cause expensive medical bills. If someone is found to be responsible for the fall, you may be eligible for compensation.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured, a Long Island City slip and fall accident lawyer at Shulman & Hill can help you pursue the compensation you may be entitled to.

Common Slip and Fall Injuries

Many people may assume that falls are relatively harmless, but they can have serious consequences. Falls are especially dangerous to people over the age of 65, but anyone of any age can be badly injured from a fall. One of the most serious consequences that someone can face as a result of a fall is a head injury.

Head injuries can affect your life permanently, resulting in cognitive difficulties, impaired memory, physical limitations, and sometimes death. If you strike your head during a fall, it is important to get care as soon as possible. Not every symptom from a head injury will appear right after a fall.

A head injury may result in:

  • Concussion
  • Contusion
  • Skull fracture
  • Bleeding under the skull
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)

Other types of injuries can be just as expensive and have lifelong consequences. Broken bones can be costly to treat and spinal cord injuries may paralyze you for the rest of your life. If you have experienced injuries from a fall, contact one of Shulman & Hill’s personal injury lawyers for help.

Determining Liability After a Long Island City Slip and Fall

If you fell and were injured on another person’s property, you may be eligible for compensation. Property owners are required to keep their property safe for expected visitors, including minimizing the risk of a fall. In the winter, this includes clearing pathways of snow and ice.

A Long Island City slip and fall attorney can help you determine liability after a slip and fall. Several factors go into determining who may be liable for an injury and what compensation can look like. These factors include the kind of property where the fall took place, how the fall happened, and what actions could have been done to prevent the fall.

Different parties may be determined liable for a fall. These include:

  • Business owners
  • Landlords
  • Property owners
  • The City

Liability can be determined during an investigation conducted by our slip and fall lawyers in Long Island City. The investigation will look at all of the facts of your case.

Once liability has been determined, a slip and fall lawyer can build a strong case on your behalf for possible compensation.

Am I Eligible for Compensation?

Falls can be serious and cause injuries that result in expensive medical bills and treatment. Some injuries can result in loss of income. A personal injury lawyer in Long Island City can help you pursue compensation for these losses after a fall.

Compensation is determined through several factors. A Long Island City slip and fall attorney will look at your medical bills, any loss of income you may have experienced, as well as the overall effect the injury has and will have on your life.

A lawyer from Shulman & Hill understands that every case is different. By looking at all of the facts of your case, one of our lawyers can determine what may be the best outcome for you and your situation. We work hard to pursue optimal results for our clients.

Why Hire a Long Island City Slip and Fall Lawyer?

A lawyer from a slip and fall injury firm in Long Island City will play an important role in helping you secure the compensation you seek. In cases where people do not hire a lawyer, they may be tempted to accept a settlement offer that does not adequately cover their expenses as a result of the fall.

A Long Island City lawyer from Shulman & Hill can determine what compensation you may be eligible for and build a strong case on your behalf to pursue it. This includes collecting supporting evidence that shows how the potentially negligent party caused your injuries and how the injuries have directly resulted in your financial and non-financial losses.

Going through the legal system is complicated for people who are not familiar with it. An experienced Long Island City slip and fall lawyer can also make sure that every step of the legal process is completed correctly.
