Queens Slip & Fall Lawyer

Slip and falls are among the most common types of accidents. Every year, millions of Americans are injured in these types of accidents. One primary reason why slip and falls are so common is because they can happen virtually anywhere. However, there are steps property owners can take to limit the chances of slip and fall accidents occurring on their properties.

There are premises liability laws that require property owners to take reasonable measures to reduce the chances that someone will be injured on their property. Although they cannot prevent all slip and falls, property owners and managers can make a reasonable effort to ensure that hazards on their premises do not put guests at risk of harm.

Unfortunately, this does not mean that all property owners and managers fulfill their duty. Have you or a loved one in the Queens area been injured in a slip and fall accident? If so, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills and other relevant losses.

You should consult a Queens slip and fall attorney to learn more. At Shulman & Hill, our dedicated personal injury lawyers in the Queens area can review your case for free and determine if you may be eligible to seek compensation. They can also handle administrative tasks, file a lawsuit against the negligent property owner, and even negotiate on your behalf to ensure you are fairly compensated.

Queens Slip & Fall Cases: An Overview

A slip and fall may not seem like a major accident when compared to car crashes or other dangerous situations. However, you should never underestimate the potential consequences of being involved in a Queens slip and fall. In fact, falling accidents send nearly one million Americans to the hospital every year.

The types of injuries you might sustain in a slip and fall accident vary depending on the circumstances. In some instances, victims may suffer head injuries that can result in cognitive issues, memory problems, seizures, difficulty regulating emotions, and more.

Injuries to the back, hips, wrists, and arms are also fairly common in Queens slip and fall cases. These may include fractures and broken bones, herniated disks, soft tissue injuries, and more.

Premises Liability and Queens Slip & Fall Cases

If you can show that an accident happened because a property owner neglected their duties under New York’s premises liability laws, you can likely pursue compensation for your injuries.

A Queens slip and fall lawyer can help you state your case. Generally, you must show that:

  • The accident happened when you were on another party’s property
  • The accident was the result of a hazard that ownership should have known about
  • The property owner or manager failed to act in a reasonable manner by fixing the hazard or issuing warnings alerting guests to exercise caution

Examples of Queens Slip & Fall Cases

To better understand how you might be injured in a Queens slip and fall on another’s property, consider the following examples:

  • You were walking in the parking lot of a business at night and tripped over an obstruction. You could not see the obstruction at night because a property owner did not install adequate lighting on their property.
  • An item fell to the floor in the supermarket. By the time you tripped over it, an employee or manager could have spotted the hazard and removed it, but no one did so.
  • A property owner negligently failed to replace or repair broken flooring. Because of this, you tripped over it and injured yourself as a result.
  • You slipped on ice in the outdoor areas of someone’s property. If they failed to apply a de-icing agent in a timely manner, they could be responsible for any slip and fall accidents that occur both outside and inside the property.
  • You slipped on a recently-mopped wet floor because ownership was negligent and no one put up a sign letting you know the floor was wet.

How a Slip & Fall Law Firm in the Queens Area Can Help

When you are injured in a Queens slip and fall resulting from someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

You will be more likely to collect fair compensation if you seek representation from a personal injury law firm in the Queens area. Our Queens slip and fall attorneys at Shulman & Hill can help you in the following key ways:

Investigating the Circumstances Surrounding a Slip & Fall Accident

An investigation may be necessary to gather evidence proving the accident was genuinely the result of someone else’s negligence. If you were injured because you slipped on a wet floor that did not have a caution sign, our Queens attorneys could potentially interview witnesses or review security footage to prove there was no sign posted at the time of your accident.

Handling Administrative Tasks

Our slip and fall attorneys can help by handling all major correspondence and administrative tasks throughout the litigation process. This allows you to focus on your recovery and well-being.

Negotiating for a Fair Settlement

This is often among the most important reasons to work with one of our premises liability lawyers in the Queens area. In some cases, insurers may want to pay you as little as they can justify. To reach a settlement or secure damages that reflect the full extent of your injuries and losses, our legal professionals can negotiate aggressively on your behalf.
