Staten Island Slip and Fall Lawyer

New York is a diverse city with plenty of places for residents and tourists to visit. Restaurants, stores, and outdoor events are numerous. However, when out in the city, most people do not think much about the potential for life-changing slip and fall accidents that can occur.

If you or a loved one have been injured in a slip and fall accident on Staten Island, consult with a slip and fall attorney at Shulman & Hill. Depending on the circumstances, you may have a right to seek compensation for your losses if the slip and fall accident occurred due to another party’s negligence. Our dedicated Staten Island lawyers can review the details of your case during a free legal consultation to determine if you may be eligible to file a premises liability lawsuit.

Staten Island Slip and Fall Cases: Common Injuries

Some may assume that a slip and fall accident can only cause minor harm. However, research from the CDC indicates such accidents can be more severe than most people realize. Every year, nearly one million Americans are hospitalized after sustaining injuries in falling accidents.

Head trauma is a common slip and fall accident injury, as well as broken bones. Victims of slip and fall accidents often sustain injuries to their wrists and arms due to the instinctive way many people try to catch themselves when falling to the ground. A person’s natural reaction may be to thrust their arms forward in an attempt to grab onto something to stop the fall. As a result, they often land in such a way that may cause injury to their arms, wrists, and hands.

You may sustain injuries that will require costly medical care. Whether it is immediate medical assistance or long-term treatment, the bills may be high. Depending on their severity and nature, your injuries might also prevent you from returning to work temporarily or permanently, preventing you from earning a paycheck. This can add to your financial burdens.

This is why you should review your case with one of our premises liability legal experts if you are hurt in a slip and fall accident. It is possible you may be entitled to compensation to help cover your financial losses and pain and suffering. Our Staten Island slip and fall lawyers can review these details and help you determine your next best steps.

Seeking Compensation After a Staten Island Slip and Fall Accident

Property owners, managers, and other relevant parties have certain requirements pertaining to the safety of anyone on their properties. Premises liability laws require ownership and/or management to reasonably limit the chances of anyone being harmed in a slip and fall accident.

Property owners and managers must take reasonable steps to prevent hazardous conditions on their properties, such as performing routine maintenance and regularly checking for hazards. If they become aware of any, they must take swift action to address the dangerous condition. Property owners must also inform any guests or employees of dangerous conditions that either have not yet been removed or simply cannot be addressed.

Victims have the right to pursue compensation for their losses if they are harmed in an accident caused by a property owner’s negligence. Since proving such an accident was the fault of another party can be difficult, slip and fall victims may have a better chance of securing the compensation they are potentially entitled to if they seek legal representation.

Examples of Staten Island Slip and Fall Cases

The following examples do not represent every potential Staten Island slip and fall accident, but they can help you better understand when you may have a valid premises liability case:

  • You slipped on ice in front of a business or in their parking lot because deicing agents were not applied in a timely manner.
  • A property or business owner knew their outdoor lighting was insufficient to fully illuminate the parking lot or outdoor area of their property at night, but they failed to install new lighting. You tripped over an obstruction since you were unable to see as a result of their negligence.
  • You slipped on a recently-mopped floor at a business because a sign indicating the floor was wet had not been put up.
  • You tripped over broken or loose flooring that should have been replaced by the time your accident occurred.

Those are just a few examples. Our Staten Island slip and fall attorneys can help you better understand if your specific case meets the qualifications to pursue compensation.

How Our Staten Island Slip and Fall Law Firm Can Help

Determining how to pursue compensation is merely one reason to work with a lawyer after a Staten Island slip and fall accident.

Without evidence, it can be extremely challenging to prove that your accident was the result of someone else’s negligence. Our team can conduct an investigation of your specific circumstances to yield valuable evidence and build a strong case in your favor.

An investigation may also be needed to identify who may be liable for compensating you. Our slip and fall attorneys will use their investigative resources to determine the potential parties at fault. We can also negotiate with insurers, other attorneys, and all other relevant parties on your behalf, rejecting unreasonably low offers in pursuit of a payout that reflects the true extent of your losses. If a fair settlement is not possible, we are prepared to fight on your behalf in a trial.
