Consult the Queens slip and fall lawyer at Segan, Nemerov & Singer P.C to determine whether you are owed damages for the negligence of a property or business owner.
Our Queens slip and fall personal injury lawyers can help you understand the law. There are many factors to consider, such as previous complaints about an existing hazard, determining negligence of a business or property owner, and determining negligence, if any, of the individual injured. These are only a few of the factors that a personal injury firm will analyze when investigating your case.
There are several types of slip and fall accidents including slippery surface falls, stairway accidents, fall from a terrace or balcony, parking ramp falls, sidewalk falls and bathtub and shower falls, to name a few. A property owner has an obligation to keep their property in a safe condition for those invited onto the property. If it can be proven that a property owner was negligent and knew or should have known about the dangerous or defective condition that caused a slip and fall, you may be compensated for your injuries.
