Slip-And-Fall Accidents

We Will Fight to Maximize Your Recovery After a Slip-and-Fall Accident

We have all fallen down at some point in our lives. Parents are often amazed at how resilient toddlers are as their children learn to walk. Who has not had that feeling of embarrassment after slightly slipping on ice on a New York sidewalk? However, slip-and-fall accidents are frequently the cause of serious and catastrophic injuries. Individuals who have never suffered significant harm from falling down may not realize the severity of these accidents. Head trauma, spinal cord injuries, back pain, broken bones and torn ligaments can all occur in a slip, trip and fall. A victim may be out of work for extended periods of time while fighting to recover from serious injuries.

Serious Lawyers for Serious Premises Liability Claims

At the law office of Kimelman Law PLLC, we take slip-and-fall injuries seriously. Property owners have a duty to maintain safe premises for people who visit or use the property. All-too-often, negligent maintenance is the cause or primary contributing factor in a slip-and-fall accident.

Premises liability claims can involve a wide-range of issues, including:

Slips on wet floors

Uneven pavement or icy sidewalks

Improper gutter maintenance allowing ice to build in a parking lot or walkway

Unsafe stocking procedures allowing objects to fall from shelves

Inadequate lighting in stairwells

Faulty railings

Falls on boats or docks

Negligent supervision of patrons

Inadequate security

These types of cases take detailed investigation and can be challenging. Our results-driven advocacy in personal injury law focuses on building a position beginning on day one. We leverage that strength to produce results in skillful negotiations, when possible. However, when a property owner and their insurance company fail to do what is right, we are fully prepared to take the case to trial to maximize compensation for our clients.

Diligent Investigations, Aggressive Trial Advocacy

We thoroughly investigate each accident and know how to prove that a property owner was negligent in allowing a hazard to cause serious injury. We know how to substantiate medical evidence and show juries how deeply the accident has harmed our clients. Our trial lawyers have ready access to, or know how to find, the right experts to provide evidence. Our knowledge of the insurance industry is a key asset in fighting to secure compensation for our clients.
