Slip & Fall Accident Attorney in NY
Slip and fall accidents are common reasons for filing personal injury claims.
Victims can suffer life-changing injuries or even
wrongful death. Slip and fall accidents can be caused in a variety of ways when one party
is negligent and does not provide a reasonable level of care to others.
Some common causes of slip and falls include:
- Wet floors
- Construction site defects
- Dangerous staircases
- Uneven pavement
If you were injured in a slip and fall accident, we encourage you to seek
legal assistance from our
Hudson Valley personal injury lawyer at Michael R. Varble & Associates, P.C.
Pursuing Compensation for Damages
In the event of a slip and fall, we can help you pursue damages to cover
lost wages, medical expenses, and the pain and suffering you have suffered.
Just like many other areas under personal injury law, slip and fall cases
hinge on proving negligence. Before you proceed with the filing of a lawsuit,
our firm can help ensure that you have enough evidence to back up your
claim. You should, however, take action as quickly as possible because
New York has a three-year statute of limitations. In some cases, you must
file within ninety (90) days as well. As a result, you should contact
us to discuss your slip and fall accident as soon as possible so your
claim is not time barred.
Experienced Legal Guidance
Under New York law, you may be partly liable for your injuries if comparative
negligence is proven. In such cases, the amount you can recover will be
reduced. You will likely be facing opposition from the insurance company
of the property owner. Because of the insurance company's training
and experience negotiating the minimum compensation possible, you will
need the representation of a tough Hudson Valley slip and fall accident
lawyer from our firm. If no settlement can be reached, we can proceed
to trial. With more than 15 years of experience, we have the skills to
help you. You can have confidence in our capabilities.
