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. Contact us at your earliest convenience!
