Falls are a leading cause of injury and death across the country and slip and falls that occur within a store are increasingly common. New York has complex liability laws, and because of this you’ll need a lawyer to help you avoid paying those expensive medical bills. At The Licatesi Law Group, we are here to collect evidence to prove negligence and make sure you meet the criteria for a jury to award your case.
Property owners are always responsible to upkeep their grounds and maintain safe environments during ALL times, and to help your case, we will need to show the property owners negligence to the hazard that caused your fall. If you have been injured and require medical attention as the result of the negligence of a property owner, you could be entitled to compensation. For a store slip and fall case to be successful, these are the things we have to be able to prove: That there was a dangerous or hazardous condition on the store premises, that the property owner knew or should have known about the condition, and the property owner failed to do anything to fix this condition on their property.
We recommend documenting as much evidence regarding your accident as possible. This can be done numerous ways such as writing on paper the details of the accident, taking pictures of the area specifically showing where you fell, and taking pictures of any injuries received from the fall. If anyone saw you fall in the store, it’s important to get their contact information as well.
After collecting the above supporting evidence, we will have a strong case to prove the property owner was aware or should have been aware of the hazards present and did not act on it to prevent any injury on their property. You should not be the party responsible for paying any medical bills caused from this accident as it is not your fault! We will work tirelessly to recover the damages you deserve relatively quickly. In other cases, we will file a lawsuit and take your case to trial.
