Slip-And-Fall Injury Attorney In The New York Metropolitan Area

We Can Fight For Compensation In Your Case

It is often easy to overlook the dangers that New Yorkers face on a daily basis just from walking down the street or moving from place to place, even inside a building. An untold number of hazards are present that we might fall victim to through no fault of our own. The lawyers at Simon & Gilman, LLP, will be there for you in your time of need if you are hurt in a slip-and-fall accident.

In Queens, as in all of New York, there is no shortage of older buildings and sidewalks in disrepair. It is up to the property owners and managers to provide a safe place for the people who use their property; if they are neglectful or otherwise inattentive to dangerous conditions, they could be held liable when people are injured.

Holding The Negligent Parties Accountable

Any number of accidents could occur from such negligence as:

  • Ice and/or snow that is left unshoveled or is allowed to repeatedly thaw and refreeze on sidewalks or driveways
  • Stairs that are broken, not up to code or otherwise damaged
  • Carpeting that is frayed, torn or improperly affixed to the floor
  • Floors that are slippery due to moisture or being improperly cleaned

It's not just the elderly who can suffer an injury from tripping or slipping. People of all ages and mobility levels could suffer injuries as a result of these situations, ranging from broken bones and torn ligaments to facial lacerations and head injuries.
