What should I do if I slip and fell at a house I don’t own?
If you’re here, chances are you suffered a slip and fall injury on a residential property in New York. There are lots of factors that come into play as to what you need to do when you suffer an injury on a residential property. One, you need to get photographs of the location where the accident occurred. I don’t mean a picture of the house; I’m talking about a picture of the spot where you fell. That becomes very important. The earlier those photographs are taken, the better. You want to make sure when you go to the hospital that you let the hospital and/or the ambulance personnel know that you fell while walking up or down the stairs and that is how your injury happened and it’s documented. You want to make sure you retain an attorney who knows how to handle personal injury litigation and how to handle slip and fall cases. That attorney will make sure the investigation is done properly, that the proper photographs are taken, if they can be taken, and that you do what you need to do to help ensure that we’re able to get the best recovery possible.
The stronger the evidence you have, the more likely you are to have a result in your case that is fair and full. From here, we utilize all the evidence that has been collected. We build out a strong case for you and fight against the homeowner’s insurance company to ensure that you get justice.
Your justice comes in the form of compensation. We know that the insurance company is going to push against us to keep you from getting the results you deserve. We will be doing negotiations with the insurance company to come up with a case value we can agree on. Most of the time, we can settle before trial but we will get your case ready for trial from the very beginning so we are never surprised.
Whether you get the results you deserve through a settlement or through trial, we will be by your side every step of the way. It is extremely important that you reach out to us right away. The longer you wait, the harder it becomes to get ahead of the insurance company. We urge you to reach out right away. We care deeply about the success of your case to get you the justice you deserve.
