Slip, Trip & Fall Lawyers in The Bronx

Injured on Someone Else’s Property?

Call Our Experienced The Bronx Premises Liability Law Firm


Accidents happen, but if an accident happens on someone else’s property due to their negligence or failure to create a safe environment, you may have a case for premises liability. Premises liability cases may include:

  • Slips and falls
  • Tripping incidents
  • Elevator accidents
  • Accidents due to construction defects
  • In-store injuries
  • Apartment building accidents

If you have been injured on someone else’s premises, consult an experienced premises liability lawyer in The Bronx to discuss your case and the compensation you may be able to receive. Stores and other facilities in The Bronx that are open to the public are required to maintain safe premises with no hazards that could cause harm to a customer. When owners or employees fail to keep their property safe, an injury may occur to visitors, and those property owners are responsible to compensate for those injuries.

The same is true for apartment buildings in The Bronx. The landlord is required to keep your property safe for tenants and visitors. When they neglect this responsibility, accidents may occur that can cause serious injury.

We’ll help you seek compensation to cover the physical, emotional, and financial burden of an accident on someone else’s premises.

How Do I Know If I Have a Slip and Fall Claim?
What To Do Immediately After a Slip, Trip or Fall

In the unfortunate event you find yourself falling after a slip or trip, report the incident. If you are in a retail space or residential building, find a manager or building supervisor. When you cannot find someone, call 911 and report the injury. You should also take pictures of the scene. Some owners will make repairs after the fact to cover up their negligence. Photographs of the hazard may prove crucial to your case.
Avoid This After a Fall

Your first instinct after falling is to get up and exit. Regardless of how you feel immediately following a slip and fall, do not leave the scene without reporting the incident. If the owner or someone in charge offers you money on the spot, do not take it. The offer may help your case as it shows they had knowledge the condition that caused your incident existed.

How long do I have to make a claim for a premises liability case?
The statute of limitations for a premises liability personal injury cases is three years in the State of New York. (1 year and 90 days if the responsible party is a municipality such as the City of New York). In other words, victims of slip, trip, and fall accidents have three years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the responsible parties. We encourage you to begin the legal process as early as possible to maximize your chances of being rightfully compensated for your damages. If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident, contact us today to begin the process of filing a personal injury lawsuit to get the compensation you deserve.
I slipped and fell on a wet floor at the grocery store. Should the store have had a wet floor sign out?

Stores have a duty to exercise reasonable care in maintaining a safe shopping environment. Using wet floor signs to indicate slippery floors is one way a store owner and employees can reduce the likelihood of a slip and fall accident. If signs are not posted could be evidence that reasonable care wasn’t taken. To win a case, the victim must show that the store store caused, knew, or should have known about the slippery condition that caused the accident but failed to take appropriate action.
