When a person is injured in a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident, the property owner is often very reluctant to admit blame. Insurance companies aggressively defend against such claims, and sometimes even blame the accident on the victim.
At Surdez & Perez P.C., our lawyers know how to find the facts in slip-and-fall accident claims — facts that point the blame where it belongs. We are strong advocates for victims of personal injury accidents in Queens and throughout the New York City metro area.
Common causes of slip-and-fall accidents include:
- Ice and snow on walkways
- Cracks and potholes
- Tears in carpets
- Uneven footing
- Faulty railings
- Inadequate lighting
- Failure to use treading and other fall-prevention measures
We know New York City. We are familiar with the premises liability statutes, the building codes and other factors that play a role in slip-and-fall accident litigation.
We have a reputation as strong litigators. We do not simply accept an offer so we can move on to the next case. We fight for full and fair compensation, and if they don’t offer it, we are always prepared to take them to court.
If a property owner’s negligence has left you injured, you have rights. We can help you pursue the compensation you need and deserve after this serious personal injury.
