TRIP & FALL ACCIDENTS
Assessing Your Slip-And-Fall Accident Claim
Slip/trip-and-fall accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury claims and lawsuits. In Long Island, a property owner or manager has a legal obligation to take action to reasonably make sure that their property does not contain defects or hazards that may cause a slip/trip-and-fall accident to occur.
When a property owner is negligent in maintaining, inspecting or repairing his or her property, it is possible for a person who was injured in a slip/trip-and-fall accident to bring a claim or lawsuit against them for injuries suffered. The attorneys at Bragoli & Associates can help you understand if you may have a claim against the property or business owner.
Attorneys Helping Determine Liability
A claim or lawsuit arising from a slip/trip-and-fall accident can be very complex. At times, the conditions that caused the accident have changed or hazardous defects have been repaired. The property owner may deny liability and say that the victim was responsible for the injuries. Our lawyers can help you establish your personal injury claim by immediately:
- Reviewing the evidence of the scene at the time of the incident
- Interviewing witnesses to the accident
- Reconstructing conditions to show how the accident caused your injuries
- Examining training policies and procedures of the business in question
- Making sure you get the right medical care for your injuries
