Slip & Fall

Manhattan Slip & Fall Attorney

Holding Negligent Property Owners Accountable in New York

Slip and fall cases are some of the most common injury cases. When a visitor or patron slips on a surface because of an unsafe condition and injures himself, that individual may be entitled to file a lawsuit.

These accidents can occur at any time. Unfortunately, they are also usually preventable. A property owner who fails to adequately protect his or her patrons needs to be held accountable for the resulting injuries. Our team at Loscalzo & Loscalzo, P.C. is dedicated to pursuing the best possible results for all Manhattan personal injury cases.

Common Injuries in Slip & Fall Accidents

Common injuries may include:

  • Fractures and Broken Bones: The impact of a fall can result in fractures or broken bones, affecting various parts of the body, such as wrists, arms, hips, and ankles. Recovery from these injuries may necessitate extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and time away from work.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): A fall, especially if it involves a blow to the head, can lead to traumatic brain injuries. TBIs vary in severity, from concussions to more severe complications, impacting cognitive function, memory, and overall well-being.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Slip-and-fall accidents may damage the spinal cord, resulting in life-altering consequences such as paralysis or long-term mobility challenges.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: Sprains, strains, and other soft tissue injuries are common in slip-and-fall incidents. They can cause pain, discomfort, and potential long-term complications if not properly treated.
  • Cuts and Bruises: While less severe than some other injuries, cuts and bruises can still lead to significant pain and discomfort. Sometimes, these seemingly minor injuries may also result in complications such as infections.

What Damages Could Be Recovered in a Slip & Fall Accident Claim?

Potential damages may include:

  • Medical Expenses: Recovering damages for medical expenses is paramount. This includes costs connected with hospitalization, surgery, medication, rehabilitation, and any other necessary medical treatments.
  • Lost Wages and Future Earnings: If your injuries have resulted in time away from work, you could be entitled to compensation for lost wages. Additionally, if your earning capacity is diminished due to the accident, we will pursue damages for future earnings.
  • Pain and Suffering: Physical injuries often result in emotional distress and pain. Compensation for pain and suffering strives to address the intangible losses you've experienced as a result of the slip and fall accident.
  • Property Damage: In some instances, personal belongings may be damaged during the fall. Compensation for property damage can help cover the costs of repairing or replacing damaged items.
  • Punitive Damages: In cases of extreme negligence or intentional misconduct, punitive damages may be pursued to penalize the responsible party and deter similar behavior.

If you slip and fall due to a hazardous condition of any kind in New York, the owner of the property where you were injured can be held liable. Don't let your injury go unreported and uncompensated. We advocate for justice in situations where negligence has led directly to bodily harm.

Furthermore, your insurance company must also be held accountable for the policy you have with them. Often, insurance companies attempt to pay the bare minimum on a policy or a claim in hopes that the patient will accept the cash and move on. You may be entitled to more compensation.
