If you or someone you love was injured in a slip and fall accident, you might have the ability to hold the at-fault party financially responsible for the damages it caused.
When a Huntington slip and fall accident lawyer from our firm represents you, we will build a case with strong evidence and negotiate on your behalf with the insurance company.
If your case cannot be resolved with an insurance settlement, depending upon the unique circumstances of your case, our team of legal professionals will build a court case and represent you at trial.
It all begins with a complimentary consultation with one of our team members.
Our Slip And Fall Lawyer Will Fight for Your Damages
When you are ready to hold the at-fault party liable for their negligence, our team will gather evidence to prove they owed you a reasonable duty of care and failed to provide it.
We will also work to prove their negligence caused your injuries and their resulting financial consequences. The valuation of your damages will be thorough and accurate, with guidance and direction from our team.
Economic Damages You Could Collect
A slip and fall from a height or into dangerous debris might result in serious injuries. See a doctor if you were hurt in a slip and fall accident to ensure prompt diagnosis and treatment of your injuries.
After establishing liability, we will start building a case for the following types of economic damages:
- Income loss
- Medical bills
- Property damage
- In-home assistance
- Assistive medical devices
Recoverable Non-Economic Damages
In addition to the economic impact of a slip, trip, and fall accident, you may also be entitled to recover many types of non-economic damages. The importance of including non-economic damages in the assessment of your financial expenses and losses cannot be overstated.
These include compensation for the lasting physical, mental, and emotional aftermath of the accident, such as:
- Physical disability
- Pain and suffering
- Physical disfigurement
- Loss of future earnings
- Mental and emotional angst
Complying With New York’s Statute of Limitations
New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules (CVP) §214 limits the time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit if you were in a slip and fall due to someone else’s negligence. You could recoup the costs of your injury-related medical care and other damages if your lawsuit is filed within the allotted time.
If a slip and fall led to the passing of your loved one, we extend to you our heartfelt condolences. New York Estates, Powers & Trusts (EPT) §5-4.1 limits the amount of time your family has to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
While your family copes with the loss, our client support team will concentrate on building an effective claim or lawsuit on your behalf. We consider it a special privilege to represent the surviving family members of slip & fall wrongful death victims.
We are dedicated to winning the compensation you need and the justice your departed loved one deserves.

You May Not Need to Go to Court
Many personal injury cases are settled out of court. Yours might also resolve with an insurance settlement. As your case progresses, we will:
- Provide regular updates
- Assign liability to the responsible party
- Handle all communications
- Build a strong evidence file
- Assign a value for your case
- Fight relentlessly to win the best possible case outcome for you
In addition, we will negotiate with the at-fault party to ensure your case is handled favorably. Our goal is to ensure you are not left with out-of-pocket expenses and that your damages are not inaccurately valued.
Do Not Speak to the Insurance Company Without Us
If the evidence of your slip and fall accident proves the at-fault party’s liability, their insurer might offer to settle your case. If that happens, we urge you not to:
- Make any statements about cause or fault
- Make any statements at all without us
- Accept a speedy settlement offer
A speedy settlement might not include all the expenses of the accident. When we assign a value to your case, we make sure your current bills are all accounted for in the assessment.
You May Not Understand the True Cost of Your Losses Right Away
In the days and weeks following your slip and fall accident, you may not fully understand the cost of your various expenses. Often, a slip and fall accident victim must go through months of treatment before they fully understand the implications of their condition.
We are careful to examine every relevant detail of your case as we work tirelessly on your behalf to win every dollar you deserve. Do not accept any money until you have reached maximum medical improvement, as this could leave you with out-of-pocket expenses.
