We Will Fight to Recover Your Slip and Fall Damages
No one should have their life turned upside down because of someone else’s mistake. For over 30 years, Friedman & Simon, L.L.P., has been a powerful advocate for injury victims across New York and Long Island. We fight to hold negligent parties financially responsible for the damages they cause.
We will seek the financial compensation you and your family deserve, including awards for:
Past and Future Medical Treatment
The New York State Department of Health reports that falls are the leading cause of injury hospitalizations for New Yorkers aged 0 to 14 and 25 and over. Furthermore, the department states that even trips and falls from the same level cause severe injuries, including traumatic brain injuries and hip fractures. As a result, the short and long-term medical costs from a slip and fall are potentially significant.
Our Mineola slip and fall lawyers seek reimbursement for your current medical expenses and compensation for necessary future treatment, including:
- Ambulance transportation
- Emergency department medical care
- Hospital stays
- Physical therapy
- Mobility aids
- Long-term nursing services
Additional Economic Compensation
In addition to medical bills, you likely have various other out-of-pocket losses due to your slip and fall injury. Our attorneys identify and seek compensation for:
- Lost wages, benefits, bonuses, and earnings
- Future lost income/lost earning capacity (if your injury prevents you from returning to your job)
- Personal property damages (such as the cost of damaged laptops, cell phones, or jewelry)
- The cost of hiring someone to perform household services your injuries prevent you from performing (such as childcare, driving, and cleaning)
- Medical travel expenses
Non-economic damages award victims for how their personal injury diminishes their quality of life – physically, mentally, and emotionally. You are entitled to seek compensation for:
- Severe, permanent, and disabling injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Mental anguish
- Physical pain
- Emotional suffering
- Loss of enjoyment
Wrongful Death Compensation
Our sincere condolences to you and your family if your loved one died because of a fatal slip and fall injury. It would be our honor to seek justice for their loss, as we have done successfully for the surviving family members of many wrongful death victims for over thirty years.
We will fight to recover economic damages and non-economic compensation on behalf of your deceased loved one, including medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, and awards for their pain and suffering. Our Mineola wrongful death lawyers will pursue justice from the responsible parties.

Act Quickly to Build Your Trip and Fall Case
New York law establishes that property owners owe those on their premises a duty of care. In other words, owners (or those “in control” of a property, such as a residential or commercial tenant) have a legal obligation to keep buildings and grounds reasonably safe.
Negligent or unsafe conditions that contribute to slip and fall accidents include but are not limited to:
- Lack of snow/ice removal
- Broken or cracked flooring
- Ripped carpeting
- Obstructed walkways and stairwells
- Lack of railings and banisters
- Lack of adequate lighting
- Wet or slippery floors
The sooner you reach out, the sooner we will begin collecting evidence to prove negligence caused your injury. Our team will locate and contact witnesses, obtain available surveillance video, and canvass the scene of your fall for physical data.
We also use case experts when needed. Expert witnesses include healthcare professionals, vocational rehabilitation specialists, economists, and life care planners who will testify regarding your injuries, their effect on your ability to work, and your expected future expenses.
File Your Case Before Statute of Limitations Expires
Constructing a robust case takes time. Acting quickly ensures you have time to file your claim or lawsuit within the statute of limitations for personal injury and wrongful death, established by New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214 and Estates, Powers & Trusts § 5-4.1, respectively. Other time limitation periods might apply to your case, depending upon the particular circumstances of your claim. We will gladly review this with you in a no-obligation case review and free legal consultation.
Failing to adhere to the statute of limitations will result in the court dismissing your case. An expired time limit will also destroy your bargaining power when seeking an insurance settlement. It is in your best interest to bring your case to our personal injury lawyers right away.
