Under New York Law, property owners have a responsibility to repair hazards or provide adequate warnings. If a property owner knew or should have known about a hazard but did not take action and you suffered injuries, you have the right to hold them liable. This means the law allows you to file a civil lawsuit to recover compensation for your expenses and losses.
At Friedman & Simon, L.L.P., our attorneys know how to hold property owners liable for falls and any resulting injuries and the related damages. If you suffered injuries in a fall in New Hyde Park, New York City, or a surrounding area, we will review your case for free.
