How Can We Help?

Was your trip, slip or fall the result of negligence?

New York Residents are accustomed to living in close quarters and relying on landlords, neighbors, business owners and city agencies to maintain and repair buildings and properties. In cases where a property owner or responsible party fails to repair a broken elevator, provide adequate security or maintain a slippery sidewalk; painful and debilitating injuries may result.

In cases where a property owner knew or should have known about the condition that ultimately caused one to suffer injuries, and yet failed to take action to intervene; it's wise to explore one's legal options. Premises liability cases are often vigorously defended against and can be difficult to prove. It's important, therefore, to seek the advice and counsel of an attorney who has a proven track record of success in helping injured parties recover compensation.

One of the most common types of premises liability matters involves slips, trips and falls. These types of accidents are particularly common in urban areas like New York City where buildings are often older and owners fail to keep up with maintenance and building codes. As a result of a trip and fall or slip and fall accident, an individual may suffer broken bones and injuries to the head, neck and back.

For individuals who have suffered injuries due to the negligent acts of a property owner, it's normal to have many fears and concerns about one's health and related expenses. At the law firm of Sakkas, Cahn & Weiss, LLP we strongly advocate for injured individuals and work to recover compensation to help pay for medical bills, lost wages and other related expenses.
