Providing Legal Options When Injuries Occur On Others’ Property

If you’ve recently tripped or slipped and fell, resulting in a serious injury on someone else’s property, you likely have many questions such as:

  • Who will pay my medical bill?
  • Am I entitled to compensation for my injuries?
  • If I was at fault or even partially at fault for the injury, do I still have a claim?
  • Why aren’t the property owners or managers automatically at fault for the accident? It happened on their premises after all.
  • What is negligence anyway?

Holding Property Owners Responsible For Their Negligence

While it may appear clear that the property owner owes you a duty of safety while on their premises, injured persons do not always prevail in these cases. Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents in New York tend to be hard to prove. The negligence laws are complex and state that you must prove that the other party acted in a way that created the hazard or that they were aware of the hazard that caused your injury.

Experience Matters In Winning Tough Cases

That’s why you need a good lawyer handling your case. New York personal injury lawyer Howard R. Sanders, Esq., has over 30 years of legal experienced. He has also worked on both defense and plaintiff cases. This means he knows what arguments the other side will present in order to refute your claim, so he can be better prepared to argue in your favor.

Attorney Sanders provides a free case evaluation to injury victims to assess whether they have a case against a negligent property owner or property manager. He will carefully examine every detail of your accident, identifying the facts that support a personal injury claim. Call our Midtown Manhattan firm to schedule your free initial consultation at 212-983-5151 or toll free at 800-731-9976.

As an experienced trial lawyer, Howard Sanders doesn’t hesitate to take a case to trial to obtain the maximum compensation his client is entitled to receive. However, he will also aggressively negotiate for settlement if that will quickly provide the money a client is entitled to and needs for medical costs, lost income and compensation for pain and suffering.
