Premises Liability Attorney in NYC
Premises liability, regularly referred to as slip and fall cases, is an area of personal injury law where a person is injured as a result of a property owner’s negligence. In order to be successful in your case, your attorney will need to prove negligence, known as the burden of proof. This entails the preservation of evidence to demonstrate that the property owner knew or should have reasonably known about a hazard and you were injured because of inaction or carelessness. There are countless instances where this can be the case. If you believe that you have a slip and fall case, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

After an accident
If you are seriously injured in a slip and fall accident, it is important to get medical attention immediately and notify the property owner.
