Many people are hurt after coming in contact with unsafe property conditions. If you were seriously injured while on another person’s property, however, you likely have a valid premises liability claim against the property owner. That said, it’s always best to proceed with a seasoned Buffalo premises liability lawyer in your corner. Contact Goldstein & Greco today to learn more about how our firm can assist you.

Who's to Blame?

Where Slip & Falls Happen

Slip and fall accidents can happen in a wide range of places and for a variety of reasons. Just some of those are as follows:

  • Supermarkets
  • Retail Stores
  • Shopping Malls
  • Stairwells
  • Hotels
  • Parking Lots
  • Sidewalks
  • Restaurants
  • In the Workplace

If you were hurt because of unsafe property conditions, such as poor lighting, slippery surfaces, or a lack of security, you’re likely entitled to financial compensation, but only if you can satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim. To do so, you should hire a competent attorney and work to document exactly how the accident happened the day it happened.

Documenting a Slip & Fall Accident

After a slip and fall or any other type of property-related injury, you should do your best to document the incident. This can include taking the following steps:

 

  1. Notifying the property owner of your injuries. If you were injured in a department store or supermarket, management or ownership should write up a store incident report.
  2. Calling the police to the scene of your accident and requesting an ambulance for immediate medical care.
  3. Gathering contact information of all witnesses to your accident.
  4. Taking pictures of the dangerous property conditions that caused your accident. For example, if you were injured in a supermarket because of a poorly-placed or negligently-assembled merchandise display, you should photograph the hazard.
  5. Receiving medical treatment and keeping all medical documentation associated with your injury.
  6. Retaining the services of a competent Buffalo personal injury lawyer who can help walk you through the injury claims process.

 

As long as we can prove you were hurt because a property owner either knew or should have known about unsafe property conditions, failed to fix the hazard, and your accident occurred as a result, there is a strong chance you’ll receive financial compensation. This compensation can be used to help you deal with the economic and non-economic damages caused by your accident.

Over the last five years, you have fought tooth and nail on our behalf. You have put so much time and effort into our case. I never doubted you or that I made the right decision in having you represent us.

If possible, you should do what you can to document your accident and then bring all relevant information to your initial consultation with our firm. This can include:

  • Pictures or videos of your accident
  • Witness statements/contact information
  • Your insurance information
  • The other party’s insurance information
  • Any record of correspondence you may have had with the other party’s insurance company

  • Medical documentation and bills associated with your injuries

File Today

The moment you’re injured in an accident, the clock starts ticking on your personal injury claim. New York State has a statute of limitations in place, which means that if you wait too long to bring a claim, you’ll likely permanently lose your right to do so. This is why it’s paramount that you retain the services of a competent personal injury lawyer as soon after the date of your accident as you can.
