Premises Liability Lawsuit Brooklyn, NY
Premises liability injury claims in New York City have become increasingly difficult to win. Often known as slip-and-falls, these types of cases require documentation of the unsafe property conditions that caused your injury as well as proof that the conditions were the direct cause of your injuries and losses. You must also demonstrate that the property owner was aware of the unsafe condition, but took no action to repair or replace the sidewalk, steps or carpet.
Trust a Firm That Has Been Successful
Our law firm, Kahn Gordon Timko & Rodriques, P.C., has been handling these types of cases since our founding in 1998. We have successfully represented hundreds of clients injured in slips, trips and falls throughout Brooklyn and Greater New York. We make sure our clients’ rights are protected during the legal process as we build strong cases for compensation for expenses, lost wages and other costs of a slip-and-fall accident.
Our Brooklyn premises liability lawsuit attorneys are led by senior partners with more than 50 years of personal injury experience. We draw upon their knowledge and the resources of the entire firm as we work to help clients win their cases. Our goal is always the same: to recover the maximum amount of compensation to which the client is entitled. Over the years, we have successfully held private property owners, the city of New York and business owners liable for the injuries caused by their negligence.
Building a Strong Case Following Injuries Resulting From Dangerous Premises
Whether your injury occurred in Brooklyn or elsewhere in New York, the challenge is to find and preserve compelling evidence of negligence. That is where a client can help; as soon as practical, he or she should document all the details of the accident, including location, time, details of the unsafe condition and contact information of any individuals who may have seen the accident. Take photographs. If your injuries prevent you from performing these tasks, ask a friend or family member to help you. Time is of the essence.
Be prepared for a fight. The lawyers for the property owner’s insurance company will challenge your credibility and question your integrity unless you can show the cause and effect of the unsafe condition.
