Recovering From A Fall On Uneven Ground
We do not often think about the ground we walk on, but it has more influence on us than we may expect. All it takes is a small patch of uneven footing to cause a fall that results in injuries with a lifetime of consequences. When something like this happens, the property owner is likely liable for the consequences, but holding them accountable won’t be as easy as you may wish.
At Godosky & Gentile, P.C., we know how to make sure that property owners are held accountable for the negligence that led to your accident. When a business may be responsible, we are not afraid of the major fights that can come from their large legal teams and aggressive insurance companies.
What May Have Caused Your Fall
Before you file a claim against someone for your injuries, we take the time to learn all of the event’s important details. The nature of the accident can determine who is ultimately liable for your injury costs. Common causes from a fall can include:
- Poor maintenance
- Lack of repair
- Poor construction
- Unattended holes
While a property owner may be liable for your injuries, the construction company that built the stairway in the first place may actually be liable because of their inexperienced crew. Our job as your legal representation is to do whatever possible to maximize the compensation you receive, and we have decades of combined experience to see that goal become a reality.
Let Us Handle Your Claim
A personal injury that someone else caused shouldn’t cause you to pay for your medical bills, lost income and other expenses. Let us help you pursue the compensation you deserve, and take the first step in doing so by calling 212-742-9700 or emailing us here to schedule your initial consultation. The sooner you reach out to us, the sooner we can begin building your claim.
