Personal Injury Attorney for Slip and Falls | Westchester County, NY

Were you injured by a slip or fall?

Slip and fall accidents may be widespread, but that does not diminish the seriousness of the injuries sustained by these types of accidents. Many people suffer catastrophic injuries due to poorly lit stairwells, slippery wet floors, uneven pavement or sidewalk defects, poor security measures, open excavations, or falling objects. If a property owner’s or business’s negligence caused your injuries, Attorney Stufano can help determine if you are entitled to damages.


These are just a few examples of the factors that can lead to slip and fall accidents:

  • Wet or icy pavement
  • Spilled food
  • Overflowing trash cans
  • Loose floor tiles
  • Broken steps
  • Dim lighting
  • Loose banisters
  • Bunched carpet

If conditions like those listed above contributed to your fall, you may be eligible for compensation. We can help you identify if such a factor was responsible for your accident and determine who is liable.

Understanding Premises Liability Laws in New York

Premises liability laws in New York govern the responsibilities of property owners to maintain safe conditions for visitors. Understanding these laws is crucial for determining liability in slip and fall cases. Attorney Stufano can provide insight into how these laws may apply to your situation and help establish whether the property owner failed to uphold their duty of care.


Seeking Medical Attention After a Slip and Fall Accident

After experiencing a slip and fall accident, seeking prompt medical attention is vital, even if injuries initially seem minor. Delaying medical treatment can exacerbate injuries and weaken your claim for compensation. Attorney Stufano can advise you on the importance of documenting your injuries and medical treatment to strengthen your case and ensure you receive proper compensation for your damages.

Frequently Asked Questions

Slip and fall cases can vary significantly in duration based on various factors, including the complexity of the case, the extent of injuries, and the willingness of the parties to negotiate. Some cases may settle within a few months, while others may take a year or more to reach a resolution. Attorney Stufano will work diligently to expedite the process while ensuring you receive fair compensation.

Compensation for slip-and-fall injuries may include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and, in some cases, punitive damages. Attorney Stufano will assess the details of your case to determine the damages you may be entitled to pursue.

New York follows a comparative negligence system, which means that if you are partially at fault for the accident, your compensation may be reduced proportionally to your degree of fault. However, you may still be eligible for compensation even if you share some responsibility for the accident. Attorney Stufano can evaluate your case to determine how comparative negligence laws may affect your claim.

Many slip-and-fall cases are resolved through out-of-court settlements negotiated between the parties’ attorneys and insurance companies. However, if a fair settlement cannot be reached, pursuing your case in court may be necessary. Attorney Stufano is prepared to represent you effectively in either scenario, advocating for your best interests throughout the legal process.

Stufano Law operates on a contingency fee basis, meaning you will not pay any upfront fees for legal representation. Attorney Stufano will only receive payment if he successfully secures compensation on your behalf, in which case his fee will be a percentage of the amount recovered. This arrangement allows you to pursue your claim without financial risk.
