Slip-and-Fall Accidents

New York Slip-And-Fall Injury Attorney

Slip-and-fall accidents sometimes result in bumps and bruises — and are no fun, to be sure, but often, someone who has fallen can heal and recover. In other slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents, clients suffer severe injuries resulting in lasting disabilities.

If you fell in a New York condominium lobby, office building entranceway, on stairs, on an icy ramp, or when getting on or off an elevator or escalator, contact a premises liability lawyer with the law offices of Smiley & Smiley, LLP, to schedule a free initial consultation.

Slip-And-Fall Attorneys With An Attention To Detail

An accomplished Manhattan premises liability attorney of Smiley & Smiley, LLP, can evaluate your case after an accident involving any of the following:

  • An elevator or escalator
  • A wet floor with no slip-resistant mat
  • A hallway strewn with debris
  • A floor inside a building where ice and snow has not been removed outside — resulting in a wet floor inside
  • A sidewalk without snow and ice removed, with no sand or salt or warning sign
  • At a construction site

Successful cases brought by Smiley & Smiley, LLP, on behalf of slip-and-fall injury victims have included the following:

$225,000 For Retired Superintendent Injured In Fall

Smiley & Smiley obtained a $225,000 settlement on behalf of a retired superintendent who sustained wrist and pelvic injuries when he fell down the staircase of the entry to his building. A heavy door and defective steps caused the fall.

$167,500 For Fall On Snow And Ice Resulting In Ankle Fracture

$167,500 for a woman who fell on an icy ramp while exiting her apartment building, resulting in a fractured ankle requiring surgery to insert a plate and screws.

$125,000 Trip And Fall On Unmarked Step At Beach Club

$125,000 settlement for a country club visitor who tripped over an unmarked step. She was walking to a friend's cabana at an Atlantic Beach country club when an optical illusion made it appear that there was no step. Our client fractured her ankle in that fall and required surgery.
