Slip & Fall Accidents

I Slipfallaccidents

Victims of slip-and-fall accidents may have the right to pursue a claim against the owner of the property where the accident occurred. These are referred to as premises liability claims.

I am Larry Trank, an attorney with more than 20 years of courtroom experience handling slip-and-fall accident cases in New Paltz, Ulster County and throughout the Hudson Valley region of New York. I will stand up to the negligent property owner and help you pursue fair compensation. The process begins with a free initial consultation.

Compensation For All Falling Accident Victims

I handle cases involving slip-and-fall injuries that resulted from:

  • Slipping and falling on a wet floor or slippery surface
  • Slipping and falling on snow or ice that has not been cleared from sidewalks
  • Tripping and falling on boxes or other objects in walkways
  • Tripping and falling on uneven or broken pavement and concrete
  • Falling as a result of poor or inadequate lighting

These accidents may occur in businesses such as grocery stores, retail stores, malls, hotels, restaurants and bars. They may also occur at apartment buildings.

Report Your Accident

If you have been hurt as a result of a fall, report the injury to the property owner as quickly as possible so there is a record of your accident. You should also take photographs of the dangerous or hazardous condition before the property owner attempts to correct the condition. Preserve as much evidence as possible and discuss the case with me immediately.

Preserving evidence is important in these cases, because they can be challenging. The property owner may argue that he or she did not know about the condition that caused the slip-and-fall accident, whether it was a spill, a leak or something else. The property owner will say that he or she had no time to remedy the situation and prevent the accident.

By gathering evidence, my goal is to prove that the property owner knew about or should have known about the hazard. I will attempt to obtain security videotapes showing the hazard. I will gather witness statements. I will do everything necessary to build a solid case designed to get you the compensation you need to recover.

Contingency Fee Representation

You pay no attorney fees unless I am able to obtain a settlement or verdict on your behalf.
