Slip & Fall Accident Lawyers in Queens
Property Owners Should Maintain Reasonably Safe Grounds

In Queens, property owners have an obligation to maintain reasonably safe grounds for visitors. This includes the inside and outside of their properties, even the sidewalk out front. Clearing snow and ice, fixing defective flooring, and routinely inspecting for hazards are examples of steps Queens property owners should take to prevent serious slip and fall accidents from occurring. Unfortunately, not all owners and managers uphold their duty.

Did you slip, trip, or fall because of an unforeseen hazard? Silbowitz, Garafola, Silbowitz, Schatz & Frederick, L.L.P. can help. You may be entitled to financial compensation if the property owner or manager was negligent in maintaining reasonably safe grounds. Our Queens slip and fall accident attorneys can investigate immediately to see what occurred and how to seek fair damages on your behalf. We have recovered over $70 million for our clients, and we are ready to seek the results you need.

Potential Causes of Queens Slip & Fall Accidents

A slip and fall accident in Queens may be caused by one or more of various hazards, such as:

  • Snow or ice
  • Missing or defective handrails
  • Elevator uneven with floor
  • Defective escalators
  • Objects in walkways
  • Poor lighting
  • Defective or uneven stairs
  • Defective flooring/carpeting
  • Poorly maintained sidewalks

When we identify the hazard that caused you to fall, we can determine whether it should have been prevented or repaired. We can determine whether the property owner should have placed a warning sign if he or she could not repair it immediately. There are many different rules and regulations to take into account, but we have over 20 years of experience and know the ins and outs of legislation and case law that applies to property owner liability for slips, trips, and falls. When we expose negligence, our attorneys can help you recover money for your medical bills, emotional trauma, lost earnings, and possibly much more.
