Each borough of New York City is unique. Along with their particular benefits, each presents its own opportunities for slip, trip and fall accidents. From the northernmost tip of the Bronx to the lower end of Staten Island, the New York City slip and fall lawyers at Banville Law have provided trusted legal guidance to NYC’s residents for decades.
The NYC personal injury team at Banville Law offers expert counsel to residents throughout New York City. We handle cases of “premises liability,” in which New York’s property owners are held accountable for accidents occurring on their properties. If premises are not maintained properly, and serious slip and fall accidents take place, NYC’s property owners can be held liable for a victim’s injuries.
Many slip and fall claims end before ever seeing the inside of a courtroom - in valuable settlements. We seek to strengthen insurance claims in order to secure the maximum compensation for our clients. And if an insurance company’s offer is unacceptable, we will aggressively pursue litigation in a personal injury lawsuit.
Every slip and fall accident case is different, and every client deserves personalized attention. In our many years of distinguished legal service, we have become uniquely sensitive to the particular issues facing each of New York City’s five boroughs.
As New York City’s economic headquarters, many slip, trip and fall accidents in Manhattan occur in office buildings. At particular risk are those Manhattan residents who work or live in the borough’s many high-rise buildings. Manhattan is also home to many governmental properties, and the NYC personal injury lawyers at Banville Law are prepared to pursue compensation directly from governmental agencies.
In recent decades, Brooklyn has seen an unprecedented expansion. Along with cleaner streets and boutique shopping, Brooklyn’s revitalization has meant a boom in rental housing. Slip and fall accidents in Brooklyn commonly occur in apartment buildings and condominiums, on broken stairs and defective elevators.
Following close on Brooklyn’s heels, Queens has seen recent growth in the development of properties. New restaurants and bars, rental housing, spas, gyms and health clubs - Queens’ new breed of upscale establishments creates more potential for slip and fall accidents in Queens.
Although the Bronx was long a derelict borough, recent attempts at revitalization have been largely successful. New affordable housing, apartment complexes, and businesses have increased the average Bronx resident’s quality of life tremendously. But with new properties come old dangers - if the borough’s property owners fail to maintain safe premises, they put residents in danger of slip and fall accidents in the Bronx.
Chronically underserved by New York City’s governmental agencies, Staten Island’s properties may be left in disrepair. Crumbling sidewalks, defective subway platforms, and particularly brutal weather create numerous opportunities for slip and fall accidents on Staten Island.
Injured in a New York City slip and fall accident? You may be entitled to compensation. Many accident victims in NYC are forced to deal with aggressive insurance companies alone, or worse, pay for medical expenses out of pocket. But with effective legal guidance, victims can pressure insurance carriers into offering fair compensation or seek justice in a court of law.
