Slip-And-Fall Injuries Can Be Severe — We Can Help

While many think slip-and-fall accidents are minor incidents, they can often result in severe injuries. At the Law Offices of Phil W. Felice PC, we can determine if you have a slip-and-fall claim, and how much you may be entitled to. These accidents often happen due to the property owner's negligence, and can result in injuries as severe as:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain damage
  • Nerve damage and permanent disability
  • Broken bones

Even if you do not have injuries this severe, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and other financial damages. We have helped numerous New York residents receive a fair financial recovery for their personal injuries.

How To Know If You Have A Slip-And-Fall Case

Not every "slip and fall" entitles you to compensation. To determine if you have a slip-and-fall claim, you have to prove a number of factors:

  1. The owner of the property owed you a duty of reasonable care
  2. The owner breached that duty
  3. An accident resulted from that breach of duty
  4. That accident resulted in damages

In many cases, like on commercial property, the business owes you a duty of reasonable care in return for your business. But you then must show that they breached that by failing to maintain the property, or that their neglect caused the accident. An experienced personal injury attorney can determine if you have a case, and how much you may be entitled to.

Slip-and-fall accidents have a statute of limitations of three years in New York. This means you have three years from the incident to file your claim and be eligible to receive compensation. If you wait too long to take action, you may be left paying for your injury yourself.
