Unfortunately, many slips, trips, and fall injuries do not occur by chance. Often, slip-and-fall accident victims suffer injuries that may have been preventable. If you slipped and fell on a poorly maintained property with hazardous conditions, you may have grounds to pursue a claim for compensation against the negligent property owner.
After suffering a severe injury in a slip-and-fall accident, you need an experienced attorney on your side. The skilled attorneys at the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe understand the complexities of New York State law and will apply their expertise to your case. We have a proven record of successfully achieving favorable outcomes for our clients and helping them move forward after an accident. When you retain our services, your attorney will advocate aggressively on your behalf to help protect your rights and interests.
A Lawyer Can Help You Establish Fault After a Slip-and-Fall
One of the most important ways your lawyer can help is by establishing liability for your injuries and other damages. Your lawyer must prove that the property owner breached their duty of care to keep their premises safe and their negligence resulted in your injury. A few of the ways a skilled attorney can help you establish liability include the following:
- Conducting an independent investigation into your case
- Collecting evidence to establish liability
- Interviewing eye-witnesses
- Partnering with an accident and medical experts to support your claim
While you may be tempted to file a slip-and-fall accident claim on your own, your lawyer will have the skills and resources to protect your interests effectively. At the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, we are committed to using our 100 years of combined experience to thoroughly establish liability and hold negligent property owners accountable for their actions.
A Lawyer Can Prove Your Losses and the Value of Your Claim
Proving the extent of your injuries and other losses is not as simple as you may think. Successful claims require extensive documentation of your medical bills, lost wages, and other accident-related expenses. Your lawyer can help you organize and make sense of these documents, so they paint a coherent picture of your injuries. An experienced lawyer will not just look at your current losses but also the losses you may experience in the future due to your injury. This thorough approach can help ensure you are compensated for the total value of your damages.
