New York Slip, Trip and Fall Attorney
While many slip and fall accidents result in minor injury, others are severe, involving broken bones, herniated disks, spinal cord injury and paralysis. A spot of spilled liquid or a tear in a carpet are seemingly trivial hazards until someone slips or trips with disastrous consequences. Victims can spend a lifetime with permanent disability or even die from an injury, such as a concussion.
The importance of seeking immediate legal advice
The sooner you seek legal help after a slip and fall, the more opportunity your personal injury lawyer has to investigate, preserve evidence and determine liability.
Proving liability in a slip and fall case can be complicated. The property owner must have been aware of the unsafe condition or must have created it. The hazard must be directly related to the resulting injury.

Skilled Case Representation
Whether the responsible party is a business or a homeowner, insurance company adjusters or their legal counsel handle most claims, not the property owner. Attorney John Fazzini has the experience and skills necessary to evaluate your case and accurately determine the compensation you should be entitled to receive. Many people try to deal with insurance companies on their own, which is generally a mistake for a number of reasons:
- They lack high-powered negotiation skills.
- They have no idea what fair compensation for their claim should be.
- They lack knowledge of their rights under premises liability law.
