Seeking Injury Compensation From Property Owners
Whether you are on private property visiting a friend, staying the night at a hotel or doing some shopping at a store, the property owner has a responsibility to ensure you have a safe visit. When these owners fail to meet that responsibility and you suffer a serious fall or other premises liability injury, they need to be accountable for their actions or inactions that caused your suffering.
At Angiuli & Gentile, LLP, our New York attorneys can help you hold them accountable. We have been representing clients throughout Staten Island for more than 30 years. We know how to handle these cases to maximize the compensation you receive for your injuries, no matter how bad they may be.
The Catastrophic Injuries Of Premises Liability
Most people assume a slip-and-fall injury only results in some scrapes and bruises, but the consequences can be much more severe. Depending on where an accident took place or if the victim was elderly or a child, the catastrophic injuries of these accidents can include:
- Broken bones – Falling onto a hard surface or the corner of a countertop can easily result in lifelong consequences of a fracture.
- Traumatic brain injuries – A fall that causes a blow to the head can mean a victim suffers permanent memory issues, mobility issues and even personality changes.
- Nerve damage – Many parts of the nervous system are vulnerable to even minor impacts, the spinal column especially. A sudden blow to the wrong part of this system can mean a victim suffers numbness, pain or paralysis for a lifetime.
- Wrongful death – A serious fall can also result in the worst consequence: death. Whether the victim suffers a fall down a flight of stairs and passes away on-site or succumbs to their injuries later on, any accident has the potential for this disastrous outcome.
Premises liability injuries can happen due to a loose carpet, unsecured handrail, uneven walkway, unattended spills or ice formations, or inattentive security guards. No matter what caused your fall, we are here to help make you as whole as possible after your accident.
