What To Expect From Our Team

When you suffer a slip and fall injury, your financial recovery is often in the hands of powerful insurance companies that prioritize profits over people. Insurance adjusters employ a variety of unfair tactics to manipulate injury victims into accepting a settlement far below what they deserve. We won’t let them get away with it.

With Chopra & Nocerino on your side, you can rest assured that your case will receive the undivided care and attention it deserves. When you turn to our Brooklyn slip and fall attorneys for help, we’ll handle the legal complexities while you focus on your recovery.

We will investigate the accident to determine whether the property owner is liable for failing to maintain safe premises. We will also gather all available evidence to demonstrate how the property owner’s negligence led to your injuries by failing to repair hazardous conditions or warn visitors of their presence. Important evidence may include things like:

Our attorneys will also calculate the full value of your damages and negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf in pursuit of maximum compensation. If the property owner’s insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement, we have what it takes to argue your case in court.

Elements of a Strong Brooklyn Slip and Fall Claim

Property owners have a legal duty to maintain safe premises for lawful visitors. This applies to commercial property owners, government entities, and private households. When someone is hurt because the owner failed to uphold their duty, the injured party may have grounds for a slip and fall claim. Common causes of slip and fall claim include:

  • Failing to maintain sidewalks, driveways, and parking lots.
  • Not fixing broken or uneven flooring.
  • Neglecting to put up warning signs for hazardous conditions.
  • Not fixing unsafe railings, stairwells, and elevators.
  • Ignoring complaints about hazardous conditions.
  • Not providing adequate lighting for parking lots, stairwells, and hallways.

Time Limits for Filing a Slip and Fall Accident Claim in Brooklyn, NY

If you have a slip and fall claim in Brooklyn, it’s essential to act quickly. The New York personal injury statute of limitations is generally three years. This means you have three years from the date of your slip and fall to file a lawsuit against the responsible party.

Certain exceptions can shorten or extend the deadline. However, in all cases, your claim will most likely be dismissed in court if you miss it. Therefore, it’s crucial to consult an experienced slip and fall attorney in Brooklyn as soon as possible to figure out the correct deadline and ensure your case is filed on time.
