Slipping Or Tripping Injuries From Dangerous Property Conditions
New York is a pedestrian city and slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents are one of the leading causes of injury. Many landlords try to get away with minimal maintenance and businesses are not always diligent about keeping walkways safe for patrons and the public. Yet commercial property owners and insurance companies often blame the victim and refuse to offer fair compensation, if any.
If you were injured in a fall-down accident, you may have no choice but to hire a lawyer to file suit. The experienced premises liability attorneys of Sullivan Brill hold property owners accountable for the full damages for the harm you have suffered.

NYC Premises Liability Attorneys
An individual or corporation that owns or leases property has a duty to maintain it in a safe condition. Our law firm has obtained many verdicts and settlements in slip-and-fall accidents by proving that property owners failed in a duty to keep their premises safe:
- Spills or debris on the floor
- Mopped or waxed floors without warning signs
- Accumulations of snow or ice
- Potholes, cracks and raised sidewalks
- Tripping hazards (torn rugs, electrical cords, boxes)
- Stairway defects and hazards
- Unleveled elevators
To bring a claim against the property owner's insurance, we must show significant injury and negligence on the part of the owners or management. Lead attorney Joseph F. Sullivan is personally involved in every case. He oversees a prompt and thorough investigation to document the neglected maintenance, code violation or dangerous condition created by the owner. We also work closely with clients to detail the extent of injury and fair damages for medical treatment, loss of income, pain and suffering, and any future needs or permanent disability.
