Experienced Retail Store Accident Lawyers

Under New York law, the retail tenant in commercial space, and at times the owner, has a duty to maintain the premises in a way that does not pose an unreasonable risk of injury to customers or others legally on the property. With retail space, there can be a lot of potential hazards, from goods and merchandise left on the floor to poorly or improperly maintained elevators or escalators, from shelves or displays that are overloaded to broken steps or stairways, torn carpet or other defects in flooring. If you or someone you love has been hurt in an accident at a retail store, you want a lawyer with a proven record of obtaining positive results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

Why should I contact a spinal cord injury attorney after a spinal cord accident?
The challenges that a spinal cord victim faces are ongoing and life-changing. A skilled attorney who can fight for your rights, compensation, and continuing medical expenses is invaluable.
What is life like after a spinal cord injury?
The amount of independence and movement is different for each person depending on where on the spine the injury occurred. Every person who sustains a spinal cord injury will have a different lifestyle than before the injury.
Should I get a lawyer for a car accident?
You can argue that the best time to hire a car accident lawyer is shortly after your accident happens. By hiring a car accident lawyer from our firm, you:
  • Protect yourself from insurance companies
  • Have a buffer between you and the parties who caused your accident
  • Reduce the risk of your rights being violated
The insurance company may try to get you to accept a low settlement offer. These offers come quickly but generally do not cover your long-term losses. A lawyer from our team will shield you from lowball settlement offers by fighting for the full scope of your damages. You can learn more by reading our full blog post here.
What are the chances of recovery from a spinal cord injury?
Spinal cord injuries are one of the most devastating injuries you can suffer. While there is no way to reverse the damage completely, immediate treatment and medical advances can sometimes make a significant difference in the outcome.
How Do I Make an Accident Report from a Construction Accident?
If you suffered injuries in a construction accident, you must report the accident to your foreman or employer, but there are other steps you also must take if you hope to receive compensation for your injury. First things first! If you have been hurt, seek medical care and attention immediately. If you need an ambulance, ask for one to be called. Your construction foreman may or may not be aware of your accident. Do not assume they received word of the incident. Even if you verbally told your co-worker about it, this notification will not always help you if your employer does not have actual knowledge of your construction accident. Want to learn more about how to make an accident report? Read our full article here.
Will my car accident case go to trial?
Most car accident cases settle before trial, however, you must be prepared to go all the way to jury verdict. If the defense counsel or the insurance adjuster senses that you are not ready to go the distance, they will try and settle for less than full value. Make sure your case is prepared to go all the way.
Can I Get Compensated if I Was Partly at Fault for My Car Accident?
The short answer is yes - many times, you can be compensated if you are partly at fault. Again, New York is a no-fault insurance state in which your own insurance pays for your out-of-pocket costs such as limited lost wages and medical bills up to $50,000.  When you make a claim for pain and suffering as well as certain economic loss above no-fault, the percentages of fault will be considered in your recovery. Your injury from your car accident may have a certain value, however, fault will be taken into consideration at the time of trial or settlement.
I Have Insurance, and I Have the Other Driver’s Insurance Information. Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
Unfortunately, people are not always honest, and you need a knowledgeable lawyer to help you gather evidence that you cannot get on your own. Of course, you need the accident report, but you also may need witness statements, certified weather reports,  photos from the accident scene,  driver statements,  and other evidence to establish liability.
