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

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 questions should I ask a personal injury lawyer?
When searching for a personal injury lawyer, you should ask questions about their experience, services and results.  You only have one chance to recover and finding the right lawyer can make a big difference in the final outcome of your case, the level of services that you receive, and the amount of compensation that you are awarded.   Want more information? Read our full article here.
What should I do after a car accident?
After a car accident, you should always call for help. While you wait for help to arrive, check for injuries—both your own and those of others involved in the collision. Be sure to accept necessary medical attention from any paramedics on the scene and follow up with a health care provider as soon as possible in the days following the accident. Last but not least, connect with a lawyer––and do it fast. Get more information on what to do after an auto accident by reading our full post.
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.
How Much Can I obtain from a Car Accident Settlement?
Several factors influence the amount you might obtain from a car accident settlement. The seriousness of your injury plays a significant role in determining this amount, as it affects your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and many other types of damages. The amount of insurance coverage available plays another significant part in the outcome of your settlement. Of course, a lawyer’s experience building personal injury cases, handling insurance companies, and negotiating fair settlements is yet another important consideration in this equation. Want to learn more about car accident settlements? Read our full article here.
How does a medical malpractice lawsuit work?
Medical malpractice lawsuits usually begin with an insurance claim. Your attorney will attempt to prove your case and negotiate a settlement that covers your damages. If obtaining compensation outside of court is not an option, you can pursue a civil suit. Want to find out more? Read our full article here.
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.
How Is Fault Determined in a Car Accident?
Fault is determined by the way that the accident happened.  Did a driver go through a light or stop sign?  Was the driver speeding or driving unreasonably under the circumstances?  New York is a comparative fault state, meaning you can still recover some compensation for damages even if you are the mostly at-fault driver. Many times, the crash is a result of both drivers who share percentages of the fault.
