Bay Ridge Slip and Fall Lawyers

If you have suffered an injury after a slip and fall, you might be entitled to monetary compensation. While you are never guaranteed a successful claim, our team of Bay Ridge slip and fall lawyers could help you maximize your chances of recovery.

Whether or not your claim will be successful depends on several factors. Your injury must occur due to the reckless actions of the property owner, and you must not have been aware of the hazard before the accident. While prevailing on these claims can be challenging, the right slip and fall attorney from our firm could assist you with getting the most from your claim.

Successful outcomes for a slip and fall claim

For the most part, there are two ways to resolve a slip and fall claim successfully. The first is through negotiating a settlement. The second is a successful trial.

Most of the time, these cases are resolved through a mutual agreement. While settlements are typical, obtaining a fair amount of compensation is not simple. Before you can resolve your claim, you must make it clear to the at-fault party that the evidence is overwhelming. With a strong case and aggressive legal team, this is possible.

Sometimes, a settlement is not an option. This could be the case if the defendant is convinced they did nothing wrong, or they can’t pay the damages. In either case, a trial is your best chance because if you can show the jury that you are entitled to compensation, the court will enter an award in your favor.

Potential compensation in a slip and fall case

If your claim is successful, the damages that could be available to you are significant. The severity of your injuries will play a significant role in the amount of compensation you will be entitled to. Some of the types available include:

  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Diminished future earnings
  • Mental anguish
