New York Trip-And-Fall Accident Lawyers

A slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident can be a life-changing event.

At Apicella & Schlesinger, we have represented many people injured due to property owner negligence over the past 40-plus years.

Turn To A Caring Legal Team That Will Promptly Evaluate Your Serious Claim

Premises liability lawsuits are very challenging to prove and win in New York, but we have succeeded with these claims on many occasions. Our accomplished personal injury attorneys look hard at the injuries that resulted and at all relevant circumstances, including:

  • Whether evidence exists that the property owner knew of a hazardous condition and should have repaired it or posted a warning
  • Whether any witness testimony or video footage is available to support the victim's account of the fall and what caused it
  • Whether insurance coverage applies and is sufficient to justify pursuing a lawsuit
