Protecting the rights of victims when unsafe premises cause injuries

The attorneys at Rubenstein & Rynecki have more than three decades of experience helping victims of slip and fall accidents pursue the full compensation they deserve when they suffer injuries from slipping, tripping, or falling on unsafe property.

Where slip and fall accidents occur

Anyone can slip and fall in any public place in Manhattan, NYC, or elsewhere in the state when those responsible fail to maintain safe premises, including the following locations:

  • In snowy or icy parking lots or walkways
  • On improperly-tacked down carpets
  • Unmarked wet floors

In many cases, people blame themselves for accidents when the actual liability falls with property owners, managers, or others who neglect their responsibilities.

Victims can suffer severe injuries

While a fall can result in minor cuts or contusions, they also often cause serious injuries. Some examples include the following:

  • Head and brain injuries caused by impact against hard surfaces
  • Spinal injuries from the wrenching motion common with slipping
  • Injury to internal organs, particularly when victims fall against nearby objects
