Bronx Slip and Fall Lawyers
A slip and fall injury can place you or a loved one in a hospital for days, weeks or even months. Daily expenses can pile up at your doorstep and your family could be burdened with the medical costs. At Cellino & Barnes, our Bronx slip and fall attorneys know how difficult the recovery process can be.
Our Bronx lawyers have decades of combined experience fighting for our clients to get the justice and compensation they deserve after an injury. In many cases, a slip and fall can be the result of a path or stairway that isn’t properly cared for and maintained.
In New York City, property and business owners may have a responsibility to make pathways and sidewalks safe and clear for those who use them. Unfortunately, some property managers do not take this responsibility seriously and it can result in severe and unnecessary injuries.
On sidewalks and public pathways, it is often a property owner’s responsibility to keep these walkways reasonably clear of snow, ice, or other debris which may pose a hazard for anyone using the path.
The Bronx slip and fall attorneys at Cellino & Barnes understand the state and local laws that protect the public from negligent property owners. After a slip and fall injury on an uncleared pathway, our lawyers will fight for you to get the best results possible.
Business owners not only have to maintain a safe environment along the storefronts, they also have a responsibility to keep the business safe and clean for patrons coming inside. When this responsibility is ignored, it can sometimes result in a dangerous slip and fall on a wet or slippery floor.
In the Bronx, customers and employees can track snow, slush, and water inside area businesses, making a wet floor extremely hazardous. A slip and fall on a wet floor can result in broken bones, concussions, and even paralysis.
At Cellino & Barnes, our lawyers handle slip and fall cases every day. Our Bronx slip and fall attorneys know each case is unique but with so many laws and ordinances in New York City, hiring an attorney with years of experience can be crucial.
Falls Among Older Adults
Each year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate millions of adults 65 and older will fall, resulting in hip fractures or head trauma. Doctors note a fall can also increase the risk of early death. Most notably, the CDC said these falls are largely preventable.
