New York law imposes upon businesses an obligation to protect the public from unsafe conditions on the business’s premises. If a business fails to exercise the legally required duty of care and you are injured as a result, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. At Peter J. Schaffer, our attorneys employ a practical, professional approach to help our clients seek full and fair compensation for their past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.
In order for a business to be found responsible for your accident, evidence must be shown to prove that a dangerous condition on the business premises caused your injury and that at least one of the following is true:
Depending on state law, a property owner or manager may owe a different standard of care to different classes of visitors such as business visitors or social guests. We help you understand your chances of recovery based on the specific facts of your case.
Our attorneys consult with knowledgeable and respected experts while preparing your case. With the assistance of physicians, chiropractors and forensics engineers, our attorneys can pursue the best possible settlements. At trial, these experts are available to deliver clear, professional testimony so the jurors can understand the cause of the accident and the extent of your injuries.
By immediately consulting an attorney, you can help ensure the collection of valuable evidence. The lawyers at Peter J. Schaffer thoroughly investigate every case and often visit the premises where the accident occurred to gather crucial evidence, photograph the accident scene and interview witnesses. With significant delay, you could forfeit your right to file a claim by missing the deadline set by New York law.
