Important: Specific Legal Factors Affect Your Settlement in New York

You are not responsible for the losses associated with negligent property conditions under NYS civil laws. However, you are obligated to prove the facts of your case when you demand compensation above and beyond what the initial settlement offer presented entails. Several legal factors, including total monetary losses, responsible parties, and their ability to pay will affect the proper outcome of your insurance claim. The Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure addresses the following issues in every case so that clients make decisions based on facts throughout the legal process:
  • Liability: Liability assigns responsibility to an individual or business when they are legally culpable for your slip-and-fall accident. Proving liability is one of the most essential aspects of a slip-and-fall claim, as there is no case without it.
  • Damages: Damages quantify what has been lost due to your injuries. There are numerous factors to consider when calculating your losses; they primarily relate to medical costs, accident-related out-of-pocket expenses, lost wages and benefits, and pain and suffering. Our legal team will fight for every dollar owed to you.
  • Recoverability: Recoverability is an essential factor. Your slip-and-fall settlement can be affected by the available coverage limits, insurance carrier, and state law. An insurance company and its employees will always issue settlements according to opinion, so you may need a Brooklyn slip-and-fall attorney at The Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure to ensure their opinion was made in accordance with New York Insurance Law § 2601.
You do not have to face this moment alone. Liability, damages, and recoverability are all factors that you can consider with our legal team. Call us today for your free consultation so that you have the information you want and deserve when deciding on the above-referenced case-influencing elements.

NYS civil laws affect slip and fall insurance settlements

Slip and fall accidents are common, and sometimes even ignorantly comical in the eyes of people who have never experienced one. For many, the image that comes to mind is one of an unsuspecting victim walking down the street and slipping on a banana peel. But slip-and-fall accidents are no laughing matter. When injuries become as serious as paralysis and brain damage, these types of accidents are quite grim. Also, under New York Civil Practice Law § 1411, your insurance settlement will face scrutiny since you may only receive an amount equivalent to the degree of fault of the property owner. For example, if you contribute 20 percent of the fault for your accident, then you may only receive 80 percent of the total loss. The Brooklyn slip-and-fall lawyer at The Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure has helped injury victims win award that help them pay for:
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Mental anguish
  • Punitive damages
  • Wrongful death awards
  • And more
If you have been injured in a slip-and-fall accident, you know that sky-high medical bills and lost wages impact your life in the short and long term. Do you want to put your accident behind you and move on with your life? The Law Offices of Fredric S. Masure will help you work toward that goal. As an experienced lawyer, Fredric provides caring, competent representation to help you approach your case with the best possible outcome in mind.

We settle injury cases caused by negligent property conditions

Certain factors tend to contribute more than others to catastrophic slip-and-fall accidents. In New York, the prevalence of slip-and-fall accidents can be attributed to the hustle-and-bustle of the city. However, negligent property conditions should never happen, and owners, operators, and businesses should be held accountable for their fair share of your losses. The Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure will help if your injuries were caused by:
  • Broken walkways
  • Damaged stairs
  • Inadequate security
  • Missing or damaged
  • Handrails
  • Poor lighting
  • Precipitation build-up
  • Slippery surfaces
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Unsecured flooring
  • Other negligent conditions
It is critical to determine liability before filing a claim. To determine liability, it is important to establish that the property owner or occupier was negligent in maintaining a safe, hazard-free environment. If you decide to hire The Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure to represent your case, we will spend the necessary time investigating the facts and circumstances that prove information you already knew or add additional knowledge not previously known.

Slip and fall injuries are expensive to treat and manage

As a victim in a slip-and-fall accident case, you might feel as though you are to blame for the accident. On the other hand, you might know without a doubt that others were at fault. Whatever the case, the injuries you sustain from a slip-and-fall accident can change your life. These are some of the most common ones we see:
  • Back injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Brain damage
  • Neck injuries
  • pinal injuries
  • Other slip-and-fall injuries
This list is not exhaustive and can sometimes include death. When caught up in the whirlwind of a severe slip-and-fall accident, you may want to speak with an experienced Brooklyn slip-and-fall lawyer who has dealt extensively with personal injury and premises liability cases and does not fear protecting your legal rights aggressively and proactively.

Our Brooklyn slip-and-fall lawyer holds liable property owners accountable

Property owners in Brooklyn are accountable for maintaining safe premises. When they do not, our civil justice system provides slip-and-fall injury victims with the ability to recuperate all recoverable losses that they suffered. A Brooklyn slip-and-fall accident attorney on our legal team will help you assert these rights. The Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure will hold owners and operators of the following properties liable for your losses:
  • Airports
  • Banks
  • Bars
  • Gas stations
  • Government property

  • Hotels
  • Multi-family residences
  • Offices
  • Parking garages
  • Restaurants
  • Retailers

If you are injured by a hazardous property condition, the property owner is liable. Liability is critical to prove with evidence. Plus, there are additional elements that you will need to handle if the insurer is low-balling your settlement. Consider working with the Brooklyn slip-and-fall accident attorney at The Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure if you think that you need help preserving enough evidence to prove your case.

Do you have enough evidence to prove your case?

To win a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident case, you must establish negligence. Establishing negligence requires you to provide physical evidence that speaks to the facts and circumstances of your claim. Otherwise, you might not be able to recover the full amount afforded to you under the law. The Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure ensures that we present your case successfully using evidence, experts, and other elements that support your demand. A successful case involving a slip-and-fall accident must prove, with admissible evidence, the following:
  • Hazardous conditions: The party responsible for the negligent property created it or that they had known about it and had a chance to make it safe but failed to do so. We might use photographs, video, eyewitness statements, and other types of evidence to prove the existence of your claim.
  • Circumstances: Providing evidence that the culpable party either caused the condition or was aware of its existence is difficult but not impossible to do. The immediate aftermath of an event is the most crucial. We will take pictures of the condition and its surroundings as well as obtain copies of policy manuals to check for internal compliance.
  • Opposing claims: It is highly unlikely that the responsible parties will acknowledge that they created the negligent condition or were aware of it, but it is possible. The skilled legal team at The Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure knows how to communicate with all parties to protect what you deserve throughout the process and will argue against false or erroneous counterclaims of liable parties.
Every slip-and-fall case is unique, but preserving crucial evidence can make or break your case. In summation, here are some of the most crucial pieces of evidence you and our legal team will preserve so that you can focus on your health:
  • Correspondence
  • Documentation
  • Expert testimony
  • Medical bills
  • Pay stubs
  • Photographs
  • Physician’s notes
  • Police reports
  • Video
  • Witnesses
  • Your actions
  • Other forms of evidence
NO UPFRONT COST: It can become expensive to investigate, research, and preserve evidence, far surpassing what most people can afford. As such, The Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure operates on contingency fees, meaning that we do not get paid for the use of our time and legal resources unless you win your case. Otherwise, you owe us nothing for our work.
