Huntington Slip Trip & Fall Lawyers
Skilled Slip, Trip, and Fall Attorney Serving Huntington, NY
Property owners must maintain their property in a reasonably safe manner. Should a property owner fail to do this and you suffer an injury, that property owner may be liable to you for the damages that you suffer such as medical bills, lost wages, out of pocket expenses, mental anguish and pain and suffering. But before you can collect any money from the property owner’s insurance there are specific facts that must be proven. First, it must be established that a dangerous condition existed. Then there needs to be proof that the owner either knew or should have known about the dangerous condition. Next it must be proven that the dangerous condition caused your fall. Finally, it must be established that you suffered physical or financial damages from the fall. Our Huntington Slip Trip & Fall Lawyers can help you navigate this difficult process.

How Much Is My Case Worth?
The value of any case is based upon several factors. This includes accident related economic expenses such as medical bills, lost wages and any other out of pocket expenses directly related to your accident. Also, you are entitled to receive non-economic losses such as pain and suffering and mental anguish. At Palermo Law, our seasoned Huntington slip and fall attorneys are able to use their experience to accurately assess all of your damages and come up with a figure that fairly compensates you for all of your losses.
Never Deal Directly With The Insurance Company
Often after an accident the insurance company of the responsible party will reach out to you offering assistance. Don’t be fooled by these friendly overtures. The main purpose of these phone calls is to gather information in order to protect themselves from a potential claim. It is never in your best interests to cooperate with an insurance company investigation. Further, it is important to understand that you have no obligation to talk to them. We always recommend that you refuse to give a statement and contact a lawyer immediately.
Services We Perform:
- Identifying all potential sources of insurance
- Complete investigation including gathering all evidence such as scene photos, videos, witness statements, accident reports and medical records
- Complete all insurance paperwork and conduct all insurance company communications
- Negotiate a settlement in your case and collect the settlement funds and distribute them to you
- Litigate your case in court if an out of court settlement cannot be reached. We will initiate a lawsuit, conduct all discovery and even try the case if necessary. While only a small percentage of cases go to trial, we are always ready to do so on your behalf should an insurance company refuse to pay a fair settlement.
No Win No Fee Promise
At Palermo Law our lawyers are so confident in their skills that we offer a no win no fee promise. That means that unless we recover money for you, there is no fee. If, and only if we win do we get paid a percentage of what we win, which is one third of the total amount recovered (33%).
