Slip-and-Fall lawyer new york

When Will A Defendant Normally Be Held Liable in a Slip-and-Fall Case? The outcome of these lawsuits usually depends on whether the plaintiff has successfully proved that the defendant was negligent and at least partially responsible for all the injuries sustained. When our law firm first considers representing a new client, we carefully review the basic facts of the underlying case to determine if the defendant acted negligently. We then check to see exactly when the defendant became aware of the fall hazard and if that person took any action to remedy the situation. Falls occur often in the workplace and while...

Daycare Negligence and Abuse in NYC – What Can You Do?

Daycare Neglect and Injuries - Frekhtman & Associates Injury Attorneys

Far too often, parents don’t realize that their children are attending negligent daycare centers until signs of harm appear. A child may suddenly develop odd physical injuries or simply start acting withdrawn. Parents may then probe deeper into the background of the daycare workers and ask if the center has corrected all known healthcare or regulatory violations. Since young children often feel timid about reporting any odd behavior by the adults taking care of them, parents must obtain multiple, strong references – whenever possible – before choosing any one daycare center. If your child has been seriously neglected or abused in a...

While a painter’s work may not sound very dangerous, major safety risks exist since these workers are often climbing up ladders and standing on scaffolding each day. They must also regularly work with toxic substances and lift heavy tools and equipment. Great stamina, strength and dexterity are required for this work. On an average day, most painters are reaching up, bending down or kneeling while applying coats of paint to various surfaces. They must also carry heavy cans of paint to work sites and wear respirators to make sure they can breathe properly near dangerous fumes. Although many tasks are completed...

Glazier Accident - Injury Lawyer

New York is among the five states that currently employ the most glaziers in the construction industry. It ranks fourth, right behind California, Texas and Florida – and just ahead of Washington. Although we often notice the many handsome and protective windows that glaziers install in skyscrapers, few of us are aware of the many professional skills they must master before being qualified to ply their physically demanding trade. Besides mounting windows, glaziers are also often asked to design and build skylights, glass doors and indoor paneling. During their apprenticeships, they must learn to read basic building blueprints and handle various...

Serious New York City Stairway, Ramp, Sidewalk and Parking Lot Injuries

New York City residents constantly suffer serious injuries while driving in parking lots. They also get hurt when using stairways, ramps and sidewalks. One major medical journal article states that at least one million Americans injure themselves annually on staircases. Although roughly 50% of all homes have staircases, many of these accidents also occur in the workplace. While many people injured on stairs are much older, two-thirds of those who seek emergency room treatment for stairway injuries are between the ages of eleven and sixty. Stairway accidents often occur because people are distracted -- or because of design hazards. In some...

Trip & Fall Accident Attorneys

Is it possible for an athlete who engages in extreme sports such as rock climbing or extreme mountain biking to sustain broken bones from a sidewalk accident? While this seems improbable, it can happen because of the person's expectations says Arkady Frekhtman, one of the trip & fall accident attorneys at the F&A injury law firm in New York City. When using a sidewalk, it's natural to assume that it's a perfectly safe activity. Walking on sidewalks is not an extreme sport and shouldn't require the same intense focus of spotting fall hazards. It's a reasonable expectation that it's safe to...

New York Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer Discusses Preventing Stairway Accidents

Preventing New York Stairway Accidents Each year, far too many Americans suffer serious and sometimes fatal stairway accidents at work and at home says a New York slip & fall accident lawyer at the F&A injury law firm. In fact, one Pediatrics medical journal study reported that close to 100,000 children each year visit emergency rooms due to staircase injuries. That means that almost every six minutes, a child is being treated in an ER in this country for injuries incurred during a stairway accident. Of course, many more stairways accidents are never even reported, regardless of whether they occur on the...
