Staten Island Slip-And-Fall Accident Attorney

Helping Victims Of Everyday Accidents

Often people think of slip-and-fall accidents as minor, slightly embarrassing occurrences, but many people are seriously injured by them. I am Michael J. Gaffney, Attorney at Law, and I help people who have been injured in slip-and-fall accidents hold negligent parties accountable, getting compensation for medical bills and lost wages, as well as pain and suffering. int 1

Property owners and businesses often have a duty to provide safe conditions for the people on their property, and when they fall short of doing that, accidents can cause broken bones, injuries to the head, neck and spine, and even fatalities. I often represent clients in cases involving the following unsafe conditions:

  • Dangerous staircases
  • Icy sidewalks
  • Wet or slippery floors

Proving negligence in a slip-and-fall case can be difficult. Often people are embarrassed, and leave the scene without filing a report or documenting the condition, only to realize later that their injuries were more serious than they originally thought. I advise individuals involved in slip-and-fall accidents to report the condition to the property owner, speak with witnesses to find out how long the condition existed and if anyone had been notified about it, and to document the condition with a photograph, if possible.

Working to Recover Full and Fair Compensation for Accident Victims

I understand that a simple accident like falling down the stairs can have serious consequences. I help clients collect the information they need about an accident to build a solid case against negligent property owners. Often, clients decide that it is in their best interests to settle a case, and I will represent them in all negotiations or settlement conferences, to help protect their rights.

I am also an experienced trial attorney, and I will provide zealous representation of clients in court. I am licensed to practice in both New York and New Jersey, and I will go the distance to help my clients get the compensation that they are entitled to.
