Slips, Trips and Falls

Property owners are required to provide safe and secure premises for occupants and visitors. When maintenance on stairways, sidewalks and other walking surfaces is overlooked or not properly performed, people can sustain injury in slip, trip and fall accidents.

The firm is experienced in the areas of excessive force, arrests without probable cause and malicious prosecution.

Injuries from Dog Bites or Attacks

In New York, dogs are generally allowed "one free bite," but once owners are aware of their dog's propensity to bite, they are on notice. The firm represents adults and children alike who have suffered injuries such as lacerations, scarring, infections, emotional trauma and psychological damage after being bitten or attacked by a dog.

Were You Injured in a Slip and Fall Accident?

Property owners have the duty to maintain reasonably safe conditions on their premises for the protection of occupants and visitors. Both public entities (such as the MTA and the City of New York) and private property owners (such as landlords, retail store owners and corporations) have this responsibility, and if you are hurt as a result of their failure to live up to this duty, you deserve just compensation for your loss. These entities are also responsible for repairing or shovelling walking surfaces in a timely manner and warning people of possible dangers.

Tom Guccione is well-versed in the many facets of slip and fall law. He handles claims arising from:

  • Falls due to defective or broken stairways and railings
  • Trips on debris
  • Slips on ice
  • Sidewalk and roadway defects such as potholes, cracks and uneven surfaces

Whether you have been injured in a retail shop, grocery store, apartment building, or on a city sidewalk or road, Mr. Guccione has the experience you need to effectively pursue your claim and assert your best interests with the insurance company at every stage, whether in investigating facts, settlement negotiations or trial.

Premises Liability

Brooklyn, New York Premises Liability Attorney Representing Clients in All Five Boroughs

By taking steps to ensure the building is secure and safe, whether by making repairs or by clearly warning of hazards on the premises, property owners can keep people out of harm's way.

When a property owner's negligence results in injury to a tenant or guest, the injured person may have a claim against the owner. Since 1983, The Law Office of Tom Guccione has provided knowledgeable, responsive and dedicated legal help to injured people pursuing premises liability claims.

Knowledge, Experience and a Client-Centered Focus

Tom Guccione has been practicing law for over 33 years, with the last 28 of those years dedicated to protecting injured people in all five boroughs of New York, including Brooklyn. Fully committed to ensuring each and every client obtains maximum compensation for their injuries, Mr. Guccione emphasizes skillful legal representation combined with courteous and respectful client service.

The negligence or wrongdoing of property owners can result in a wide range of injuries, including:

  • Physical attacks - Landlords and other property owners can take many steps to ensure the safety of a building's occupants. However, when locks are not in proper working condition, security cameras do no work, lighting in common areas is inadequate, broken windows are left unrepaired and security guards are not performing their jobs properly, innocent people can be robbed, assaulted, and even raped.
  • Elevator accidents - An elevator accident can be the result of mislevelling, where the elevator does not stop level with the floor and the individual may be caused to fall upon exiting. An elevator accident can also occur when the lift does not stop on the ground floor or basement and continues plummeting to the bottom of the elevator shaft, causing injury.
  • Slips and falls - Slips, trips and falls can result in serious head injuries, back injuries and neck injuries. These types of injuries could have been prevented by keeping stairways and other walking surfaces in good working condition, free from debris, liquids or other hazardous agents.
  • Ceiling and wall collapses - When ceilings and walls give way and collapse due to water leaks or other hazards that go unaddressed, serious injury can result.

If you have been injured because of a property owner's negligence, turn to Tom Guccione for responsive, committed and knowledgeable guidance on your premise liability matter.

To schedule your free consultation with Mr. Guccione, call 718-596-4184 or fill out an online contact form.
