Falls Are a Common, Preventable Cause of Injury and Death
If you suffered fall injuries in Lynbrook, you might have a case against the property owner or those tasked with its upkeep. Property owners and those responsible for private homes, businesses, public property, and other spaces have a duty to use reasonable care and ensure their property remains in a safe condition for those who visit.
Falls happen every day. Common causes include slips, trips, stumbles, falls from a height, poor maintenance, spills, and items left in the walkway. When a landowner fails to maintain their property and something happens, that landowner may be legally accountable for the visitor’s injuries.
Some falls only cause contusions and lacerations that heal in a short amount of time, but they can also be much more serious. This is especially true for seniors. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 800,000 people are admitted to hospitals every year for fall injury treatment nationwide. About 300,000 of these are seniors over the age of 64 who suffer hip fractures.
Falls are also a top cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). This type of injury may occur when the victim strikes their head on the ground, floor, or another surface following a fall.
TBIs and spinal cord injuries, as well as broken bone injuries, are especially common in falls from a height. They may occur on stairs, balconies, decks, or other elevated areas with weak, broken, or missing railings.

Let Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. Help You Seek Financial Recovery
It can be difficult to prove that the property owner or another liable party was aware of the hazard that caused your fall or reasonably should have taken action to prevent your injuries. This is a key part in proving they acted negligently and are, therefore, liable for your fall. A slip and fall accident lawyer serving Lynbrook from Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. can help with this task by gathering evidence and working with experts to prove your case and document exactly what happened.
We represent our clients’ best interests throughout our investigation into their case, during the claims and negotiations process, and at trial (if necessary). We are available to answer our clients’ questions and address any pressing concerns while we work to build, present, and argue a strong case on their behalf.
Recoverable Damages May Include More than Your Medical Bills
Often, when slip and fall victims consider the losses they incurred, they only consider the cost of their medical care, such as an ambulance ride to the hospital, emergency department treatment, hospitalization, surgery, therapy, and rehabilitation. However, medical care is only the beginning of the expenses and losses for many fall victims.
Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. helps our clients document a wide range of expenses and losses. We also assign values to possible future expenses and things like reduced earning ability caused by permanent injuries.
We may also include intangible losses in the total fair value of our client’s claim. These are non-economic losses that we put a monetary price on, such as pain and suffering, stress and distress, reduced quality of life, and more.

Time Limits Exist for Taking Legal Action in a Slip and Fall Case
It is not always possible to reach a settlement out of court, so slip and fall cases sometimes go to trial. Taking a case to trial allows our trial attorneys to present the evidence we gathered to the judge and jury and ask for an award to cover your damages.
Under New York Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP) §214, there is a strict timeline we have to follow to protect our clients’ right to take legal action. This law generally gives slip and fall or trip and fall victims three years to file a personal injury lawsuit. There are, however, exceptions to this. The deadline may be significantly shorter when the fall occurs in a public park or on another municipal property, for example.
