Unfortunately, as you may know, accidents can occur virtually any place and at any time, which is why our firm is well-versed in premises liability law as well. Hausman & Pendzick has decades of experience guiding clients through lawsuits for slip and fall accidents, some of which may include:

To recover financial compensation after being injured in an accident, you will have to fulfill the burden of proof. Simply put, this means that you are required to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. As long as you can prove as much, you should recover financial compensation for any economic and non-economic damages you’ve sustained. Some examples of economic damages are as follows:
- The cost of surgeries
- The cost of overnight stays in a hospital
- Lost wages
- The cost of rehabilitation
On the other hand, non-economic damages deal with the emotional toll an accident takes on a person, and will seek to compensate an individual for pain and suffering, emotional distress, disfigurement, the loss of enjoyment of life, and more. Our firm will fight for the maximum compensation on your behalf.
Statute of Limitations
Every state has a statute of limitations in place when it comes to filing personal injury claims. In New York State, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is, typically, three years, which means that if you wait any longer than three years from the date of your injury to take legal action, you will most likely be permanently barred from doing so.
You should also note that if you were injured on government-owned property, or property owned by a municipality, you will have far less time to file what is known as a Notice of Claim. That being said, it is always best to file your claim as soon as possible, for the longer you wait, the harder it may be to prove your personal injury claim. It’s often more difficult to contact witnesses after years, and further, it is simply more difficult to prove that the injuries you’ve sustained were the direct result of an accident you were involved in years ago. We are ready to help you today.
