Our Premises Liability Services

Our skilled personal injury attorneys handle all types of premises liability claims on behalf of our wrongfully-injured clients, including those involving the following:

Recovering Compensation

The property owner, or the manager or staff of a commercial property, is expected to ensure the premises are free of safety hazards or that existing hazards are marked in a manner that warns people of the existence of that danger. When a property owner or their staff is negligent in removing or warning about safety hazards, people can get hurt. And when they are hurt, they can seek compensation. Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may be able to help you pursue compensation for:

  • Medical bills, including payment for future treatments
  • Lost income, including unrealized future earnings
  • Pain and suffering, including loss of consortium or companionship
  • Funeral and burial expenses if you lost a loved one in a fatal fall
  • Punitive damages in cases involving extreme misconduct

With more than two decades of experience, our lawyers have helped countless individuals and families obtain the full and fair compensation they deserved after serious accidents.

Don’t Trust the Insurance Company to Look Out for You

Personal injury cases are essentially insurance claims. When a person encounters unsafe property conditions that leave them injured as a result, any payment to the victim typically comes from insurance. However, insurance claims are far from automatic. In addition to those who would deny responsibility for an accident, for-profit insurers often deny legitimate claims or challenge portions of claims to lower their costs. Once an insurance company rejects a claim, the next step is to file a personal injury lawsuit asking the courts to order payment.

If you have been injured due to no fault of your own, you may have already heard from an insurance adjuster. You may even have received a settlement offer. If so, you need to understand four facts:

  • An insurance adjuster’s job is to pay as little as possible for claims.
  • The adjuster assigned to your claim has company statistics and guidelines for what to offer you in a settlement. The specifics of your case are of little concern.
  • An early settlement offer is invariably too low because it cannot account for all of your costs and losses.
  • The insurance adjuster also has company statistics that say most people will accept the settlement offer, either because they don’t understand that it is too low, or they don’t know how to push back.

The Staten Island personal injury attorneys at Zlotolow & Associates know how to push back. We won’t let insurance companies bully our clients or ignore their duties. Schedule a free consultation with our team today to learn how we can help you.
