Reclaim Your Power After A Personal Injury
Injuries From Dangerous Property Conditions
When property owners cut corners to save money, they put patrons, tenants, employees and the general public at risk of injury. Under New York premises liability law, owners may be obligated to pay damages if their dangerous property caused you harm.
Friedman Sanchez, LLP, represents people injured in falling accidents and in other ways that trace to the negligence of property owners. Our Brooklyn personal injury firm has a long record of notable recoveries in cases throughout the five boroughs of New York City, on Long Island and beyond.

We Hold Businesses And Property Owners Accountable
Recovering personal injury damages in a premises liability case requires a dangerous condition that caused a lasting injury, and evidence that the owner created the hazard, was notified of the danger or should have known of it through regular upkeep.
We have brought successful claims against owners of retail stores, supermarkets, bars and restaurants, apartment buildings, parking facilities, and other commercial properties, as well as against the New York City Housing Authority for dereliction of public housing complexes. Our lawyers also pursue companion claims against construction contractors or property management companies.
How Do Unsafe Premises Harm People?
Examples of premises cases include:
- Slip-and-falls (spills, leaks, slippery floors)
- Trip-and-falls (uneven pavement, debris in the walkway)
- Falling merchandise in big-box stores
- Falling debris (crumbling facades, ice chunks)
- Stairwell falls (lighting, broken steps, uneven risers)
- Falls on snow and ice (negligent snow removal)
- Elevator accidents
- Building collapse or explosion
Most premises accidents are completely preventable. Our experienced trial attorneys conduct a prompt and thorough investigation to identify the negligence, from building code or fire code violations to neglected maintenance or willful disregard of a known dangerous property condition.
We know that even a simple slip-and-fall can cause serious and disabling injuries, from back injury and head trauma to fractures and torn ligaments. Our legal team pursues full compensation for past and future medical care, loss of income, any permanent injury or disfigurement, and pain and suffering.
