Premises Liability/Slip and Fall
Property owners have a legal responsibility to the safety of others. When a person is injured because of neglected maintenance or a hazardous condition, the owner can be held liable for damages.

Premises Liability Cases
We have sued retail stores, supermarkets, restaurants, apartment buildings and other commercial owners for slip and fall, trip and fall and other injuries caused by:
- Wet or slick floors (spills, squished produce, over waxing, melted snow)
- Bad lighting
- Broken handrails or guardrails
- Torn carpet and other tripping hazards
- Falling or protruding objects
- Holes or uneven pavement
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Lack of barriers or warning signs
- Sidewalk accumulations of snow and ice
We have also held owners accountable for inadequate security injuries such as rape, robbery or assault that was allowed to happen because of broken gates, lack of surveillance cameras or insufficient security staff. This includes assault and battery by employees or other patrons/residents.
Injuries from Unsafe Property Conditions
It is always best to contact an attorney right away, and even more critical when suing a governmental entity. You must give the city notice of a lawsuit within 90 days of the injury.
Proving the Owner Had a Duty to Safety
Under New York premises liability law, we must show that the owner (a) created the conditions that led to the accident or (b) received notice of a safety hazard and failed to remedy it. David J. Raimondo is an accomplished trial lawyer with 27 years of experience in these cases. He directs a prompt investigation to find witnesses, take photos of the accident site and document the injury. He personally reviews medical reports, police reports, maintenance logs, city inspection reports and other evidence.
Above all, Dave Raimondo is committed to securing full compensation for the lasting harm — medical bills and ongoing treatment (surgery, physical therapy), lost wages and pain and suffering or permanent disability.
