At Basch & Keegan LLP, our slip and fall injury accident attorneys in Kingston represent slip, trip, and fall injury accident victims in claims arising from dangerous or hazardous property conditions. As an injury-only law firm with 30 plus years of experience, we know how to deal with insurance companies and at-fault parties, using proven tactics to receive maximum settlement offers on behalf of our clients.
Property owners—including private residences, grocery stores, doctor’s offices, etc.—tenants and any other person who has a duty to maintain a safe premise may hold liability whenever someone suffers an injury on their grounds. It’s these parties who must inspect their premises to ensure that nothing is broken, torn, or otherwise causes a significant hazard that can cause injury. Unfortunately, we often see injuries due to broken stairs, collapsing decks, and failed railing.
Proving liability in a slip and fall accident case requires you and your legal team to show that the owner of the property (or other party responsible for maintenance) was aware of the hazard, yet they did nothing to fix the issue or warn legal visitors of the issue. As a result, you or someone else can suffer a significant injury, making the property owner or other responsible party negligent.
Slip, trip, and fall accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury, only after automobile accidents.
Our team has significant experience representing individuals in the following situations:
Grocery store negligence: This can include any injuries resulting from unsafely stocked items, missing warning signs regarding potential dangers, and items on the floor (including water) that can cause you to slip and fall.
Property accidents: This can include residential or commercial property in which uneven pavement, lifted sidewalks, fallen trees and branches, or other hazards create a problem for individuals.
Apartment building problems: This can include any problem involving broken and failed handrails, stairway dangers, items sitting on the stairs, or problems on individual balconies (failed railings).
Commercial or federal buildings: This can include any issues involving defective or failed elevators, escalators, electrical wiring, or lifted carpet.
It’s essential to your success to work with a personal injury attorney soon after the slip and fall accident occurs. It’s easy for property owners to try and work fast to fix the hazard that has led to your injury, so it becomes of the utmost priority to act with urgency when getting evidence.

If you have suffered injury during a slip and fall incident, you are likely wondering how much you are capable of obtaining from a settlement.
