When frequenting your favorite areas of Westchester, you expect to enjoy your time and have no worry that there could be potential hazards awaiting you. Property owners are expected to keep their grounds safe for guests and visitors. This applies to public and private owners equally. For example, if you were injured in a park because of a dangerous condition and that park was owned by the county or the state, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Dangerous conditions could include wet floors, debris or garbage on a floor, poorly maintained fields, holes that should have been filled in, or a failure to warn of a hazardous condition like broken glass or metal pipes. The ways you could be injured might include a slip and fall, a trip and fall, or direct impact with a dangerous condition.
In the case of a publicly owned property, it is important to know the law. Your Westchester Slip and Fall Attorney would know that a proper investigation must be performed. The lawyer would also know to place the responsible governmental agency on notice. This notice is required by law and gives the city, county or state agency six (6) months to investigate your claim. If you file suit before the 6 months has expired your personal injury lawsuit would likely be dismissed by the court.
If the property owner is a private person, company or corporation than you do not need to wait 6 months to file a lawsuit. However, the Slip and Fall Lawyers serving Westchester will always fully investigate the facts surrounding your slip or trip and fall. Wolfson & Leon only represents injured people who have valid cases. When we complete our investigation and make a determination of who is responsible, then we pursue that person or company to get you the full compensation allowed under the law.
