Most people in the Bronx live in apartments. In fact, according to our research, about 80-percent of Bronx residents rent apartments. That means there is a hazard that affects people the moment they walk into a building, whether it’s a tenement or high rise, public or privately owned: the building lobby.
And it’s not only apartment buildings. Office and other commercial or governmental buildings that have large lobbies also present a hazard for a slip and fall or trip and fall accident.
The Bronx personal injury firm of Feiner & Lavy knows the danger that can lurk the moment someone sets foot inside the door of a building with a lobby. We know that there is a laundry list of hazards that await, like a slippery floor from people tracking in water from the outside, a spill creating a slick that can lead to a nasty fall, bunched up runners that weren’t properly secured, errant extension cords, or packages or other things cluttering a passageway.
If you’ve been hurt in a fall in a building lobby, the lawyers and investigators from Feiner & Lavy will find the reason for your accident, the subsequent injuries and long-term repercussions that were a result of your fall. We will establish a solid case that will seek the kind of justice that you and your family both need and deserve.
When you crash down on a hard, unforgiving lobby surface, the injuries you suffer at that moment could be with you for the rest of your life. The injuries suffered can lead to broken bones, affect joints, or damage soft tissue. Your neck, back and head can be especially vulnerable if you were to fall backward. Shoulders, elbows, knees, and hips can suffer the kind of damage that can take an extremely long time to recover from if you’re still relatively young and healthy. If the victim is older, it can result in the thing most seniors are desperate to avoid: Being sent to a nursing home because living on their own is no longer an option.
Despite their negligence causing the accident that left someone injured, the first thing many building owners do is try to cover up evidence and hide from their responsibility. They will have their lawyers and insurance companies try to rush you into a quick, cheap settlement. They’re not stupid! By throwing what may seem generous to a family of limited means, they know that they will avoid paying the long-term bills that accompany serious injuries. The months of therapy, additional treatments, surgery, and possible move to a convalescent facility represent money they are keeping in their pocket once you’ve signed on the bottom line.
Feiner & Lavy doesn’t let this happen to its clients. We will stand up to these guys and will push them hard to get the kind of a settlement that will help your family to cover extensive expenses. Where they can pressure you, we will negotiate fiercely for you and your family, and to be sure that you can one day enjoy your best life without worrying about paying off years of medical bills that accumulated due to an insufficient injury settlement.
