Slip, Trip and Fall Accidents and Dog Bites


Slip, Trip and Fall Accidents and Dog Bite Injuries on Long Island

Experienced Personal Injury Attorneys on Long Island

In New York State, the effective handling of premises liability and dog bite injury cases can be very challenging. For example:

  • Have you been bitten by a dog? The burden is on you to establish that the dog owner had prior notice that the animal was dangerous. We can conduct an investigation to determine whether the dog that attacked you has a history of past aggression.
  • Were you injured on city property? In Lindenhurst, you have just ninety days to file a claim with the municipality.
  • Were you injured on ice or snow? If a contractor was responsible for maintaining the property, your claim will involve multiple parties, including the property owner and the independent property maintenance company.

At the Lindenhurst, New York, law firm of Phillips, Artura & Cox, our lawyers have handled dozens of personal injury cases involving dangerous property and dog bites. We can explain your options if you were injured:

– On a municipal sidewalk that was not level or had large gaps
– On a private sidewalk belonging to a condominium association, a townhouse association or other organization
– In a store/retail establishment or private residence

We can pursue your claim for damages even if your injury was “defensive” — meaning that you were injured not from dangerous property per se but perhaps by trying to break your fall. And we can work quickly to obtain information from municipalities to strengthen your claim.
