Slip and Fall and Trip and Fall Accidents (Fall Downs) Can Cause Serious Injury; New York Accident Attorney Richard C. Bell Can Help You Recover the Compensation You Deserve
Sometimes when people fall, it is a result of poorly maintained property or inadequate safety measures. In these cases, when serious injury results, you may have grounds for a premises liability case. Falls due to poorly maintained property can cause serious and debilitating injuries and may leave victims with serious and permanent injuries, huge medical bills, lost wages and even the inability to go back to work or engage in the activities they once enjoyed. In these cases, victims are entitled to financial compensation, and it is legally just that negligent property owners or managers be held responsible for their actions. If you have been seriously injured in a slip and fall or trip and fall case, New York personal injury attorney Richard C. Bell will work tirelessly to get you the money you deserve.
Let Richard C. Bell’s Experience Work for You When You’ve Been Injured Due to a Fall Down
