Abogado de Accidentes en Edificios en Nueva York
At the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm, we help people who have been injured in accidents as a result of poor maintenance, or defects on a property, such as on the sidewalk, or in a parking lot. Construction and other debris in hallways can also cause an unsafe environment in which these injuries can occur. Many of the cases we have handled involve accidents that occurred in the construction industry or involve an improperly maintained building, but we also handle cases where a lack of security caused the client to be the victim of a crime.
To claim compensation for these types of accidents, we have to show that a dangerous condition existed on the property and that the person or company that owns, operates and manages the property was negligent in protecting you. This means that there was an obvious and unreasonable risk situation, such as a broken section of sidewalk, and the owner, manager, or manager did not make a reasonable effort to fix it.
In one case, a verdict was obtained for a woman who injured her arm due to a defective curbside basement door. The defense offered $ 200,000 to settle the case, but we took it to trial and got $ 525,000 for the injured person.
We can even go where you are at your home, hospital or work. If you do not have a doctor to treat you for your injury, we may well be able to find doctors who can treat you without you having to pay them until the end of the case, and we can keep insurance company representatives away from you.
