Gerry's Educational Personal Injury Website
You're coming home from work, heading to your car in the parking lot and it's snowing heavily. It's another natural disaster here in NY following Hurricane Sandy. As you are walking to your car, you slip and fall and break your leg and hit your head badly.
An ambulance takes you to the hospital where you stay for a week following surgery to repair your fractured femur. While sitting in your hospital bed, eating gourmet hospital food (that's sarcastic by the way), you ask yourself "Why?"
Why did this happen? How did this happen? "Could my fall have been prevented?"
"Should something have been done that would have prevented this horrible accident?"
At that point you begin to realize that maybe falling on snow or ice during the snow storm may not have been your fault. Instead, the owner of the parking lot or maybe even the snow plow company that cleared the parking lot of snow might be responsible.
Now you start to think about how the property owner could be responsible for your injuries.

Here's a cardiac malpractice case where I was able to achieve a $6 million dollar settlement for my client.
Here's a foot surgery case where a Westchester, NY jury awarded my client $1.55 million dollars for her pain and suffering.
To learn more about how accident and negligence cases work in the state of New York, I encourage you to explore my educational website.
