Your Personal Injury Attorney in West Seneca & Orchard Park, NY

Accidents happen in life. The results of these accidents can be devastating. A simple two-car automobile accident or a slip off a scaffold at work can result in injuries so serious that you are never able to lead the same life again.

Personal Injury includes any injury that was caused by the negligence of another. Liability is found in personal injury cases when:

  1. The wrongdoer has failed to exercise the level of care required, as determined by law; 
  2. There is proof that the victim was injured; and 
  3. There is proof that the victim's injuries were caused by the wrongdoer's carelessness.

An example is a "slip and fall," the generic term for an injury which occurs when someone slips, trips or falls as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else's property. It can include falls as a result of water, ice or snow, as well as abrupt changes in flooring, poor lighting, or a hidden hazard such as a gap or hard to see hole in the ground.
