How it Works and How We Work with You
In 90% of the cases, slip and fall accidents are not investigated by the police. It is imperative that you obtain the names and contact information of witnesses, obtain photographs of the accident scene, including the actual cause of your slip and fall and the surrounding area. This will not allow the property owner to alter the scene of the accident. It is important to report your slip and fall to the owner, occupier and/or manager of the property so that a record of the slip and fall is made.
Once that is done, immediately contact Himelfarb Proszanski so we can begin building your case against the property owner and/or occupant. Our Slip and Fall Lawyers are able to access information you will not be able to obtain and it is this information that your case will depend on.
If your slip and fall occurred as a result of ice or snow on a municipal or city sidewalk then you must provide written notice within 10 days. Furthermore, you must be able to prove “gross negligence” against the municipality. This means you need an experienced personal injury lawyer who understands how to build a case against your municipality proving gross negligence. In most other slip and fall cases, there is no early notice requirement, however early investigation, including notifying the occupier and property owner is vital for a successful outcome.

Often the public perceives lawyers in a negative way; but I can honestly say that David Himelfarb has the utmost ethical standards of any lawyer that I have dealt with.
