New York Slip and Fall Attorney
Injuries suffered on another's property - whether it is a home, store, shop, office, sidewalk, or commercial building - are often the result of negligent maintenance or even complete disregard for the safety of others. If you or a family member has been injured in a slip-and-fall or other accident away from your home, you may have a premises liability claim.

Big Apple Pothole Protective Committee
- Our principal attorney Stephan Peskin has been the president of the Big Apple Pothole Protective Committee (Big Apple) since 1997. Big Apple was formed to map all of the existing defects on sidewalks within New York City and report those defects to the New York City Department of Transportation.
- Until September 15, 2003, an injured party could not recover from the City of New York unless the City had prior written notice of the existence of the sidewalk defect. Big Apple supplied that written notice.
- The laws governing New York City sidewalk accidents are currently undergoing an enormous change. The new law is being challenged on a constitutional level.
- Because of his position at Big Apple, Mr. Peskin is in the center of the legal struggle to protect the rights of persons injured on the sidewalks of New York. Big Apple continues to provide notice of defective sidewalks to landlords of abutting buildings who are now responsible for maintaining the sidewalks.
