Trip/Slip & Fall
A Slip/Trip and Fall case may arise from many different conditions including a cracked, raised or uneven sidewalk or roadway, snow and ice that was left unshoveled or unsalted or improperly shoveled and salted, a liquid left on the floor in a public place or store, or even the result of naturally occurring items such as rocks, trees or tree roots. If you or someone you know has been the victim of someone else's failure to safely maintain their property or the sidewalk, you may have a case. Call us to learn more.

Call us to find out if you qualify.
Motorcycle accident cases in New York present their own form of challenges. Unlike ordinary automobile accidents, where drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists are virtually guaranteed some basic level of medical care through New York’s No-Fault law, motorcyclists are not covered by New York’s No-Fault insurance. This leaves motorcyclists who have been injured through the negligence of other’s exposed and left to fend for themselves. At the Law Offices of Joseph Z. Amsel, we have experience handling and successfully trying these cases and will fight hard to get you the compensation you deserve. Call us to find out more.

If you or someone you know is the victim of such medical malpractice, you may have a case. Call us now and let us help you get justice.
