»PRACTICE AREAS • PREMISE LIABILITY ACCIDENTS

Property owners can be held liable for injuries caused by accidents, which occur on their property. If you have been injured while on someone else’s property, you may have the right to file a premises liability claim against them.

Premise liability claims are considered personal injury claims and require unique forms of proof to hold negligent parties accountable for their failure to act and/or properly maintain their premise in a safe condition.

Unlike a vehicle accident, premise liability claims require you to prove that something on the property caused your injury, and that the owner of the property had some form of notice about the existence of such a condition which caused your injury.

CHOPRA & NOCERINO, LLP, can engage all the experts, investigators, and obtain or the necessary documentation required to prove that the landowner had notice of the condition and was liable for your injuries.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Personal injury claims is a claim for injuries received as a result of a fall caused by the negligence of a premise/landowner. These claims are commonly referred to as Slip and Fall accidents. These claims are usually caused by the premise/landowner’s failure to clean a foreign substance that has remained at the location for an extended period of time that was either known to the premise/landowner or should have been known by the premise/landowner. These type of cases require proof that the premise/landowner had some form of notice about the foreign substances existence at the said location.

We will utilize the best experts in the field to bolster our claims and to help us put forth the best possible case in the event that a resolution cannot be reached and the matter moves to litigation.

Dog Bites

CHOPRA & NOCERINO, LLP, handles dog bite attack cases. We can use our best knowledge and experience to represent your case and achieve results.

  • There are approximately 4.7 million dog bites per year nationwide.
  • The number of dog bite attacks requiring medical attention has increased 15 times faster than the increase in dog ownership.
  • There are more than 850,000 dog bites requiring medical attention in the U.S. yearly.
  • Letter carriers suffer about 3,000 dog bites annually as they deliver the mail.

Victims of dog bite attacks can sustain painful and life-altering injuries, including deep skin wounds, loss of fingers, disfigurement, infections and scarring. Dogs that are prone to attack are a liability and the owners need to be held responsible for them. Owners must be held accountable for known tendencies of their animal, improper training, failure to observe and/or monitor their animal, and lack of discipline. Many dogs are not the problem, as they have suffered abuse or have not been trained properly, therefore, attack victims must act to hold owners responsible. Not only will you be compensated for injuries sustained, but you may save an animal too.

THINGS YOU SHOULD DO AFTER DOG ATTACK CASES

It is extremely important to secure evidence as quickly as possible. The best evidence that we seek to obtain immediately is the identity of the dog and its owner, photographs of the dog, identity of witnesses, witness statements, and photographs of the injuries and location of the attack. If we are notified immediately after an attack, we attempt to have our investigator at the scene, within an hour of notification, in order to gather and preserve evidence.

If you or a loved one has suffered from a dog bite or animal attack, contact the accomplished CHOPRA & NOCERINO for a free consultation. We will use our experience, knowledge and resources to achieve the best possible results for you and your family.
