Aggressive Advocacy When You Need Results
Severe injuries can occur during even the most routine day-to-day activities, from slipping on a spill in the grocery store to falling on ice in a parking lot. While these trips and falls often cause more embarrassment than pain, some can cause serious injuries with lasting consequences.
At The Kindlon Law Firm, an Albany, New York, personal injury law firm, we are dedicated advocates for individuals who have been injured on someone else's property, helping them secure the compensation they deserve for injuries caused by another's negligence.
Many individuals who have sustained slip-and-fall injuries brush them off initially, but with time the extent of their injuries becomes more apparent. This can make collecting evidence and documenting relevant information more difficult, and often makes cases harder to win.

- Spills and puddles
- Icy sidewalks
- Uneven surfaces
- Broken stairs
- Poor lighting
- Exposure to hazardous materials
We have built a reputation as unwavering advocates who will fight to the very end to protect clients and secure full and fair compensation for their injuries. We go above and beyond to exceed client expectations, providing the highest quality legal advice with one-on-one attention.

All property owners, residential and commercial, have the duty to ensure safe environments for all visitors. If you have been harmed by a hazardous condition on another’s sidewalk, personal residence, restaurant, mall, hotel, office building school, park, theater, museum or other property, you may be eligible to file a premises liability claim and receive compensation for your injury.
“Slip and Fall” injuries are a major cause of premises liability and commonly occur from uneven or slippery surfaces but can also be the result of:
- crumbling stairs
- wet floors
- exposed electrical wiring
- raised flooring
- falling debris
- obstructed pathways
- poorly lit walkways
Although premises liability law seeks to protect parties who are injured as the result of the property owner’s negligence, it is often difficult to prove liability especially if the owner has corrected the hazardous condition. To ensure that the proper grounds for your claim are met, you should contact our knowledgeable personal injury attorneys who have the resources and experience necessary to help you collect compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and even emotional trauma.
Our personal injury law firm can assess your injury and assist you in determining whether the property owner failed to maintain his or her property or properly warn of hazardous conditions. For your claim to be successful, it must be shown that the property owner knew about the hazardous situation and failed to correct it in a timely manner, and that the action or inaction of the property owner caused the condition which led to your injury.
Once liability has been established, we will work with you in proving a direct causal relationship between the hazard on the property and the injury that you suffered. A myriad of other factors including visitor status must also be considered when filing a premises liability claim. Visitor status explains your reason for the visit to the property. If you are an invited guest your claim may hold more weight in court, whereas a trespasser may not be able to receive any compensation for his injuries.
Our compassionate injury attorneys consider all of these factors and will represent you aggressively so you can take care of what is most important—recovering from your injury and regaining your health.
