EEP Law Fights for What Matters to You Most – Your Family and Your Future.

I cannot speak highly enough of Elefterakis, Elefterakis & Panek (EEP) for their outstanding legal representation in my accident case. From the moment I reached out to them, by way of a referral from my friend (who happens to be a plastic surgeon), they demonstrated unwavering dedication and commitment to achieving justice for me and my family.


Certified Google Review

Caring, empathetic and professional. They always answer all my questions or concerns when I call. They continue to go above and beyond. My father passed away a few weeks back and they sent a beautiful arrangement of flowers to the funeral home. They feel more like a friend/family than my attorney.


Thoughtful, helpful, informative and communicative! Carmen Sanchez was a wealth of info and always available to answer any questions I needed. They handled my car accident case with care and gave me my options, no pressure, just info and advice. Great thing is that they handle a wide variety of cases. All staff are professional and friendly and work diligently for you. Janice Rodriquez was also amazing.


Best law firm with an amazing staff, everyone is so nice and welcoming. I would recommend this law firm to anybody that I know.

Above and beyond.
I recommend.


Great firm! Easy communication and importantly, they get the result for you!


Help Starts Here - EEP Law in NYC's Powerhouse Personal Injury & Civil Rights Law Firm.

EEP Law injury attorneys can help you understand your options when you’ve been hurt from a trip, slip or fall on public or private property.

Our clients look for help after being injured in these circumstances:

  • Wet and Slippery Floors: This can include spills in grocery stores, water tracked in from rain or snow at entrances, recently mopped or waxed floors, and leaks. Businesses are generally expected to promptly address these hazards.
  • Uneven Surfaces: This includes cracked or uneven sidewalks, potholes, loose floorboards, or uneven carpeting/tiles.
  • Cluttered Floors: Obstructions or debris in walkways, especially in retail or warehouse settings, can be a tripping hazard.
  • Inadequate Lighting: Poorly lit staircases, hallways, or parking lots can make it hard for individuals to see and avoid potential hazards.
  • Stairs: Missing handrails, broken steps, or slippery stairs can cause falls. The design of the stairs themselves, such as those that are too steep or shallow, can also be a risk factor.
  • Escalators and Elevators: Malfunctions, sudden stops, or uneven landings can cause people to trip or fall.
  • Weather-Related Hazards: Icy sidewalks, parking lots, or entryways can lead to slip and fall accidents. Property owners may have a responsibility to clear ice and snow within a reasonable time frame.
  • Inadequate Training: In work settings, employees may trip and fall if they haven’t been trained on safety procedures or if they lack appropriate safety gear.
  • Neglected Maintenance: If property owners don’t regularly inspect and maintain their premises, hazards may emerge and lead to accidents.
  • Hidden Hazards: This can include things like a hole or indentation hidden by grass in a lawn or a broken tile concealed by carpeting.
  • Not Sure? Contact us. Consultations are free. Help Starts Here.

If you have been the victim of an accident on someone’s premises through no fault of your own, whether a commercial establishment, private home or public property, it is your legal right to investigate the cause, and in the case of wrongdoing, file suit on the basis of premises liability.

Individuals, businesses and government agencies have clearly defined responsibilities for maintaining property in a safe condition.
