    Answered . My sense is that because you are posting this question that the relationship with your attorney may not be ideal, one of communication and trust. Unless the facts of your case are somewhat complex or your injuries compel some delay, generally whether in the Bronx or elsewhere five years for a generic "slip and fall" matter is too long to litigate. Make an appointment with your attorney and feel comfortable after you leave that you have an adequate explanation why you are five years post injury and what are reasonable expectations to resolve your case. Make a decision based on that meeting whether to stay the course with your current counsel or find new counsel based on open communication, access, trust and competence.

The negligence analysis does not get to damages until liability is established first. Here's what that means: BLUE LINK BELOW
