Slip & Fall
New York slips and falls lawyer
Helping victims of slip and fall injuries
Slips and falls can cause serious and traumatic fractures, muscle tears, head and other soft tissue injuries that sometimes lead to death. Injuries may take weeks or months to heal and restrict a person’s mobility and quality of life.
These accidents may happen under situations that aren’t always under your control. Some of the factors that lead to slips and falls include:
- Falling on a slippery walkway at your home
- Poor or broken lighting
- Wet floors in stores, restaurants, or workplaces
- Tripping on uneven pavement
- Broken steps, missing handrails, unmarked steps or inclines
You may be able to file a claim to get compensation for your pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages.
How New York Laws Determine Who’s Responsible
According to New York’s premises liability law, property owners or employees are responsible for maintaining their locations in a reasonably safe condition, including stairs, floors, and parking lots. As part of the law, the owners must periodically inspect these and other areas to prevent hazards and fix them. When they’re unsafe and the person or business at fault didn’t take reasonable care in maintaining the property, you may hold them accountable for your damages.
It’s vital to determine who’s responsible. Depending on where your injuries took place, you may seek compensation from owners or employees of restaurants, homes, office buildings, strip malls, and more.
