Slip and Fall

A slip and fall accident occurs when a person slips and falls due to a hazardous condition on the premises where they were walking. The law in New York is very complex and the need to have a skilled injury attorney review your case and preserve evidence is very important. There are many factors that could contribute to a slip and fall accident, such as:

  • Broken stairs or handrails
  • Tattered or torn carpets
  • Wet or slippery floors
  • Obstructed walkways
  • Exposed holes or ditches
  • Poor lighting
  • Falling objects
  • Floor collapse
  • Failure to post warning signs
  • Ice

Although it may not seem like a slip and fall would lead to a serious injury, the truth is a slip and fall accident can easily result in crippling conditions to the victim. Injures common in a slip and fall accident include head trauma, brain injury, back and spinal cord injuries, paralysis, broken or fractured bones, permanent disability, and more.

If you’ve suffered an injury due to a slip and fall, you may have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the owner of the property. Property owners have a legal responsibility to ensure their premises are free of any dangerous conditions that could lead to an accident.

With the help of an experienced slip and fall lawyer, you could recover compensation for your pain and suffering, emotional trauma, medical bills and hospitalization expenses, future medical expenses, lost wages, future lost wages, and decreased quality of life.
