New York City and Long Island Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

Property owners have a legal obligation to protect guests from unreasonable risks. Though the circumstances of every slip and fall accident differ, the victim can typically claim compensation if it can be shown that he or she suffered an injury as a result of a danger on the property that should have been remedied or brought to his or her attention.

Slip and Fall Accident Cases

Slip and fall accident cases fall under the category of premises liability law since such injuries occur due to unsafe conditions on another party’s property. Owners of commercial and residential property owe their patrons or visitors a duty of care, meaning that they are responsible for keeping the property safe and posting clear warnings of any potentially hazardous conditions. For example, a business owner is responsible for keeping the premises clear of hazardous puddles or a malfunctioning escalator – or to properly alert patrons of these hazards. Individuals who slip in a spilled liquid or trip down the stairs may be eligible to file a claim against the property owner and recover financial compensation. This responsibility also applies to residential property owners. A visitor who breaks his or her wrist by tripping over a gardening tool left by the owner concealed by grass could hold the owner liable for damages.

A slip and fall accident can result in significant losses and expenses, such as medical costs (hospital and surgical bills), lost wages, diminished earning potential, in addition to considerable pain and suffering. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, it’s crucial that you contact an experienced New York City and Long Island slip and fall accident lawyer as soon as possible after your injury.
