Everyday NYC Dangers: Slip and Fall Accidents

New York City can be a dangerous place to navigate and one of the most common perils that cause injuries to thousands of people each year stem from slip and fall accidents. There are many causes of these accidents, including poor lighting, slippery floors, foreign objects on the floor, uneven or rippled carpeting, potholes, stairs and speed bumps, broken and uneven sidewalks, and obstacles on the ground or walkway, and unbalanced flooring.

Who’s At Fault in a Slip and Fall Accident?

A property owner may be held accountable for the injuries suffered from slip and fall accidents on their property. Generally speaking, an injured party must show that the property owner or their agents caused the condition, the owner and/or its agents knew of the condition but did nothing about it, and finally, the owner or their agents should have known about the condition because a “reasonable” person taking care of the property would have discovered the condition and repaired or removed it.

These cases can be very complex and it is important to hire an experienced slip and fall lawyer in NYC who will thoroughly investigate every detail of the accident to determine who is at fault and who can assist you in meeting the deadlines for giving notice to parties accused of negligence and or involvement in the slip and fall case, and aggressively fight to ensure that you recover compensation for your injuries.
