Long Island Slip, Trip & Falls Lawyers
Slips or trip and fall injuries caused by unsafe property conditions are common types of premises liability cases. While many slip and fall accidents result in scrapes, bruises, or minor injuries, others lead to severe harm, such as broken bones, herniated discs, spinal cord injury, brain injury or even death.
Common hazards that cause slips and falls include:
- Spills on retail store floors
- Wet floors during mopping
- Water, ice, or snow on outdoor walkways
- Poorly light stairways
- Broken steps or stairs
- Lack of handrails or broken railings
- Potholes in parking lots
- Obscured holes on grounds areas
- Uneven or cracked sidewalks
- Slick wooden ramps
- Aisles cluttered with boxes and merchandise
Slip and fall injuries can occur anywhere — indoors, outdoors, on public or private property. Injuries suffered on another’s property, whether in a home, on a sidewalk, or in a commercial building or shop, are often caused by negligent maintenance or even complete disregard for the safety of others. If you have been injured because of a slip and fall or a trip and fall on a parking lot, an icy sidewalk or a defective sidewalk, those responsible may be liable for your injuries.
Property Owner Liability
People who own property have a responsibility to keep their building or land in reasonably safe condition. If a dangerous condition does exist, the owner may be liable for your injuries if they knew, or should have known that the dangerous condition existed at the time of your accident.
Dangerous property conditions are especially hazardous for the elderly, who are often less stable on their feet and have weakened bones and frail conditions. They may be more likely to experience serious injury from a slip and fall.
Many people who slip and fall assume the injury was their own fault. However, this is often not the case. Holding the proper party responsible can prevent others from experiencing similar misfortune. In addition, because a slip or trip and fall can result in a life-threatening situation, dangerous property conditions should not be taken lightly.
