Slip and Fall Accident Attorneys

New York Slip and Fall Attorneys Serving Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, the Bronx, and Staten Island

Slip and fall accidents are one of the leading causes of injury in America. These types of accidents can result in a wide range of injuries including: broken bones, back & spine injuries, brain injuries, concussions, and even death. The owners of a premises has a legal duty to people lawfully visiting their premises to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition. Business owners have a similar duty to their customers, as well. These parties may also be held legally responsible for personal injuries which occur on their property. Premises liability cases include but are not limited to:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Sidewalk accidents
  • Accidents inside of residential or commercial buildings
  • Elevator accidents
  • Inadequate security leading to assault, rape or murder

In cases such as the ones enumerated above, an injured person must still prove that the property owner or lessee either caused the defective or unsafe condition or they knew or should have known that there was a defective or unsafe condition on the property. Furthermore, a plaintiff must prove that this condition was a substantial factor in causing the injury. Another important factor that usually arises in these cases is the degree of responsibility for the accident by the injured party, if any, also known as contributory or comparative negligence, which could reduce a recovery or prevent one in its entirety.
