Slip and fall injury – at property and other municipality

Property owners are not only responsible for keeping their property safe for those who may come onto the premises, they are also liable for maintaining their property so that it is secure, safe, and well lit.  A few of the most common causes of a slip and fall accident are:

  • Slippery or wet floors
  • Ice or snow that has not been properly cleaned or cleared
  • Stairways with missing or defective handrails
  • Carpeting and/or rugs that or torn or ripped
  • Uneven steps
  • Broken steps
  • Sidewalks that are uneven or damaged
  • Unsafe stairs
  • Any hazardous condition which can lead to a trip and fall or slip and fall injury

A sidewalk accident, slipping on a supermarket floor that is freshly mopped or waxed – all of these circumstances can lead to serious life-altering injuries, or even worse.  Property owners must warn those who will come onto their premises that a risk or danger exists; when they do not, they may be held responsible for costs associated with the individual’s injuries.

Others who may be held liable due to a slip and fall injury

As experienced Brooklyn personal injury lawyers, we understand that property owners are not the only ones who may be held accountable for these types of accidents.  Retail stores, schools, management companies, building owners and even homeowners may be held liable when an individual is injured on their property.

In the state of New York, there are some very specific responsibilities that property owners must take care of in order to avoid others becoming injured.  Some of these include keeping sidewalks and surfaces clear of spills or debris, repairing broken sidewalks, and shoveling snow or ice from sidewalks or other surfaces people may use within the legal time frame.  Our slip and fall Brooklyn accident attorneys will work vigorously to ensure that those responsible for your injuries are held fully accountable.
