Property owners are required to maintain a safe property for patrons, visitors, or anyone who may come onto that property; unfortunately, many fail to do so, resulting in serious injuries.  A sidewalk accident may be attributed to holes, deep cracks, damage, even accumulated ice or snow.  A construction accident may be caused by a fall from a ladder or trip over debris or other obstruction.  Regardless of your trip and fall injury, we are ready to protect your legal rights and fight for the full compensation you deserve as a result of your trip and fall injuries.

Some of the most common reasons for a trip and fall injury

Spills and obstructions
Whether a spill, obstruction in a grocery store aisle or on a construction site or greasy floors in a restaurant; any situation that potentially puts those who will be on the property at risk should be remedied within a reasonable time   otherwise, consumers must be warned of the danger.

Sidewalks and steps that are damaged or ice-covered
Sidewalks are one of the busiest places in New York; when steps or walkways are damaged, in disrepair, or covered with ice it can be hazardous for those using them.  A trip and fall or slip and fall injury can result.

Poor lighting
Whether in an apartment or hotel hallway or stairwell, in a parking garage or any area, poor lighting can lead to accidents caused by the inability of an individual to see any damage or objects in his or her path that could potentially be dangerous.

Uneven surfaces, torn carpeting
Rugs or carpeting that are worn or torn can result in a trip and fall injury, as can any uneven surfaces on driveways, parking lots, and sidewalks.  These types of accidents can lead to serious injuries including broken bones, lacerations, even head or brain injuries.

We know the unexpected happens when you least expect it

You never expect to trip on an object or slip on a slippery surface and fall, but it happens every day.  You may be out for a walk, climbing the stairs at your workplace, or walking through the produce section at the supermarket, and suddenly you find yourself in the hospital with potentially serious injuries.  Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may require medical care for an extended period of time, or you may be unable to work.  While hopefully it is not the case, you could be temporarily or even permanently disabled.  Ultimately, a trip and fall injury could leave you facing financial devastation, not to mention that your life has been turned upside down.

If you are a victim of these or similar circumstances, you deserve compensation from those who were negligent in not maintaining safe premises.  Some of the compensation you may be entitled to includes medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, even future income or medical expenses should your injuries be extensive and require future treatment, rehabilitation, etc.
