NEW YORK SLIP AND FALL ATTORNEYS
Slip and fall accidents and trip and fall accidents — also called “premises liability” cases — in New York often occur as a result of dangerous conditions at the premises of a business or resident. These accidents may happen inside buildings and homes, or outdoors on sidewalks, stairs or walkways. Causes of slip and fall accidents include improperly maintained or uneven flooring, debris or other substances on the ground, inadequate lighting, stairs that are missing handrails or weather related slippery conditions. Icy patches, raised, cracked or uneven sidewalks and potholes in pedestrian crosswalks are also potential causes of trip and fall accidents.
Injuries that result from slip or trip and fall accidents are far too common. Frequently, these injuries are caused by the negligence of the person or company responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the property. Building owners, store owners, homeowners and property managers have a responsibility to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition.
