If you were involved in a slip and fall injury that occurred on someone else’s property, you should call an experienced personal injury attorney right away.
There are thousands of slip and fall injuries every year in New York State. Since they usually occur with no warning and the victim falls instantly onto a hard surface, a slip and fall injury can be very serious. Slip and fall accident injuries often result in complex fractures of the hip, hand, wrist or elbow. Concussions, head, neck and brain injuries are also common.
When a property owner, for example, a business, apartment owner or municipality fails in their lawful duty to provide safe walkways and parking lots and that failure results in an innocent person being injured, a slip and fall claim may arise. Dangers such as poor maintenance (a greasy or wet floor, for instance), debris, ice or snow can cause a slip and fall accident. Often these accidents could have been avoided had the property been repaired or properly maintained, or even if the victim had been made aware of the danger with proper signage.
If you or a loved one has been hurt in a slip and fall accident, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
