Property owners are obligated by law to keep their public areas safe. Failure to maintain these areas can result in serious injuries including concussions, broken bones and other injuries both big and small.
If you have suffered a serious injury from a slip-and-fall because of dangerous conditions on property owned by someone else, you have the right to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Premises liability law in New York is complex, however, and you will need experienced legal counsel to effectively pursue your claim or lawsuit.
Slip-and-fall accidents can be caused by many different things including snow, a slippery surface due a spilled liquid, inadequate lighting or other reason. If you have suffered an injury on someone else’s property for these or any other reason then please contact us as soon as possible.
