Slip & Fall Accidents in New York
We all have slipped, tripped and fallen at some point. We often get up, dust off and go on with whatever we were doing. However, some falls can result in serious, painful injuries that might require hospitalization and even may result in temporary or permanent disability.
You Deserve Compensation.
If you’ve slipped and gotten hurt due to the negligence of the owner of the property you are in, somebody needs to be liable. By law, businesses, homes, parking lots, schools, roads and walkways must be maintained to ensure people walk on them safely.
A landowner or caretaker owes a certain duty of care to you when you enter their premises. This responsibility is known as Premise Liability. However, entrants into a property are traditionally divided into invitee, licensee and trespasser. The category under which you enter a premise during a fall determines the level of care the premise owner owes you and, consequently, the level of liability they hold in case of an accident.
