Slip-and-Fall Accidents - What the Law Says

Generally, rulings in trip-and-fall lawsuits revolve around two issues: first, whether the owner knew, or should have known, about a hazardous situation and taken care of it; and second, whether the plaintiff was partially responsible for having fallen on it. In many cases, as our premises liability and slip-and-fall attorneys in New York City know, a favorable outcome can only be achieved with skilled, intelligent representation.

The court must decide, in slip-and-fall cases, whether the owner knew about a dangerous situation on his or her property and neglected to resolve it. Even if the owner claims no knowledge of the danger, there is also the question of whether given the amount of time it existed and the other circumstances of the case, he should have known about it and fixed it.

Trip-and-fall cases vary widely and our premises liability attorneys, serving the Bronx and other New York City areas, have the background in this field to win our clients the restitution they deserve. Contact us to schedule a free consultation and case review.

Obtaining Compensation

For a successful premises liability lawsuit, our attorneys must show that the owner was negligent in his or her duties, either in physically eliminating hazardous conditions or in warning visitors about them. Often the owner will be found partially at fault for injuries, a ruling that results in the plaintiff receiving a percentage of the damages awarded instead of the full amount.
