NYC/Long Island Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers

Slip and fall accidents refer to situations where a person gets injured after slipping or tripping and falling on someone else’s property. When these accidents are caused by the negligence of the property owner or the tenant of the property, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your damages in a premises liability lawsuit.

Premises liability laws require property owners to maintain safe conditions for guests and visitors. Failure to uphold this responsibility can make the negligent property owner liable for your damages.

Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can occur almost anywhere. Whether you are on public property or visiting someone’s private home, the property owner has the same obligation to take reasonable care to ensure your safety. This includes discovering dangerous conditions and fixing them in a timely manner. Our Long Island slip and fall lawyers can help, if you feel the property owner was negligent.

The following dangerous conditions commonly cause slip and fall accidents:

  • Uneven sidewalks
  • Potholes
  • Poorly lit or unmarked pathways or stairs
  • Wet floors
  • Unbalanced flooring
  • Rippled carpet
  • Obstructions on the floor
  • Tripping hazards
  • Cracked or uneven stairways
  • Snowy or icy sidewalks

 

Proving Fault in Slip and Fall Cases

Proving negligence on the part of a premises owner or tenant in a slip and fall case requires evidence on several issues. First, you must show that a dangerous condition existed on the premises. Second, you must show that the dangerous condition was a cause of your accident and resultant injuries. Finally, you must demonstrate that the property owner or tenant had notice of the dangerous condition and was negligent in failing to repair it. One of the most important roles of an Long Island slip and fall attorney is to gather evidence proving the other party was at fault.

In order to prove the last of these points, that of notice, your lawyer must establish one of three points:

  • The property owner created the condition which caused your injury
  • The property owner knew the dangerous condition existed and failed to correct it
  • The dangerous condition existed long enough that the property owner should have reasonably discovered and fixed it prior to the time your slip and fall accident occurred
