NY Trip and Fall
At Stephen Bilkis and Associates, our experienced NY Personal Injury Lawyer team has learned that the majority of slip and fall accidents happen when the victim is on property owned by either a city agency, a private agency or by another person. It's important to keep in mind that regardless of who owns the property, the owner is legally bound to make sure the property is safe. Cracks in the pavement, ice, slippery surfaces, potholes or unstable stairs are all potential hazards and could cause a slip and fall injury. The property owner must perform regular inspections and properly maintain the property to ensure the safety for those who come on to the property. In the event that a property owner is aware of a potentially dangerous situation, it's their responsibility to warn people of that danger, while they're waiting to have the situation fixed.
There are a multitude of injuries that can arise from a slip and fall accident. Some of the more common include: broken bones, fracture, dislocated joint, spinal cord injury, head injury, back injury and, in serious cases, wrongful death. If you or a loved one has sustained a serious or traumatic injury in a slip and fall accident, you may be entitled to compensation under New York premise liability law. Our NY Personal Injury Lawyer group at Stephen Bilkis and Associates will review your case and advise you of your legal options.
A slip and fall injury can happen in a number of different scenarios. For example, a rickety staircase can easily lead to a serious slip and fall injury. Rain, snow and ice can cause slippery floors and sidewalks, which can also lead to a slip and fall injury. A slip and fall injury can happen anywhere. Whether it's at the local mall, a grocery store or another person's residence, each property owner has the obligation to maintain their property to ensure the safety of their patrons and guests. Our NY Trip and Fall Lawyer team at Stephen Bilkis and Associates is available for a free consultation after your accident. Our team can also provide legal help with other personal injury cases such as those that result from a bicycle accident, truck accident, construction accident, dog bite or doctor’s error.
