Slip and Fall Accident Cases
Injuries suffered on another’s property home, store, office, sidewalk, or commercial building are often the result of negligent maintenance or even complete disregard for the safety of others.
Common premises liability cases include “slip and falls”, “trip and falls”, swimming pool accidents and the like. One should realize that the mere existence of a defective condition in a store or public place of business does not, as a matter of law, render the proprietor liable for an injury caused by the defective condition unless the proprietor knew, or in the exercise of reasonable care ought to have known, of the defect, i.e. the slippery substance that caused the slip and fall.
The length of time a substance must remain on the floor before the owner should have discovered it, for purposes of premises liability, and what constitutes a reasonable inspection procedure vary with each case, depending on the nature of the business, the size of the store, the number of customers, the nature of the dangerous condition, and the store’s location.
New York’s laws on premises liability are complex and ever changing. Therefore, it is imperative that you contact an attorney who has experience and knowledge of the law so that it can be determined whether you have a viable claim.
