Slips & Falls
Under New York State premises liability law, homeowners and property owners are required to provide safe access to any visitors, patrons, or employees, regardless of the weather. If someone slips and falls as a result of freshly washed floors that were unmarked, or slips on ice or snow because an access way wasn’t properly shoveled or salted to prevent ice build up, the property owner could be held liable for any injuries sustained in that slip and fall, and any required medical attention.
An injury resulting from a slip and fall on someone’s property can result in lost wages, job loss, and/or expensive and extensive medical bills.
The personal injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Eric R. Bernstein are well-versed in premises liability cases including slips and falls. A trip or slip and fall on an icy sidewalk, a loose, uneven stair tread, or a piece of debris or spilled liquid on the floor can mean weeks or even months of pain and suffering.
An experienced premises liability lawyer from our Manhattan office can determine whether liability may exist in a particular case and help an injured person recover damages for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
