A—Slip trip and fall accidents typically occur when there are unsafe property conditions. Falls can occur indoors or outdoors, and they can happen anywhere. For example, malls, stores, work, construction sites, sidewalks, parks, stairs, leaky ice machines, grocery stores, and train stations are among the numerous places slip trip, and fall accidents occur.
A—The property owner has a legal obligation to anyone who comes on their property that they will be safe from harm. While that duty is not absolute, it does require that the property owner take reasonable steps to prevent accidents from occurring. These steps can include fixing broken stairs, clearing debris, providing adequate lighting and inspecting common apartment areas and placing warning signs where appropriate. Some measures may not be appropriate to expect from a property owner. For example, employing armed guards to patrol the property all day and night is considered unreasonable.
Maintaining property against “normal” wear and tear is also part of their responsibility. If a tenant or visitor suffers an injury because of an accident on the property, they will likely inform the owner. The owner should prepare a report and maintain these records which we will take steps to obtain to help prove that the owner had prior notice of that defective condition as part of your claim.
A—Immediately seek medical attention. The sooner you get a medical report, the better your chances of successfully filing a lawsuit. Have someone find witnesses of the slip and obtain their information. Their testimony will prove valuable to your case. You or someone on your behalf should take photos of the accident scene before it is changed; the more evidence, the better.
If you are at a store or other commercial location, you should request that the store manager completes an accident/incident report containing your version of what happened. Obtain a copy of that report, or we will on your behalf.
A—Yes, we do. Please contact our office to schedule an appointment for us to review your case. If you are unable to come to us, we will come to you. To schedule a Free Consultation, fill out the consultation form or call us at: (718) 790-4743.
