Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents cause thousands of injuries each year. One misstep resulting from a broken stair, poorly maintained sidewalk, or slippery surface can lead to serious personal injury.
To successfully litigate a victim’s slip and fall accident, their lawyer must demonstrate:
- The property owner (or party responsible for maintaining the site) caused the unsafe condition and subsequent slip and fall accident;
- The property owner knew of the danger but failed to correct it; or
- The property owner should have known of the dangerous condition because a “reasonable” person would have found the problem and corrected it.
If a property owner is shown to have acted negligently, then they may be held liable for the victim’s injury. To learn more about premises liability claims, contact a Manhattan, New York City slip and fall accident lawyer at David Horowitz, PC, today and schedule a free consultation.
Premises Liability Lawsuits
Proving liability in a slip and fall accident lawsuit is no easy task. In fact, there are several notable exceptions to general premises liability cases. They include claims involving children, trespassers, workplace accidents, and government property. These slip and fall accidents can be particularly complicated or difficult to prove liability.
For a successful premises liability lawsuit, our attorneys must demonstrate that the owner was negligent in his or her duties, either in physically eliminating hazardous conditions or in warning visitors about them. If successful, victims may recover compensation for:
- Medical bills (both past and future expenses)
- Lost income and diminished earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
Often the owner will be found partially at fault for injuries, a ruling that results in the plaintiff receiving a percentage of the damages awarded instead of the full amount.
