Slip/Trip and Fall

Premises liability cases involve accidents that occur due to negligent maintenance, or unsafe and dangerous conditions upon property owned by someone other than the accident victim. Property owners and business establishments have a duty to provide a safe environment for individuals on their premises. Common situations giving rise to premises accidents include uneven floor surfaces, poorly marked changes in elevation, slippery surfaces, broken sidewalks, uneven elevators, and broken steps.

While there are many different types of premises liability cases, slip and fall, and trip and fall are the most common.  In a slip and fall scenario the victim may slip on a wet area on the floor causing injury.  In a trip and fall the victim may trip over stairs, debris, or uneven pavement causing injury.  In the event that a property owner fails to protect people on their property, they may be liable under New York and New Jersey law.

The law requires grocery stores to clean up spills quickly, commercial buildings to fix stairs or railings that are damaged or defective, and shopping malls are required to provide adequate security for customers.  Property owners have a legal duty to keep their buildings and surrounding premises in reasonably safe condition, and if you are injured in an unsafe building or a structure, you deserve to be compensated for the damage done to you.
