What Responsibility Does the Property Owner Have?

Property owners are required to maintain a safe environment for people on their property. When property owners fail in this duty, people can be seriously injured as a result. These injuries can be especially serious. If you or a loved one has been injured in a store, an apartment building, or on the sidewalk, one of our Slip and Fall Attorneys can help you recover appropriate damages for your injuries. No case is too small; we want to hear from you.

Below is a list of common locations where slip and fall accidents often occur.

  • Places of employment
  • Swimming pools
  • Staircases /Elevators / Escalators
  • Office buildings
  • Public restrooms
  • Driveways, parking garages and parking lots
  • Gymnasiums
  • Supermarkets and other grocery and fruit stores

Slip and fall and trip and fall injuries can occur under a number of different circumstances.  Spilled liquid, snow and/or ice, or some other temporary condition creates a hazard and causes an individual to slip and fall or trip and fall.

In slip and fall accidents, the injured party will have to prove that the property owner knew, or should have known, about the hazardous conditions and did nothing to correct the condition and prevent injury. Building code violations, inadequate lighting or other problems can also cause circumstances where someone is likely to become injured.

How to Prove a Slip and Fall Injury Case in NYC

Essentially a New York City Plaintiff must establish that there is an unsafe or dangerous condition. There are 6 types of evidence you need in order to prove your case. The law requires that the condition must have existed for a period of time sufficient to give the owner notice that it was unsafe. Our experienced New York Slip and Fall Lawyers understand the concept of notice and what the law requires in a slip and fall accidents. Many public sidewalks require a Notice of Claim to be properly filed within 90 (ninety) days of an accident. If you fail to file the Notice of Claim with the proper New York City Municipal Department or agency, your claim will be denied forever.

In New York City, laws regarding sidewalks, roadways, tree wells or curbs, are confusing. One section of a sidewalk may be the responsibility of two different parties. It is extremely important to select an experienced Personal Injury Law Firm that understands who the proper parties are, and how to timely and properly file your claim.

New York Laws Affecting Tripping Hazards in Buildings

If there is an unsafe condition causing a trip and fall accident in an apartment building it would be governed by Article 78 of the New York State Multiple Dwelling Law. Additionally there are New York State Building Codes and regulations which set forth requirements regarding handrails, stair and tread riser heights and widths. The New York City Lighting Codes are also relevant too as many New York City stairwell accidents are caused by poor lighting.
