Multiple Responsible Parties In A Slip and Fall Accident

Unlike most run-of-the-mill Car Accident cases, in New York slip and fall cases may have multiple defendants, including individuals, corporations, or governmental entities, such as cities, counties, or local governments. It is important to note that when these defendants (or potential defendants) are involved in a premises liability case, different statutory time periods and notice deadlines may apply.(‘Statute of Limitations – Don’t let it run out and lose.‘)  Experienced Accident Lawyer Brooklyn NY of The Rybak Firm, PLLC., will be aware of these deadlines and can ensure that they are met.

The injured plaintiff must also show that the slip and fall accident resulted in certain injuries and damages, such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and/or permanent damage.(‘Slip and Fall Accidents.
