Premises liability cases arise when an individual suffers injuries that should have been prevented while on another’s property. The most common type of premises liability lawsuits involve slip and fall cases; these refer to instances in which an individual suffers injuries from a fall that was caused by a slippery floor, dangerous stair steps, or uneven and/or broken sidewalks.
A slip and fall accident can occur anywhere, but when it occurs on someone else’s property and there is possible negligence on the part of the owner or leaseholder, then you may have a cause for a personal injury claim if you find that you were injured as a result of the accident.
Whether you trip on one of those far too numerous sidewalk defects all over a city or slip in an office or residence, or if your child suffered an injury at school, you want a New York personal injury attorney, a Bronx personal injury attorney, a Westchester personal injury attorney, a Kings County personal attorney, a Brooklyn personal injury attorney and a Queens County personal injury attorney with the experience and skill of Gash & Associates, P.C.
Broken concrete walkways, flags of sidewalk and curbs, spilled soda, badly designed stairs, improper lighting, random debris, hundreds of separate things can cause a person to trip or to slip. Regardless of the nature of the unsafe condition or property defect, they share the ability to cause great injury. Regrettably, people who have been victimized by these unsafe conditions, are denied justice by the property owners who caused them, and by the insurance companies who reap in huge premiums to cover such losses; all of whom, refuse to step up, to do the right thing, and to take responsibility for your injury and for the harms and losses they caused.
