I’ve Been Hurt In A Slip-And-Fall Accident. Who Is Responsible?

Street with uneven bricks | slip and fall accident attorneys in new york | Gash & Associates, P.C.

Slip-and-fall accidents can occur almost anywhere at any time. Whether you are simply walking down a poorly maintained sidewalk, shopping in a store with slippery aisles or any other situation in between, a slip-and-fall accident can cause severe injury ― not to mention leading to significant medical bills.

Sadly, these types of injuries are not accidents, they are preventable and they continue to occur despite the fact that New York law imposes a duty upon property owners ― including business owners, landlords and leaseholders ― to follow safety rules and use reasonable care to maintain their properties in a reasonably safe condition. When they violate these rules or their duties under the law, and as a result you are hurt, they are responsible for your injuries under the legal principle known as premises liability.

To us, you are more than just another number ― you are a person in need of help. We will meticulously investigate your accident and, if necessary, utilize expert engineers to demonstrate negligence on the part of the property owner.

We believe property owners should be held responsible when their actions, or lack of actions, result in an injury to you, so contact a slip and fall attorney Westchester relies on for justice today to learn how our lawyers can help you.

What About Sidewalks?

Sidewalks can be particularly treacherous, especially if they are uneven, cracked, covered in ice or in any other way defective. However, establishing liability for a sidewalk-related slip and fall can be a bit tricky.

For instance, the law regarding legal liability may vary depending on the city where the injury occurs and whether the property abutting the sidewalk is a business, single-family home or apartment building. In any case, it is best to contact an attorney as soon as possible to learn if a viable claim exists, especially since you may only have a limited amount of time to file certain claims, including those against municipalities.
