Premises Liability Slip & Fall Lawyer NYC

Some falls are entirely the fault of the accident victim through carelessness or clumsiness, but many tumbles can be directly attributed to the negligence of another party. When a property owner knows about conditions on the property that could cause a guest or customer to slip or trip but does not take any reasonable precaution to prevent such an accident, he or she can be found liable for the ensuing injuries. To discuss your accident and learn whether or not you have grounds to file a premises liability claim, contact The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny to speak to a New York City personal injury lawyer.

Injuries Suffered In Slip-And-Fall Accidents

While many slip-and-fall accident victims walk away with nothing worse than minor bruises, this type of accident can cause life-changing injuries. Broken bones are common, particularly among the elderly who are prone to suffer serious hip fractures.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls are the cause of more than one out of every five spine injuries, including paraplegia and quadriplegia. The CDC also reports that 35.2 percent of all new cases of traumatic brain injury every year are attributable to falls.

Slip-and-fall accidents can occur virtually anywhere: while shopping in a grocery store, eating in a restaurant, or walking on the deck of a ferry. The New York City Department of Buildings reports that worker falls are the leading type of construction accidents citywide, comprising 42 percent of all reported accidents in 2010. Cracked sidewalks pose another major fall hazard. The Big Apple Pothole and Sidewalk Protection Committee has cataloged more than 700,000 sidewalk defects that pose tripping risks. Wherever your accident took place, if someone else is at fault, we want to help you take legal action to get fair financial compensation for your injuries.
