Staten Island Slip and Fall Lawyer
Was your slip and fall the result of negligence?
If you have had a serious slip and fall injury, you know that it’s not a matter to be taken lightly. Extremely serious injuries can result including broken bones; head, neck, brain, and spinal injuries; chipped and broken teeth; and torn and dislocated joints. New York State premises liability laws require that property owners make certain that their properties are safe for all who use them, including residents, customers, employees, and visitors.
If a dangerous condition develops because a property owner has not maintained the property satisfactorily, or if a dangerous condition exists and adequate warnings have not been posted, any person who is injured on that property may be able to seek damages against the property owner. Your right to damages may exist even when the property is owned by a government entity, such as the City of New York.
Wet floors, broken stairs, uneven walkways, construction debris, and other conditions can lead to a serious slip and fall accident. If you become the victim of this kind of accident, you should quickly act to protect yourself and any potential liability claim. Report the accident to the police or responsible security staff. Take down the names and contact information of any witnesses. If possible, take a photograph of the damaged or neglected condition responsible for your fall. Take stock of your physical situation as well: if your injuries need immediate attention, seek appropriate medical help without delay. But even if your injuries seem minor, it might be prudent to see a doctor as soon as possible. Sometimes the injuries caused by a hard fall don’t show up immediately.
You should then contact a reputable Staten Island attorney with experience in slip and fall injury cases. We can help you determine if legal action is warranted, and let you know what the process will involve.
