Slip and fall accidents caused by slick floors can lead to serious, life-threatening injuries and even wrongful death. In New York, property owners are responsible for making sure their buildings and lots are free from hazards including slick floors. Obviously, floors slippery from spilled liquid, damaged plumbing, poor building maintenance, or insufficiently mopping / warning can cause someone walking through to slip and fall.
Slip-and-falls can cause painful back and neck injuries, fractures, broken bones, sprains, soft tissue damage, and even concussions. Negligent property owners or possessors — of stores, apartment buildings, hotels, and other businesses and residences — may be held responsible. At Eisenberg & Baum, our attorneys' first priority is getting you full and fair compensation for your injuries.
Successful slip-and-fall cases require a trained and speedy response to gather all possible evidence to show a property owner owed a duty to people coming onto the property, knew or should have known of a hazard, and failed to take steps to correct it. You need a skilled slip-and-fall personal injury law firm to build an effective case.
Our New York premises liability attorneys have the experience to take immediate and effective action. We will collect property records, gather maintenance records and witness accounts, find appropriate experts, and counsel you on what steps you should be taking. Most importantly, after an accident like this, you should take care of yourself first and foremost. Seek medical help immediately. Make sure to keep medical documents and records. These will be helpful in establishing the harm done to you.
