New York Slip & Fall Accident Attorneys

Learn About Your Right to Compensation

Slip-and-fall accidents are quite common and can happen anywhere. They are usually caused by unsafe walking surfaces that are wet, uneven, or covered in ice and snow. Too often, slip-and-falls result in serious injuries that can leave individuals struggling with life-altering injuries or even disabled. It is the responsibility of property owners to keep their property reasonably safe for guests, visitors, customers, employees, tenants, and other people lawfully on the property. People do not always know how safe a surface is and often end up injured because of property owners breaching their duty of care.

Common Slip & Fall Accidents

If your slip-and-fall injury occurred on someone else's property that was open to the public, there is a high chance that the property owner violated their expected duty of care and may owe you compensation. It is a property manager's duty to warn guests of the hazards in the area and take precaution to mitigate risks wherever possible.

Many slip-and-fall accidents occur in:

  • Private homes, apartment complexes, and condominiums
  • Grocery stores, large department stores, and shopping centers
  • Public places, parking lots, and sidewalks

At Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo & Plotkin LLP, our New York slip-and-fall lawyers have successfully litigated numerous cases of this type and know where to start investigating in order to determine all of the parties liable for a victim's injuries.

Proving Your Case

In order to receive compensation for your injuries after a slip, trip, or fall, you will need to show that the property owner owed you a duty of care and that this duty of care was breached. You will also need to show that, as a result of the breach of the duty of care, you were injured and suffered measurable damages.

For example, a commercial property owner, such as a grocery store owner, owes the public a duty of care, meaning they are required to take reasonable steps to maintain the property and address, fix, or warn of any dangerous conditions that could pose a reasonable threat of harm to guests. If they fail to do this, and you are injured as a result, you can seek compensation from the store owner’s commercial property insurance company.
