Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents

It is the obligation of a property owner to maintain a property to the best of their ability. If slip and fall attorneys in Brooklyn NY can prove negligence in that the owner knew or should have known about a dangerous condition, but ignored it, you may be compensated in the event of a slip and fall.

There are several types of accidents including, but not limited to:

  • Slippery surfaces;
  • Stairway accidents;
  • Fall from a balcony;
  • Parking ramp falls;
  • Sidewalk falls;
  • Bathtub, shower, or bathroom falls;
  • Construction site defects that lead to a fall;
  • Road defects that lead to a fall; and
  • Objects left on a floor (i.e. wires, cables, ropes, etc.).

Falling on Ice or Snow in New York

New York’s winters can be beautiful, but also very dangerous. It is the duty of a property owner to make sure their parking lots, sidewalks, and other areas of the property are maintained and ensure that any ice or snow is removed. The owners will have a certain amount of time to do this. So if you fell during a storm, there may be no liability. Accumulated ice or snow, ice patches from refreezing, or a total failure to maintain the property could be grounds for a claim.

Gathering Evidence

If you have been injured in a slip and fall, the Brooklyn slip and fall attorneys at Laurence C. Tarowsky Attorney At Law may ask you about any evidence you have.

If possible, try to:

  • Take photographs of the scene, your clothing, and injuries;
  • Get the contact details for any witnesses; and,
  • File an accident report

You may also want to place your shoes that you were wearing at the time of the fall in a plastic, sealable bag. These could be used in your defense. If you cannot obtain any evidence, we are prepared to work as best as possible to get the information needed. Do keep in mind that the longer you wait to reach out to our firm, the more difficult it may be to get you the compensation you really deserve.
