Premises Liability in Slip and Fall Accidents
The negligence of New York property owners can serve to create a number of dangerous conditions, each of which may lead to a slip and fall accident. Fortunately, premises liability laws maintain that property owners can be held responsible if they have not properly maintained a safe atmosphere for guests. If you have been injured due to the negligence of a property owner in New York, the attorneys at Hach & Rose, LLP, may help you pursue the funds you need for recovery from the responsible parties.
Dangerous Conditions That May Contribute to Slip and Fall Accidents
When property owners do not maintain the safety of their property, they are putting their guests at risk of a number of slip and fall accidents. A property owner can most likely be held financially responsible for the accident if a guest sustains an injury because of any of the following:
- Slick flooring
- Loose or uneven carpeting
- Cracked sidewalks
- Insufficient lighting
- Debris or other walkway obstructions
The injuries sustained in slip and fall accidents can be dangerous, oftentimes necessitating expensive medical and rehabilitative care. To address the financial burden and physical hardship of a slip and fall accident, negligent property owners may be held liable for any resulting damages.
