Slip and Fall Accidents

Injuries caused by slip and falls are entirely too common and can cause serious harm. These falls can cause significant injuries including hip fractures, traumatic brain injuries and other non-intentional injuries that could lead to death.

Many factors come into play when it comes to slip and fall accidents, however there are some locations where the chances of these accidents happening are much greater. Examples of these locations are,

  • Stairs
  • Hotels
  • Restaurants
  • Work Places
  • Grocery Stores

Anything from a slippery floor to steep steps can cause these injuries but this can be prevented with proper maintenance and by implementing safety protocols for visitors. If there is a hazard that is out of the control of the property owner or renter visitors should be issued a warning.

When you are injured due to a serious slip and fall accident, you are able to make a personal injury claim against the person who owns the property or the person renting and is responsible for the property maintenance. In order to file a slip and fall claim you need to be able to show that the property manager had a legal obligation to make the property safe and that they didn't fulfill that obligation.

Also, you need to be able to show that you have suffered harm as a result of these actions. Kafko Schnitzer, LLP can help you navigate this complex process and make your case for damages in Bronx, New York.
