Slip & Fall Lawyer in New York

Although these cases receive a category of their own, they really belong to a larger legal category called “premises liability.” Each year, thousands of slip and fall cases occur across the country.

Even though the name sounds harmless in nature, a slip and fall because of the carelessness of a property owner can cause a number of long term consequences such as:

  • Permanent or partial physical disability
  • Inability to work for months at a time or to perform regular job duties
  • Extensive medical expenses
  • Lost time with friends and family
  • An inability to engage in your favorite hobbies

Unfortunately, because of the large amount of complexity surrounding these types of cases, determining fault is a difficult task for a slip and fall lawyer. At Harnick & Harnick, however, we have 90 years of experience helping slip and fall victims pursue their cases in court. After you contact us, we will be happy to review all the details of your case, and if we believe it’s valid, we will aggressively pursue it in court.

Do You Have a Valid Need for an Injury Lawyer in New York?

These types of cases are difficult to prove in court because the law may vary, depending on the property conditions leading to the cause of the accident. To prove your case, the accident lawyer in New York representing you will need to do the following:

  • Demonstrate the property owner holds legal responsibility for the unsafe condition (by spilling something and failing to clean it up)
  • Show the property owner had knowledge of the condition but did not take reasonable precautions to fix it (by cleaning it up or posting a warning sign, for example)
  • Establish that a reasonable person would have found the problem and corrected it, and that by extension, the property owner should have taken such action

Examples of Valid Slip and Fall Lawyer case

We can’t tell you that your case is valid until we examine the unique circumstances which surround it. Some examples of slip and fall cases that hold up in court include:

  • A misting system in a grocery store sprays produce to keep it wet and fresh, but also sprays the floor. No warning is made to customers, and one slips, falls, and breaks an arm.
  • A motorist stops at a public rest area maintained by the state. The sidewalk has shifted and is slightly higher at one point. The motorist hits their toe, trips, and falls forward, breaking their wrist. Even though it was reported, the state fails to fix the sidewalk one year later.
  • A retail store maintains most of its parking lot well, but after the winter thaw, has a couple potholes it failed to fill in. At night, a customer steps into one of the potholes and twists and breaks their ankle, causing severe pain and lost time from work.
