If you slipped and fell on a wet floor, the source of the liquid will be a crucial fact to be proven in a personal injury lawsuit. If the floor was wet from rain water or a spilled drink, an injury victim must prove the property manager was aware of the dangerous condition, or had ample opportunity to discover it. However, when a person slips on floor wax or other cleaning solution intentionally placed on the floor by the property manager, the injured party generally will not be required to prove the landlord had notice of the dangerous condition, because the landlord created the dangerous condition in the first place. Contact our Brooklyn slip & fall Lawyers for a free review of a wet floor accident.
Falls on the steps occur for a variety of reasons. Broken hand rails and misaligned toe plates are leading reasons for staircase falls. In addition, wet substances on steps such as cleaning solution or a spilled beverage are also responsible for a large number of staircase injuries in New York City. Call our Brooklyn fall lawyers for a free review of a serious staircase accident.
When an injury in the snow or ice, our slip & fall lawyers consult an almanac to determine the weather conditions at the time of the accident. The law generally provides a property owner with approximately four (4) hours to shovel snow and pour salt on ice following a winter storm. However, if a pause in the storm allowed maintenance workers time to attend to the snow and ice, the property owner can be held liable for injuries sustained in a fall.
Falls from a ladder can occur due to an unstable ladder, broken rung, slippery substance such as grease on the steps, and countless other dangerous conditions. When a person falls off a ladder while performing job duties including construction, maintenance, or reaching objects on a shelf, New York’s Labor Law holds the ladder owner responsible without the need to prove the defendant was on notice of the hazardous condition.

When a person trips and falls on a pot hole in the street, the City of New York may be held financially responsible for bodily injuries, lost wages and more. To have the best chance for success with the claim, the pot hole should be located within the confines of a painted crosswalk and the City should be on prior written notice of the sink hole or other dangerous condition. Adjacent building owners are generally not responsible for pot hole falls, unless the building owner or their construction workers are responsible for creating the defect in the street. A notice of claim must be filed against the City of New York and its administrative agencies within ninety (90) days of the accident in order to preserve the claim. Contact our Brooklyn trip & fall lawyers for a free analysis of a recent pot hole injury.
