According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), each year millions of people 65 years and older fall, and one out of five falls causes serious injury. Falls can result in injuries such as:
These injuries may involve costly medical stays, doctor visits, and rehabilitation. A slip and fall victim may also bear the cost of missing time from work. If your slip and fall was the result of another person’s failure to properly maintain their property, you may be entitled to make a claim for your damages from them.
Every property owner or manager has a duty to maintain their property to avoid causing harm to visitors on their property. In some states, the duty changes depending on the status of the visitor on the property, but even trespassers have protection under the law. New York law no longer differentiates between the status of the visitor. Property owners owe all visitors to their property – whether they are invitees (a visitor to a store or business), licensees (a social visitor), or trespassers – a reasonable standard of care. A property owner must remove all hazardous conditions on their property, and have a duty to warn others of potential hazards on the property. When a property owner or manager’s failure to uphold their duty results in a slip and fall injury, they can be held legally liable for the victim’s losses.
Pursuing compensation after your slip and fall accident is very important. The money you recover will take care of your financial costs so that you can focus your energy on your recovery. A slip and fall attorney can help you put a value on your claim and ensure that the responsible parties do not escape liability. Whether your case is resolved through a settlement or it goes to trial, having a lawyer who knows the law and has experience with slip and fall cases is your best chance of getting the compensation you deserve.
