Slip, Trip and Fall Injuries
You know the streets can be a dangerous place, but shouldn't you be able to expect to maintain your safety while walking down the sidewalk?
Oftentimes, slip, trip and fall injuries occur when an area is unexpectedly wet or uneven. If it can be shown that the property owner knew about or caused the unsafe condition and did nothing to fix or warn of it, he/she may be held liable for any injury incurred from the accident.

Introduction to Fall Down Accidents
In New York, there’s often a misconception that if you fall on someone else’s property you automatically are able to recover, and of course if you think about it your common sense will tell you that doesn’t make sense. In fact the law provides that if you’re an owner of a property you have a responsibility to keep it safe for those that you expect to be on the property. Naturally if you violate that responsibility and someone’s injured then they would have a claim that could be made against you for the injury and damages that they suffer as a result.
