The term “slip and fall” is the legal way to describe when someone was injured due to having slipped, fallen, tripped or stumbled on someone else’s property, whether private premises of public land.
Slip and fall accidents happen in all types of circumstances in New York—on a slippery sidewalk in front of a Brooklyn apartment building, on broken floor tiles in a Long Island shopping mall, on a poorly lit Central Park path or newly mopped Manhattan museum floor. If you slipped and fell down on someone else’s property, the owner is liable for your injuries, including medical bills and lost wages if you can’t work as you recover. With the help of a determined New York slip and fall attorney, you may be able to get a significant settlement from the negligent property owner’s premises liability insurance.
