Slips And Trips Can Cause Very Serious Injuries

When people say they slipped or tripped, it might not sound that serious. How many times have you stubbed your toe or stumbled and kept on walking? It happens often without incident, but you can suffer very serious injuries if you land too hard or on the wrong spot on your body.

The O'Connor Law Firm can help you pursue the money you need to pay for medical bills or cover your wages while you are recovering and cannot work. I have been an attorney for more than 17 years and successfully litigated countless premises liability cases involving slip-and-fall accidents.

When Might Someone Else Be Liable For Your Slip Or Trip?

The reality is that some falls are not compensable, because they resulted solely from inattention or clumsiness. How do you know when a property owner, operator or the City of New York may be liable for your injuries? Here are a few possible examples:

  • Uneven or cracked sidewalks
  • Inadequate outdoor lighting
  • Improper removal of ice or snow
  • No warning signs on wet floors
  • Debris in a walkway
  • Poorly maintained staircases
  • Too much floor wax or polish
  • No handrails in potentially hazardous areas
  • Uneven transitions between flooring
  • Surfaces around a pool without proper "no skid" treatment
