Living in New York, whether in the city or the suburbs, people face slip and fall hazards every day. Sidewalks, stores, escalators, elevators, stairs, walkways, subways, and buildings all present many different types of dangers. Throughout New York City, cracks, large construction defects and holes exist without proper warning signs, and these may cause pedestrian accidents.
Garbage and debris as well as wet floors present the risk of serious injury. While it is true that we all have a responsibility to be careful where we are walking, it is true that individuals and businesses that own property are in the best situation to make walkways, hallways, passageways, aisles, stairs, and other areas of ingress and egress safe for all.
We understand how the negligence of others causes and/or contributes to the falls of people, and we go to court every day to prove those causes.
