Were you minding your own business, strolling through a mall and suddenly fell flat on your back? You know you were just milling through stores and keeping your eyes in front of you, but then, something was slippery and you fell. As you get up, you realize you’re hip hurts a lot and you may need to go see the doctor. You also notice that you’re standing in a puddle and there isn’t any kind of warning signs around you to alert you that the floor is wet.
If this sounds like a scenario that you’ve been through, our Manhattan slip-and-fall attorneys can help you. All property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises kept to a certain level of care and, if they fail to do this, they can be held liable for injuries that occur on their property.
Most slip-and-fall injuries occur in the following ways:
- Wet floors
- Slippery stairs
- Poorly maintained grounds
- Unmarked obstacles
- Cracked or uneven sidewalk
