Service You Can Rely On After A Slip-And-Fall

What Are The Most Common Slip-And-Fall Injuries?
A variety of factors can trigger a slip-and-fall, from poorly maintained sidewalks to slippery ground. Even a seemingly minor slipping, tripping or falling incident can result in lifelong injuries that wrack up expensive medical bills. Some of the most common conditions that we see in our clients include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Neck injuries
- Spinal cord damage
- Hip injuries
- Broken bones
- Partial or total paralysis
- Fatal injuries
Property owners have an obligation to keep their premises safe for visitors; if they do not, you have the right to hold them accountable through legal action. Remember, many injuries do not appear until weeks or months after an accident. Even if it has been a while since your slip, trip or fall, you have up to three years to file a personal injury claim under the state’s statute of limitations.
What To Know About Comparative Negligence
New York is a comparative negligence state. This means that even if a victim shares partial fault for their accident, they can recover compensation for their damages. The amount of compensation available is proportionate to the percentage of fault contributed by the victim. For example, if a court rules that the victim is 50% at fault, the victim can recover up to 50% of the compensation for their damages.
