Slip and Fall Accidents — Proving Liability for Unsafe Premises
It’s not as simple as collecting a check for slipping on a puddle of liquid in a grocery store. To prevail in a premises liability claim, the plaintiff must show that the owner was aware of a hazard and ignored it or should have known and failed to address it. The victim is also presumed to have some “watch your step” responsibility — a crack on a sidewalk or a visible accumulation of ice on a sidewalk may not constitute a “dangerous condition.”
Nonetheless, seemingly minor hazards can lead to serious falling accidents — broken hips, wrists, elbows, or ankles; lacerations and disfigurement; even head injuries. The Law Offices of Eugene K. Hollander has helped clients recover in a variety of slip and fall cases:
- Construction defects and code violations
- Inadequate lighting
- Holes or gaps in pavement
- Icy steps, broken steps, or missing railings
- Slick floors with no warning sign
In a free case evaluation, our slip and fall attorneys can give an honest appraisal of your potential claim.
