SLIP/TRIP AND FALL ACCIDENTS
Property Owners have a non-delegable duty to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition. One of the most common forms of accidents is a slip/trip and fall due to obstructed, cracked, uneven, raised, depressed, missing portions thereof, deteriorated sidewalks, broken and unleveled steps, missing handrails, improperly installed mats and rugs, and failure to remove snow and ice. In stores, consumers may slip/trip and fall on water, boxes or products left negligently on the floor creating a hazardous condition.
In addition, slip/trip and fall accidents occur due to obstructed, cracked, uneven, raised, depressed, missing portions thereof, potholes, and/or deteriorated roadways. In lawsuits against the City of New York, there are time-sensitive documents that must be filed. Contact Robert J. Renna, P.C., who has recovered millions of dollars for individuals who have sustained injuries as a result of a slip/trip and fall.
