Slip and Fall

Home | Slip and Fall

Slip and fall incidents are classified under the category of personal injury. If someone fell and injured themselves due to no fault of their own, they could be entitled to compensation for their injury. However, it is essential to note that not all slip and fall accidents are considered personal injury accidents that also result in compensation.

Several factors are considered when a slip and fall has occurred on public property or someone else’s premises. To determine if a slip and fall accident claim can be pursued, it is advised to consult with an attorney who is familiar with personal injury law in Sayville, NY, and Suffolk County, New York.

To successfully win a slip and fall claim, the accident must have resulted from negligence or carelessness in providing a safe environment.

Landowners, property owners, and managers have to ensure that their property or premises are free from hazardous conditions. The property owner or manager also must have reasonably known or been aware that the dangerous situation existed and did not act to prevent potential harm. For instance, if someone falls and gets injured due to a spilled liquid in a grocery store aisle on the floor for quite some time, that could be grounds for a personal injury claim.

However, several determinants must fall into place for a viable slip-and-fall case claim. Individuals also have a responsibility to practice care.

If the liquid on the floor is a dark color and visible, a claimant may not have enough to go on to seek damages. On the other hand, if their line of vision is obstructed by a shopping cart, that could hold weight. For this reason, it is highly recommended to talk to a knowledgeable attorney who can assess your specific case and advise whether your claim is feasible.
