Slip and fall accidents commonly result from uneven surfaces. These include torn carpeting, loose floorboards, clutter, potholes, and defective or uneven sidewalks. Other causes include wet floors, improper footwear, hazardous weather conditions like ice and snow, and improper training for construction workers or others who navigate uneven ground or narrow pathways on a regular basis.
Severe injuries may result from slip and fall accidents. These include broken bones, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, internal hemorrhaging, and other debilitating medical conditions. Whether the incident occurred in residential or commercial property, you can file a personal injury claim to seek compensation from those responsible for your injuries.
In slip and fall accidents, a number of people may be held liable:
Depending on the situation, you will need to prove that the person responsible created the condition that caused your fall. However, if this is not the case, you may try to prove that the owner of the property knew the condition existed and failed to correct it, or that the condition existed for long enough that the owner must have discovered it. If the property owner negligently failed to act to prevent your incident, you can sue for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages.
After a slip and fall accident, it is important to begin gathering evidence to use in court. This may include pictures of the scene, witness statements, and medical records. At Michael A. Fakhoury, ESQ., PC, our experienced Fishkill personal injury attorney can investigate your incident and build your case.
Our firm is passionate about helping clients pursue the financial settlement they deserve. If you were injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, we can represent you in court. It is important to write down everything you can remember about the incident and to keep copies of your medical records. This will strengthen your case.
