FAQs

Where Am I Most a Risk of a Slip and Fall/Premises Liability Accident?

A slip and fall can happen on any property or location where a property manager or owner fails to do regular upkeep and maintenance. However, the most common causes and locations include:

  • Wet floors, spilled liquids, or freshly waxed surfaces in a store or restaurant
  • Poorly maintained pavement, including uneven concrete or icy sidewalks
  • Wet floors near swimming pools
  • Broken or poorly maintenance stairs in buildings, such as apartment complexes, malls, or movie theaters

Make no mistake: all these scenarios can lead to severe injuries, including traumatic brain injury, broken bones, dislocations and fractures, spinal cord injuries, concussions, and more.

Premises liability cases also include instances in which a property owner or manager failed to provide reasonable security and safety measures for visitors. For example, if you were the victim of a criminal assault in a parking lot that did not have adequate lighting or security, you may be able to pursue a premises liability claim against the property owner of that parking lot.

What Damages Could I Recover From My Slip and Fall Lawsuit?

Damages—or the money you could recover in your lawsuit—for slip and fall cases fall into two categories:

Economic: These damages compensate for a slip and fall victim to the monetary cost of their accident. These damages include past or future medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning potential, and more.

Non-Economic: These damages compensate the victim for less financially tangible, but equally as important losses after the accident. These could include any mental anguish, emotional distress, trauma, disfigurement, or loss of life’s enjoyments that resulted from the slip and fall accident.

However, it is important to remember that each slip and fall case is different. The unique details of your case will ultimately determine the damages you could recover. To learn what your case could be worth, call 1.800.HURT.511 for a free case evaluation with a Bronx slip and fall attorney.

What Should I Do If I Was the Victim of a Slip and Fall?

Whether you were hurt in a parking lot or in a supermarket, there are a few steps you should take after your slip and fall to maximize your chances of a successful claim.

After your slip and fall, the most important thing to do is seek immediate medical care for your injuries. If possible, take photos of the scene of your accident. If you slipped on a wet floor that wasn’t marked by a wet floor sign, for example, take photos or videos of the puddle. If any witnesses saw your accident, collect their contact information. Be sure to also take photos of any visible injuries and make copies of all medical records that describe your injury.

All of this evidence could be crucial in helping your slip and fall attorney prove fault on the part of the property owner—and recovering the maximum compensation you are entitled to.

How Much Time Do I Have to Pursue a Lawsuit After My Slip and Fall?

For slip and fall cases and premises liability suits in New York State, the time limit you have to seek a lawsuit is three years from the date of your accident. While this may seem like plenty of time to file a suit, you shouldn’t hesitate to pursue legal action immediately after your slip and fall.

That’s because the longer you wait to reach out to a lawyer, the more likely it is that important evidence, such as photographic or video evidence of wet floors, uneven flooring, or defective staircases or elevators, will be lost. This evidence can be essential for proving fault and negligence on the part of a property or business owner.

After you call 911, call 1.800.HURT.511 to improve your chances of recovering a successful verdict and the maximum compensation you’re entitled to.
