Start Determining if You Have a Case
Property owners, landlords, tenants, certain contractors, and even the City of New York are required to act reasonably to maintain walkways, sidewalks, and grounds so that pedestrians do not get injured on their property. However, not every slip or trip that causes injury warrants a claim or lawsuit.
For a successful trip or slip and fall lawsuit, you must have been injured on someone else’s property because of the negligence of a responsible party. Sometimes there are multiple parties who are responsible, such as if the property is owned jointly, if tenants were also in control of the property, if a contractor did construction work in a dangerous or defective manner or if management companies are involved. In a claim or lawsuit, you would look to prove that at least one or more parties are to blame for your injuries.
A fall to the ground after a slip or trip is not required in order to have a claim or lawsuit. In some instances, a severe injury can be sustained even if you do not actually fall.
In cases involving injuries resulting from a slip or trip on a public sidewalk or in the roadway, there are special deadlines that severely limit the time you have to bring a claim. If you have been injured on a sidewalk or roadway in New York City, you must act immediately so as not to jeopardize your rights.
