Demonstrating Liability for Your Trip and Fall Accident
When you walk on the sidewalk, visit a store or accept an invitation to a friend’s house, you do not expect to experience serious harm due to negligence. Property owners have a duty to ensure their premises are safe for anyone they invite or allow onto the premises. If they fail to do so and a slip, trip or fall accident happens they may be liable for any injuries that occur.
For example, any property owner who fails to repair a leaking roof that consistently creates a puddle inside or outside of their property which causes someone to fall can be responsible for any injuries suffered.
Hazards That Can Cause Trips and Falls
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 800,000 people are hospitalized each year due to slip and fall injuries.
Examples of dangerous conditions that can pose a hazard include:
- Broken, raised or poorly maintained sidewalks
- Broken or missing portions of steps on a stairway
- Wet floors
- Stairwells with no handrails/broken handrails
- Parking lots with insufficient lighting
- Sidewalks and roadways with potholes
- Torn or uneven carpeting
- Cords running across floors
These are just a few examples of negligence that might have contributed to—or caused—your trip and fall accident. A personal injury lawyer from Dansker & Aspromonte Associates can help you understand your rights and collect the evidence you need to demonstrate the property owner’s liability.
Recovering Damages After a Trip and Fall Injury
It will be the goal of your legal team to determine who was ultimately responsible for your injuries. When you work with a Queens trip and fall injury lawyer from Dansker & Aspromonte Associates, they will investigate the accident scene, review all available evidence, speak with eyewitnesses and do whatever else is necessary to establish liability. From there, they will begin the process of determining the value of the damages that you have suffered.
Our responsibility as personal injury lawyers in a trip and fall case is to prove:
- The liable party owed you a duty of care.

- You experienced damages due to that negligence.

Be Aware of New York’s Statute of Limitations
New York’s statute of limitations is the state law that establishes the timeline for pursuing civil litigation. If you do not act within this timeframe, you will likely forfeit your right to seek compensation through the court system. This might leave you paying out of pocket for the bills and expenses related to your injuries.
The statute of limitations is very strict, making it essential that you act quickly. Building a strong case takes meticulous time and effort. We want to give your situation the immediate attention it deserves.
