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.

Dangerous Conditions That Can Lead to Slips or Trips and Falls

Conditions that can lead to a slip or trip and fall accidents are:

  • Wet or slippery floors.
  • Broken steps or railings.
  • Poorly lit stairwells and hallways.
  • Uneven floor surfaces or broken concrete.
  • Potholes.
  • Torn carpeting or rotting floors.
  • Slippery patches of ice or snow.

Compensation You May Receive from a Slip or Trip and Fall Injury Claim

In a successful slip or trip and fall case, you may receive an award for damages, which is compensation for both your economic and noneconomic losses.

Economic damages are for your monetary losses and expenses, such as:

  • Past, present, and future medical and rehabilitative expenses.
  • Lost wages and earning capacity, now and into the future.
  • Property damage.

Noneconomic damages, which do not have specific monetary value, may include:

  • Pain and suffering.
  • Emotional distress and anguish.
  • Loss of consortium and companionship.

The amount of compensation you may be awarded depends on factors such as how severely you were injured and whether the injury will be permanent, life-altering, or require long-term care. Some common injuries from slip or trip and falls include:
