Manhattan slip and fall lawyer
Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents aren’t uncommon in or around Manhattan. Injuries aren’t serious most of the time. A bruised ego might be the worst of them. On occasion, injuries could be serious and result in large medical bills, lost time at work and possibly even a permanent disability. When a slip or trip injury occurs on property owned or occupied by somebody else, and you’re seriously injured, you might have a valid and compensable injury claim. That’s when you’ll want to contact Manhattan slip and fall attorney Marc Albert, for a free consultation and case evaluation.

Causes of slip and fall accidents
These types of accidents can occur in a wide variety of ways. They might involve slips and trips caused by:

  • Wet surfaces
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Floor mats that slip
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Foreign substances on floors
  • Obstructions like merchandise on floors
  • Pot holes in parking lots
  • Improper or inadequate snow and ice removal

Slipping and tripping injuries
In a slip, the victim usually falls backward. In a trip, he or she ordinarily falls forward. The same as there is a wide variety of slipping and tripping accidents, there is also a wide range of slipping and tripping injuries. Those might include:

  • Skull fractures
  • Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries
  • Severe back injuries
  • Hand, arm and shoulder fractures
  • A fractured pelvis or hip
  • Rib and collarbone fractures
  • Facial and dental injuries

The duty of reasonable care
New York law requires owners and occupiers of land to use reasonable care in the maintenance of their property, and keep it free from unreasonable risks of harm. When they knew or should have known of a dangerous condition on their property and failed to repair it, or take proper steps to warn a person of that dangerous condition, they can be held liable for injuries under the law of negligence.

As a defense to a slip or trip case, the insurer might state that the owner or occupier had no knowledge of the danger. That’s called the notice defense. Issues involving how long the condition existed, and other circumstances raise questions of whether the owner or occupier should have had notice of it.

When notice isn’t needed
Sometimes the injured person need not show that the owner or occupier of the premises had notice of a dangerous condition. If the owner or occupier performed an affirmative act to create the dangerous condition, notice need not be shown. A common example of an affirmative act is when a downspout is installed that directs water to a sidewalk that freezes. The owner or occupier might state that he had no notice of the ice, but liability can still be proved after a slip and fall for placing the downspout on a sidewalk that freezes.

Thorough preparation wins slipping and tripping cases
Insurance companies don’t see slipping and tripping injuries as the types of cases that the injured person has a likelihood of prevailing in. Many cases are lost on the notice issue before they ever go to trial, but an experienced and aggressive attorney like Marc Albert knows that thorough preparation of these cases before ever walking up the courthouse steps to file a lawsuit is the key to getting the serious attention of the insurance company.

Very restrictive time limitations might exist on your case, especially if you fell on property that’s publicly owned. If you’ve been injured in a slipping or tripping accident in or around Manhattan, don’t just say you’re clumsy, and don’t assume it’s your fault. Contact Manhattan slip and fall attorney Marc Albert right away at 855-252-3788, and ask to arrange for a free consultation and case evaluation. He’s been remarkably successful in representing slip and fall and trip and fall victims. Insurance companies, their attorneys, judges and jurors know him and respect him.
