      Injured in a Slip, Trip, or Fall Accident?

      Falls can happen anywhere, but most are completely preventable. When an employer or property owner fails to maintain a safe premises, they can be held liable for any resulting injuries. Slip, trip, and fall cases can result in serious, catastrophic injuries.

      At Injured 914, our White Plains slip and fall lawyers have been winning compensation for accident victims for over 35 years. We have obtained millions on behalf of our clients and will fight to maximize your recovery. Contact our office today at (914) 368-7168 for a free consultation.

      Slip and Fall Injury Statistics

      The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that one in five falls results in a serious injury requiring hospitalization. Tragically, falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries.

      Common injuries in slip and fall cases include:

      • Ankle fractures
      • Broken Bones
      • Head injuries
      • Traumatic brain injury
      • Hip fractures
      • Wrist and arm injuries
      • Back injuries

      Workplace Slip and Fall Injuries

      The National Safety Council regularly ranks falls as a leading cause of preventable injury-related death and non-fatal injuries in the United States. Falls are also a leading cause of injury and death on worksites across the United States. Construction workers are most at risk for injuries related to falls. Tens of thousands of workers are injured each year because of negligence or inadequate safety regulations.

      Adhering to industry safety standards put forth by regulatory agencies such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) would save tens of thousands of lives. According to OSHA, the most frequently cited standards violations were related to falls, including failure to provide adequate fall protection, lack of scaffolding safety measures, and failure to follow ladder guidelines. If employers followed safety guidelines, including providing the right equipment and training employees on fall prevention, there would be far fewer work-related injuries and deaths.

      Grocery and Department Store Slip, Trip, and Fall Cases

      Nobody expects to get injured while grocery shopping, but it happens frequently. When a liquid gets spilled and never cleaned up despite the store being notified of the hazard or a pallet gets left in the middle of an aisle, serious injury can result.

      Other common causes of retail slip and fall cases noted by the CDC include:

      • Slippery surfaces caused by spills
      • Inclement weather such as ice, snow, or rain
      • Tripping caused by loose mats or rugs
      • Boxes or containers creating obstructed walkways
      • Poor lighting
      • Poorly maintained walking surfaces (e.g. cords and hoses left out, or surface irregularities such as ripped or bumpy carpet)

      Property owners must be held liable when they fail to provide a safe premises for retail shoppers. Whether you were injured at a grocery store, supermarket, clothing store, or convenience shop, we can help. You should never have to pay for someone else’s negligence.

      Who Is Held Liable in a Slip and Fall Accident?

      If you were injured in a slip or fall accident due to dangerous conditions at someone else’s property, the property owner can be held liable. According to New York state law regarding premises liability cases, it must be proven that the owner knew about the danger and failed to do anything about it, or that he or she should have known about the danger.

      Actual and Constructive Notice

      The first type of notice is called “Actual Notice,” where it can be proven that the property owner was fully aware of the hazard that ended up causing the slip or fall accident, and failed to fix the danger or properly warn visitors about it.

      However, it can be more difficult to prove that the owner had full knowledge of something and was negligent. Instead, your slip and fall lawyer can also attempt to prove “constructive notice,” which means that the danger was so obvious that the property owner should have known about the hazard.

      Homeowner and Business Owner Liability

      Property owners are expected to regularly inspect their property, identify potentially dangerous conditions, and correct them. The duty to keep a property in a reasonably safe condition for guests and customers applies to both homeowners and business owners or occupants. In order to prove liability, you would need to show that the property owner owed you a duty of care and breached that duty of care by failing to keep the property free from hazards that they knew or should have known about.

      Attractive Nuisances

      While under most circumstances, a homeowner or business owner does not owe a duty of care to a trespasser, there are some exceptions. One of the most notable exceptions is the attractive nuisance doctrine. Under this doctrine, a landowner may be held liable for injuries to a child even if they were a trespasser.

      Common objects or conditions that may be considered attractive nuisances include:

      • Swimming pools
      • Trampolines
      • Swings and playground equipment
      • Construction sites
      • Abandoned vehicles
      • Exposed powerlines

      If your child was injured while trespassing on another person’s property, under certain conditions, the landowner may still be held liable. To determine whether the property contained an attractive nuisance, contact our office to discuss your case with a White Plains slip and fall lawyer.

      How Much Compensation Can I Recover in a Slip and Fall Case?

      The outcome of injury cases varies widely and depends on the circumstances of the accident and the severity of the injuries. However, our slip and fall lawyers know how to fight for the maximum amount of compensation available in your case so that you can make a full recovery.

      Our legal team can pursue damages on your behalf for the following:

      • Medical bills for injuries sustained in the slip, trip, or fall accident
      • Bills associated with ongoing care and/or therapy
      • Lost income from being unable to work
      • Pain and suffering

      Every slip, trip, and fall case is unique, which is why it is essential to discuss your case with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Whether you were injured on someone else’s property or you lost a loved one due to another person’s negligence, our White Plains slip and fall lawyers may be able to help.

      Hi Mr.John LeifertI just wanted to shoot you a quick note to thank you again for your services. My car accident, I was incredibly stressed the full dealing with insurance companies and sorting out what was my next step towards my injuries. Especially since it was my first time involved in any type of traffic accident, I was so lost and confused!Luckily I discovered your service at the perfect timing. You were able to make sense of the multiple demand letter requests, photo evidence, and medical documents that kept my case in track. You always make sure to follow up with me. I'm so happy we were able to receive a successful outcome. Good luck to you and your associates and thank you again.Miguel Perez

      When I needed to take on a leading US automaker, I turned to the White Plains law firm of Denlea & Carton and their commercial litigation team. They filed an action in Federal Court and after three years of hard fought litigation, they helped me to obtain a great result ! Not only for myself, but for consumers around the country. Jeff, Jim and everyone at the firm were superb. They communicated with me regularly, and ensured that I understood everything that was happening. I couldn’t be happier about my representation. If you need a firm that gets great results, and isn’t afraid to go up against large corporations, look no further than Denlea & Carton!

      I researched quite a few firms before deciding on Denlea & Carton, and I couldn’t be happier that I did. They surpassed my expectations in every respect. They were kind, patient, and extremely knowledgeable. They treated my case as if it was their own, and never backed down from the fight with the defendant until they obtained an incredible result for me. There is a difference between law firms, and I’m glad I took the time to realize it. I would recommend Jim and Jeff (and everyone else who helped me) without hesitation. They’re terrific!
