Slip-and-fall accident liability on sidewalks can vary

As we discussed last week, slip-and-fall accidents can lead to very serious injuries. If you recall, we discussed how much a hip fracture suffered in a fall can affect your life. We know that you didn't go out for the day thinking that you were going to fall and injure yourself. We can help you to seek compensation that you deserve for the injuries you suffered.

Interestingly , New York's Administrative Code places the responsibility for sidewalk upkeep with the property owners who have property adjoining the sidewalk. This means that if you slip and fall on a sidewalk, it might not be the city that you need to turn to for compensation. We can help you to determine who you need to hold accountable for the damages you suffered after you fell on the sidewalk.

After your fall, your top priority is getting medical care. Once you have done that, you can work toward getting your premises liability claim together. That is where we come in. We can help you investigate the accident to determine who should be listed as the defendant or defendants in your case. Once we determine that information, we can move forward with filing a claim for compensation.

You don't have to try to interpret legal codes on your own. We can help you learn about the options you have for seeking compensation. If you are awarded compensation, you can reduce the financial impact of the accident. Compensation can help you cover the medical costs and lost wages that were caused by the injuries you suffered when you fell.
