Slip and Fall Accident Attorney in New York's Capital Region

Schenectady Premises Liability Lawyer Helps Victims of Property Negligence

As guests, visitors, or tenants of a commercial or residential property, we are protected by New York laws to ensure safe conditions, secure environments, and unhazardous living circumstances. As a tenant of an apartment building, you would expect your landlord to warn you of crumbling stairs. As a visitor of a shopping mall, you would expect property managers to warn you of slippery surfaces. As a member of a health club, you would expect maintenance crews to alert you of any exposed electrical wires.

Unfortunately, in many circumstances, property owners fail to make environments safe for visitors, guests, and tenants alike and potentially fatal injuries occur. Slip and fall accidents occur when an individual slips or trips and falls as a result of a dangerous condition on someone else’s property that was ignored.

Slip and fall accidents can often be tough cases to take on, simply because injuries could range from contusions and bruises to spinal cord injuries, paralysis, head trauma, and in some worst case scenarios, even wrongful death.

Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents in Schenectady

By negligence laws, homeowners, property owners, and commercial business owners alike have a responsibility to keep their property in a reasonably safe condition for visitors. Yet, due to negligent property maintenance, slip and fall injuries are still a common occurrence in Schenectady.

Slip or trip and fall accidents can be caused by a number of causes, including:

  • Wet floors, caused by rain, snow, sleet, grease that has not been properly marked or cleaned up
  • Uneven flooring
  • Unstable roofing, causing falling objects from high levels
  • Poor lighting
  • Gaps or holes in ground
  • Crumbling stairs, ladders, or pathways
  • Exposed electrical wiring
  • Obstructed walkways

You may have been harmed by one of the above causes, and sustained injuries. Your injuries, harms, or damages deserve to be answered and justified. Though the negligence of another party caused your injuries, proving liability in the state of New York can often be difficult and complex.

This is why it is crucial for your well-being to consult experienced, trusted, and committed attorneys. Do not trust in an inexperienced attorney to handle your personal injury as a result of a slip and fall accident. Too much is on the line for you to trust in someone who doesn’t know the law, or how to navigate the legal system.
