Bronx Slip And Fall Lawyer

Whether it is a retail establishment, a restaurant, or even an outdoor venue or event, Bronx residents spend plenty of time on property other than their own. When running errands or simply enjoying recreational time, we generally do not think much about the potential for life-changing accidents we could encounter.

In a massive city like New York, accidents can happen anywhere. Unfortunately, slip and fall accidents are no different. These accidents are so common that they are second only to auto crashes as the most common accidents in the U.S. Slip and falls, like almost any accident, usually happen as the result of negligence in one form or another. This can be negligence on the part of the property owner, the business or event management, or even the staff scheduled to work at that location on that date.

Whether it is a grocery store, department store, concert venue, or used car lot, when you visit another person’s property, they owe you a duty of care. Essentially, this duty of care is to keep the premises safe and clean for you and other visitors to engage in their activities without fear of injury. Unfortunately, this duty of care is not always enforced.

At Shulman & Hill, our attorneys can leverage their experience to help you pursue any financial compensation you may be entitled to. Contact us today for a free legal consultation to learn more.

How Might a Bronx Slip and Fall Accident Happen?

Under New York premises liability laws, Bronx property owners are expected to take reasonable care to monitor and remove any hazards that may have the potential to injure visitors. When property owners do not and someone is injured in a slip or fall accident, the property owner may be held liable.

Slip and fall accidents can include tripping, walking into hazards, or even falling downstairs. Some common causes of slip and fall accidents include:

Weather

Rain, snow, or ice that has been tracked in via entryways can present a serious hazard if not dried or cordoned off quickly. Snow and ice in the parking lots of shopping centers and other businesses that have not been properly cleared and salted can become a danger as well. Ultimately, both can lead to severe injuries.

Work Sites

Whether you are a laborer or just a pedestrian passing by, worksites are filled with a wide array of hazards. Accidents that happen as a result of falling debris or tools can also be considered slip and falls. This extends to items falling from great heights like windows and scaffolding as well.

Damaged/Wet Floors

Floors that are uneven or in generally poor condition can cause people to trip and fall forward. Tiles that are cracked, chipped, broken, or even missing may also cause accidents. Thresholds between carpeted areas and smooth floors and rugs can also be hazardous if not secured properly. Retail establishments and other locations with smooth floors can become very slippery if transient liquids such as water, beverages, grease, oil, or other fluids are not cleaned up quickly. These issues can arise outside in parking lots and vehicle areas like gas stations and convenience stores as well.

What Kinds of Injuries are Possible in Slip and Falls in the Bronx?

If a location is not well-maintained, it may be prone to conditions that cause injuries. There are a number of different injuries one may suffer, but most will fall into a few main categories. These include:

Soft Tissue Injuries

Soft tissue injuries can include ligament tears, spinal cord injuries, lacerations, and abrasions. Ligament tears and spinal cord injuries, in particular, can be extremely debilitating and require extensive treatment, including surgery.

Fractures & Broken Bones

Much of the damage from a slip and fall accident comes from the fall itself. In many cases, that fall is often onto very hard flooring or even concrete. These falls onto hard surfaces often lead to broken bones and fractures. The most common locations are the ribs and hips as well as hands and arms from trying to prevent the fall.

Spine & Head Injuries

These are frequently the most devastating injuries. Concussions, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage, and nerve damage are just some of the devastating consequences of injuries in this category. These injuries often occur if the victim hits their head while falling (or if they strike the ground particularly hard during the fall).

Unfortunately, these injuries can have lifelong after-effects and can require years of recovery and rehab to fully recover from. As one might expect, some of the most severe cases lead to permanent damage like paralysis or permanent nerve damage.
