We’re There For Slip and Falls, and Trip and Falls

Many people believe that if they fell on someone else’s property and sustained an injury, then someone must be responsible. The truth is that whether there is a case usually depends on the finding of negligence. Slip and Falls can happen anywhere, but negligence can be a common cause of injury. The first question is usually what caused you to fall. Was there a dangerous and/or defection condition? Who was responsible for maintaining that area? Did that know or should they have known of that condition? Did someone create the condition? Overall, there is a wide array of factors that may help determine fault. Once these questions are answered then the burden shifts back to the injured person to show they were not partially at fault. The legal experts of D’Agostino & Associates can help sort through the details of the case, and fight for you.

Trip & Fall Cases

Trip & Fall cases focus around tripping accidents rather than slipping. Generally, this means falling forward rather than falling on your back.  Tripping accidents can often lead to severe facial damage, hand or wrist injury, and even knee damage. Overall, these cases can be just as dangerous. Injuries to your face as a result of a trip, you might suffer from breathing issues, emotional distress, trouble eating, and more. Depending on the fall, you might even require dental work. If you suffered from a Trip & Fall case, we can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

The most common Trip & Fall Conditions are:

  • Broken sidewalk or walkway
  • Tripping hazards
  • Raised sidewalks
  • Loose or torn carpeting
  • Exposed cords or wiring
  • Potholes
  • Sudden floor elevation changes
  • Merchandise on the floor

Slip and Fall Cases

Slip and Falls are one of the most common ways a person could suffer an injury. As winter hits NYC, the number of slip and fall cases increases. Business owners, landlords, and homeowners have a duty to keep walkways shoveled, salted, and ice free after a snow storm. If you’re hurt after falling from icy conditions, you could be entitled to compensation due to negligence of this duty. D’Agostino & Associates can help you determine if you have a case.

The most common Slip & Fall Conditions are:

  • Icy or snowy areas
  • Spills
  • Slippery substances
  • High shine surfaces
  • Waxed surfaces
  • Loose or missing handrails
  • Leaves or debris on walkways

Investigating the Injury Scene
