Premises Liability Lawyer in Greenwich
Injured on Someone Else's Property? Our Greenwich Lawyers Can Help.
New York premises liability laws state that property owners and managers
are legally obligated to uphold a reasonable duty of care to keep their
property safe by reducing the risk of slip and fall accidents on their
property. If a person suffers an injury on the property due to a preventable
hazardous condition, such as failure to remove water, snow or ice from
walkways, the property owner can be deemed negligent and be held liable
for damages. Dangers and a lack of waring of unsafe conditions may result
in serious or catastrophic injury, including broken limbs, traumatic brain
injury (TBI), spinal cord injuries or burns.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that each year, over 800,000 patients are hospitalized
because of a fall injury. Additionally, between the years 2007- 2016,
fall death rates increased 30% in the U.S. With these kinds of statistics,
you need a legal team who can represent you with confidence in any type
of premises liability case.

How to Avoid Workplace Injuries
While the possibility of a serious, life-changing workplace injury may
be daunting, such accidents are entirely avoidable. Workers in any industry
can participate in keeping their environment safe by making an active
commitment to good housekeeping in the workplace. Establishing the importance
of deliberate maintenance often begins with those in leadership, but keeping
the workplace safe requires the participation of employees at every level
and can virtually eliminate the possibility of serious injury.
In order to prevent slips, trips, and falls in the workplace, the first
step is to ensure that walkways are clear of clutter. This can be done
through simple attention and initiative to do things like:
- Pick up discarded wrappers
- Wipe up unattended spills
- Keep doorways free of obstacles
- Report slippery, damaged, or inadequately maintained flooring
- Eliminate clutter and unnecessary crowding in the workplace
