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.

The 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
