Lawyers For Lost Footing
Slipping on a banana peel is standard fodder for comedy. But when you slip, trip or fall in real life, it’s not so funny. For an older person in particular, a fall can be a serious, life-changing event, and even lead to death. At The Law Firm of Davidoff & Associates in Forest Hills, Queens, our slip-, trip-and-fall attorneys represent clients who have been injured when the negligent acts of others led to an accident. We are happy to discuss what happened in your situation to determine how we might help.
An Expectation Of Safety, Violated
When you go about your day, you reasonably expect that the places you go will be safe for walking, but this is not always the case. When a person responsible for a property fails to take appropriate measures to ensure safety of a place where people will be walking, accidents happen. Slip-, trip-and-fall hazards can come in many forms, including:
- Slippery floors
- Loose rugs
- Damaged or irregular steps
- Exposed cords
- Obstacles in a walkway
- Drops in sidewalk height
- Irregular curb cuts
Slip-and-fall injuries can include strains, sprains, fractures, bruising and other insults to the part of the body that absorbed the fall.
It’s easy to fall victim to slip-, trip-and-fall hazards if you’re not paying attention 100 percent of the time, which hardly anybody does. But when you do find yourself injured in this kind of accident, our lawyers will stand behind you 100 percent of the way.
