Stopping slip and falls must be a primary concern

Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents can lead to serious injuries for the victims. It is imperative that all property owners, including government entities and commercial property owners, take steps to ensure that anyone who is on the property is safe from hazards that can lead to these mishaps.

Not all shopping trips are safe for customers, but they should be

Many outdoor hazards can lead to serious injuries

Just because there isn't snow on the ground doesn't mean that you aren't at risk of being injured in an outdoor premises liability incident. These can occur in a variety of circumstances. Learning about some of these might help you to avoid them, but remember that it is ultimately up to the property owner to ensure that the premises is safe.

Slip-and-fall accidents happen because of negligence

You had a busy morning and it was your goal to get back to your hotel as fast as possible. You're in town for a short time, so you want to make sure you get to see as much of New York as you can.

Take action if you are injured on another person's property

Being injured on another person's property doesn't necessarily mean that you have to cover all of the expenses of the accident.
