slip & fall accidents Archives

Research finds stairs present danger of slip-and-fall accidents

Researchers recently discovered that an estimated 3,000 people suffer injuries from falling down stairs every day. While many of these slip-and-fall accidents do not result in serious injuries, there are also many who suffer significant fractures or other serious injuries. When these accidents occur due to the apparent negligence of another party, then New York victims may have cause to pursue a civil claim.

Many slip-and-fall accidents lead to civil law suits

Property owners, managers and tenants must ensure their premises are free of hazards that could injure visitors. Many slip-and-fall accidents occur in stores in New York every year. Victims are not always sure whether they have grounds to sue because so many myths exist about premises liability lawsuits.

Woman sues city after sidewalk slip and fall accident

One woman is suing a city after suffering injuries from a fall on city property. The woman was injured in 2015 when she suffered a slip and fall accident while crossing a sidewalk. While this accident did not take place in New York, similar premises liability cases are won in the state each year.

Woman injured in 7-Eleven slip and fall accident

A woman alleges that she suffered injuries in a 7-Eleven store in another state. She filed a complaint against the retail chain after suffering the slip-and-fall accident. The woman's claim is that the retail store failed to provide her with a safe environment in which to shop. In New York, as in other states, a retail store is responsible for making sure that its location is safe for consumers and other business invitees.

OSHA makes new rules to prevent slip-and-fall accidents

According to some reports, many employers may have missed the new slip-and-fall rules that were recently put in place by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA. The Walking-Working Surfaces safety standards were updated in order to help prevent the hundreds of deaths and over 5,000 injuries that happen each year. Many of these incidents take place in New York.
