Yonkers Premises Liability Attorney
Accidents Occurring on Premises
You don’t anticipate falling and getting injured when you step onto someone else’s property, whether it’s a friend’s house for dinner, the mall for shopping, or the supermarket for groceries. Although you should be aware of your surroundings and any potentially hazardous conditions, you cannot prevent all mishaps.
If you are injured as a result of a dangerous situation on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to financial compensation from the property owner. It might be difficult to establish liability in these types of circumstances. As a result, it is vital to learn as much as possible about these types of situations and retain an accident lawyer that specializes in premises liability incidents to ensure that you receive the full compensation that you deserve. The legal team at Cesar Zuniga, Esq. is committed to assisting and guiding injured slip and fall victims in holding the correct parties accountable and obtaining the compensation they deserve.
Each year, almost 8 million people visit the emergency room due to falls. This indicates that falls are the most common reason for visits (21.3 percent ). Slips and falls, in particular, account for more than 1 million visits, or 12% of all falls.
Accidents involving slips and falls are classified according to how they occur. The following are some of the most typical causes of premises liability accidents:
- Wet and slick flooring – any spills should be cleaned right away, and signs should be posted to alert visitors to the presence of wet floors.
- Tripping hazards are created by cluttered floors, which include merchandise or things in aisles, as well as other items that have been left out.
- Damaged floors and stairways – floors or staircases that are not up to code or defective can be a cause of accidents.
- Broken or sagging staircases, shredded carpeting, and sagging floors should not be overlooked. These can be a breeding ground for slip-and-fall accidents.
The above-mentioned dangerous situations can occur in a variety of sites that most of us frequent on a regular basis, including:
- Shopping malls
- Parking lots
- Visiting a House
- Visiting an Apartment
- Theaters, arenas, and stadiums
- Parks and playgrounds
- Retirement residences
