It Wasn’t Just A Little Trip
When you slip and fall in public, for most, it can be a little embarrassing. However, most people don’t realize how hurt they are until time has passed. There’s often a chance that an “embarrassing slip” caused a long-lasting, expensive injury. That’s when you need the help of a skilled lawyer.
Trip-and-falls and slip-and-falls have a reputation as being “minor,” but at Toresco & Simonelli Attorneys At Law, our attorneys understand that they are anything but. We have pursued personal injury claims in West Islip and all over Long Island. We speak directly with you, explain the law and help you pursue the compensation you need for your injuries.
Common Causes Of Slip-And-Falls
Slip-and-falls and trip-and-falls are caused by unsafe conditions on a piece of property. This is the responsibility of the owners of the property, but often can be caused explicitly by:
- Loose flooring
- Wet floors
- Tripping hazards left out
- Improper signage around possible hazards
- Inattentive measures during routine maintenance
Essentially, property owners have several ways to keep you and others away from potentially dangerous hazards. They can block wet grocery aisles. They can display warnings in hazardous areas. They can have staff aggressively remove potential risks.
That a property owner does not, or refuses to take, such actions mean that they are negligent. These cases can be challenging to pursue, but you have many options with our team on your side.
