Slip and fall cases can be devastating. An unexpected fall can result in serious injuries that require years of rehabilitation. Hundreds of thousands of people are hospitalized every year because of unintentional slip and falls. When an injury is caused by someone else’s negligence or an unsafe condition on someone’s property, you might be entitled to compensation.

Slip and fall cases may seem straightforward, but they can quickly become complicated. It is always in your best interest to have your case reviewed by an attorney before making any statements or accepting a settlement.

We are your advocate in and out of the courtroom and will always fight to get you the maximum compensation allowed under New York law.

What to do First

If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, the first thing you need to do is seek medical treatment. Immediately after an unexpected accident, you may be in shock and unable to determine the full extent of your injuries. It is vital to your health and your recovery to be seen by a medical professional and continue treatment until being medically released.

When you are able, contact our office. We can provide free legal advice 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It can be hard to know if you have a legitimate claim for damages without the help of an experienced attorney. When you call, you will speak directly with an attorney to discuss your legal options.

Document any information related to the incident including pictures of the hazard, statements from witnesses, and your observations before, during, and after the fall. As your legal representative, we will subpoena any additional evidence, such as security videos and safety records, if applicable to your case.

Common Slip and Fall Injuries

A slip and fall injury can make it difficult to resume your normal daily activities and, in some cases, may make it impossible for you to return to work. Debilitating injuries that make a person unable to perform gainful employment are considered catastrophic. Depending on the nature of the fall, your injuries could be so severe that they are deemed catastrophic, entitling you to additional damages.
Pursuant to New York law, a person may recover damages for pain and suffering (non-economic losses) if they suffer a serious injury. Slip and falls that result in fractures, permanent loss or limitation of a body function or an injury that prevents a person from performing their "customary daily activities" for at least ninety of one hundred eighty days following the incident are considered serious under Section 5102 of the Insurance Code.

Common slip, trip, and fall injuries include:

-Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
-Broken bones

Determining Liability in a Slip, Trip, and Fall Case

Proving liability in a slip and fall case can be challenging. In some cases, it can become your word against the property owner's word. Regardless of the circumstances of your accident, you should always have it reviewed by an attorney. At Ajlouny Injury Law, we will complete a thorough investigation of your case, interviewing witnesses, subpoenaing evidence, and reconstructing the incident to determine fault.

Slip and fall cases can happen nearly anywhere. Your recovery is dependent on your relationship with the property owner (whether you were on the land legally) and showing that there was an unsafe condition which they failed to repair or warn you against. Slip, trips, and falls can be caused by a number of hazards. Common causes of slip and fall cases include:

- Spilled liquids at supermarkets
- Pallets or other obstacles obstructing aisles
- Uneven flooring
- Exposed cords
- Unsecured ladders
- Lack of safety railings
