Slip and Fall

Personal Injury Attorney Serving The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan & New York City Areas


Simply walking down the street can become hazardous in New York City in the winter due to snow, ice, and rain causing slippery conditions. If you are injured after a slip and fall accident on a sidewalk, street, parking lot, stairwell, or other surface, you may be entitled to compensation. It is the property owner's responsibility to ensure that the sidewalks and parking lots adjacent to their building are well maintained and safe, so if you are injured, you may be able to sue. 

New York personal injury attorney Reid B. Wissner explains what constitutes a slip, trip, and fall injury in this video. If you've slipped and fallen on someone else's property, you may not think that there's anyone to blame but yourself, but this is often not true. Tripping and falling due to negligence by a property owner may entitle you to compensation. Call the Reid B. Wissner Law Offices at 212-903-4LAW (4529) today for a free legal consultation. 

If you slip and fall due to poorly maintained conditions on someone else's property, it can result in severe injury such as bone fractures, sprains, brain injury, or spinal cord injury. These injuries can result in hospital stays, medical bills, and lost wages due to inability to work.
