Slip-and-fall accidents occur because of dangerous or defective conditions on the premises. Property owners are responsible for keeping their properties in reasonable repair and for warning visitors and occupants of dangerous property conditions. Peter J. Schaffer and lawyers working with him handle premises liability claims arising from dangerous property conditions such as:
Unnatural accumulation of snow and ice Defectively designed parking lots Holes Uneven walking surfaces Loose steps Loose handrails and dangerous stairs Loose carpeting Loose or slippery flooring
Slip and fall and premises liability cases commonly occur in public locations such as grocery stores or parking lots, but they may occur in the common areas of apartment complexes or on sidewalks. Our attorneys have also successfully represented New York residents and visitors to the City who were injured due to negligently maintained sidewalks or a property owners failure to clear ice and snow.
