Accidents at the Guggenheim in New York City
If you were injured at the Guggenheim in New York City, at-fault parties might be liable for your injuries. A New York Guggenheim Museum trip and fall accident lawyer from Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. will investigate and find out who those parties are. Even trip and fall accidents that seem like flukes—or the result of carelessness on your own behalf—might have been caused by hidden dangers that someone else had the responsibility to address.
We will fight for your compensation if your Guggenheim Museum trip and fall accident occurred due to:
Slippery floors cause many slip and fall accidents across the country every year. When it comes to slippery floors in a business or nonprofit organization open to the public, the property owner, tenant, or company that maintains the premises may be responsible for failing to promptly clean up spills or failing to block off the area in question until it is safe and dry.
When you are in a crowd, it can be difficult to spot hazardous conditions on the floor, such as wires, objects that should not be there, or other items that can cause you to slip and fall. By way of example, the property manager or perhaps an outside company that came in to make a repair or perform an installation or renovation might be responsible for failing to keep the floors free from such hazards.
Loose or Missing Stairs
If you fell while making your way up and down a flight of stairs, we will investigate to determine if the stairwell was safe. A loose step or handrail is a dangerous condition, even if it is minor and not obviously broken. We will hold the parties liable who should have addressed the issue.
Unmarked Obstacles on Grounds
The property manager’s liability might not be limited to injuries that occur inside the facility. If you were injured on the grounds because of an unmarked obstacle, we will show how the responsible party should have addressed it and shielded you from it.
Trampled in Crowd
If you slipped and fell because you got trampled in a crowd of people, we will show that the facility lacked crowd control and that you were injured as a result.
Other Trip and Fall Injuries
We want to hear from you no matter how your trip and fall injury at the Guggenheim in New York City occurred—even if it does not fall into any of the categories listed above.
