Determining Liability for Your Slip and Fall at Times Square Accident
When a trip and fall leads to a serious injury, the situation warrants a detailed investigation into what happened and who was liable. The person or entity that owns the premises where the fall occurred will likely argue that they were not at fault, perhaps citing the victim’s own carelessness as the result of the fall. But a fall caused by any kind of hazard that should have been addressed might be the fault of the property owner, property manager, or other party who was responsible for overseeing the specific grounds where the injury occurred.
If you slipped and fell at or near Times Square in New York City, the following parties might bear liability for your injury:
- The owner of the business where you slipped and fell
- The manager of the property where your injury occurred
- A property owner who had actual or constructive notice of the hazardous condition that led to your fall, but failed to act
- The maintenance technician or company that created the dangerous situation or failed to remedy it
The New York Times Square slip and fall accident lawyers at Friedman & Simon, L.L.P., will investigate and determine which of these parties—or others—is financially liable for your injury, and we will aggressively pursue them for the compensation you deserve.
