Property Owners Are Responsible for Maintaining Safe Properties
Property owners, managers and those that maintain properties must take reasonable care to keep all areas of their properties safe. When a hazard is, or should have been, found by one of these entities, they must:
- Post caution signs or otherwise notify others of the hazard
- Fix the problem within a reasonable period of time
Failure to take the above steps positions one or more of these parties to be liable for any damages resulting from a slip or trip and fall injury on the property.
Our attorneys have worked since 1991 to assist in the recovery of damages for accident victims. We will help you do the same for your slip or trip and fall accident. Call today to get help from a Hempstead slip and fall accident and injury lawyer: 516-932-0400.

There is a Time Limit Associated with Pursuing Compensation
With all of life’s distractions and commitments, especially when made more demanding by dealing with the aftermath of a slip or trip and fall accident, it is unfortunately too easy to let time pass without taking action on a claim for compensation.
However, it is critically important to keep in mind that New York’s statute of limitations requires that you file legal action for your case within a certain time frame following the date of your accident. Additionally, the prosecution of injury claims has other various applicable time-deadlines.
