Empire State Building Fall Accidents: Causes and Liability
Under New York law, property owners or occupiers have a duty to eliminate unsafe property conditions and prevent injuries to visitors. This includes marking unavoidable trip hazards such as step-ups and step-downs, keeping walkways clear, taking care of ice and snow accumulation, cleaning spills, and properly maintaining railings and banisters.
If they fail to do so and one of these hazards causes a person to trip and fall, the victim has a legal right to file an insurance claim or civil lawsuit and try to hold the property owner or occupier accountable.
If you sustained injuries in a slip and fall at the Empire State Building, our team can evaluate your case and pursue legal action on your behalf. The liable party may include:
- Empire State Realty Trust, the publicly traded Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) that owns the building.
- One of several corporations that occupy the offices in the building.
- One of the occupiers of the restaurant or retail spaces in the building.
- An outside party that may have improperly performed work on the premises and created the dangerous condition.
We also take on similar premises liability cases for slip and fall or trip and fall accidents that occur at museums, sports venues, Rockefeller Center & Top of the Rock Observation Deck, in Broadway theaters and elsewhere in the Theater District, and other popular destinations for New York City locals and tourists alike.
