Common Types Of Pedestrian/Slip-And-Fall Accidents
The underlying cause of all slip-and-fall/pedestrian accidents is unsafe conditions that are not clearly marked. This can be an accident resulting from conditions such as a slippery floor or sidewalk, uneven walking surfaces or poor lighting. Some of the more common conditions that result in accidents include:
- Broken stairways
- Icy sidewalks and paths
- Uneven pavement
- Slippery floors
- Parking ramp falls
If you suffered an injury due to unsafe conditions on public or private property, we can help you get the compensation you deserve. From medical bills and lost work, we hold the people responsible accountable.
Injuries Due To Snow And Ice
It’s no secret that many areas of New York state experience several feet of snowfall each year. Home and business owners have an obligation to make sure that walkways on their property are safe. However, many property owners do not live up to their responsibility to shovel and keep their sidewalks and pathways clear of snow and ice. This often results in slip-and-fall accidents on their property. If you fell or had an accident due to a slippery sidewalk or pathway, we can help you get compensation for your injury.
Businesses are responsible for keeping their property as safe as possible. Far too often, customers and employees get hurt on wet floors. If you were injured after slipping and falling on an unmarked wet floor, you deserve compensation for your injury. Attorney Haegele can fight for you and make sure this does not happen to anyone else.
