Howard Beach Slip and Fall Lawyers
A slip and fall accident happens in the blink of an eye. One moment, you are browsing the aisles of a store or walking on a public sidewalk. The next moment, you are flat on your back in severe pain.
When these injuries occur due to your own carelessness, you are likely without options in pursuing a legal claim. But if your fall occurred due to a hazard, the property owner failed to address; you could be entitled to financial compensation.
You do not have to guess if your claim is viable or not. When you meet with us, we can review it and advise you if you have a path to monetary recovery. Speak with a slip and fall lawyer from our firm to get started today.
How slip and fall accidents happen
For a successful injury claim, the accident must result from some form of hazard that the property owner failed to address. This could involve items left out by them, or a naturally occurring hazard, such as ice and snow. What ties these claims together is that these things are dangerous, and the property owner failed to take reasonable steps to address it.
Common elements in a slip and fall could include:
- Wet floors
- Accumulated ice or snow
- Damaged concrete
- Spilled cleaning supplies
- Dim lighting
- Loose steps
- Bunched carpet
- Spilled drinks
If you have suffered an injury due to any of these facts, it is vital that you speak with an attorney right away.

- Broken bones
