Long Island City Slip and Fall Lawyers
A slip, trip, and fall accident can happen just about anywhere – a restaurant, a supermarket, an office building, a sidewalk, or a private residence. Wet or icy floors, broken stairs, fallen debris, poor lighting, or shoddy maintenance can all contribute to an accident.
If a property owner or landlord was aware of a possible danger before your injury happened and did nothing to fix it or even post a warning– you might have grounds to pursue legal compensation. At Douglas & London, our Long Island City slip and fall lawyers have helped clients obtain fair money damages for serious injuries caused by negligence.
If this has happened to you, go straight to your nearest urgent care center. Even if your fall doesn’t produce obvious injuries, it’s better to be safe than sorry and have a doctor check you over. Concussions and soft tissue injuries may have mild symptoms at first but can have serious long-term consequences without prompt diagnosis and treatment.

Common slip and fall accident injuries
According to the National Floor Safety Institute, falls account for almost 90 percent of all fractures among people aged 65 and older. In the U.S., slip and fall accidents are the second-leading cause of brain trauma and spinal cord injury. Some 5 percent of people who fall will suffer a broken bone. Others may be prone to injury, such as:
- Neck and shoulder injuries to the joints, muscles, and ligaments
- Back injuries – slipped or herniated discs
- Knee injuries to the cruciate ligament requiring surgery
- Spinal cord injury – possibly resulting in paralysis
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI) – such as a concussion
Medical treatment for slip and fall injuries can run into hundreds of thousands of dollars. The median hospital cost, according to the CDC, can range from $30,000 to more than $45,000. With Long Island City slip and fall lawyers handling your case, you stand a much higher chance of recovering maximum damages for your hospital bills, lost income, rehabilitation, and pain and suffering.
