Slip-and-fall accidents: Fall in store results in injuries

In New York, business and property owners are required to keep their property and businesses safe for all those who legally visit. Many financial challenges are present for store and business owners today, so repairs or maintenance may sometimes be delayed in an attempt to save money. Unfortunately, this may result in hazardous conditions that could potentially cause injuries to patrons. Slip-and-fall accidents are not only increasing in New York but also across the country.

A woman in another state recently filed a lawsuit after she allegedly fell due to dangerous conditions in a grocery store. The woman claims she was shopping in the canned foods aisle and encountered a reddish-brown substance on the floor. Allegedly, this caused the woman to slip and fall.

Due to the alleged fall, the woman says she suffered disfigurement and mental anguish, as well as physical pain and loss of enjoyment of life. The woman holds the defendant responsible and claims the defendant failed to alleviate the dangerous condition and failed to provide warning of the hazard. The woman seeks damages between $200,000 and $1 million plus all other just relief.

The only sure thing about life is that accidents are going to happen. Although some accidents are totally unavoidable, many accidents can be prevented by taking a few basic precautions such as eliminating hazards. Those in New York who have been injured in slip-and-fall accidents could benefit by seeking the services of an experienced attorney. A successful lawsuit could result in much-needed compensation to help with medical expenses and other financial losses.
