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.
