Don’t Let a Fall Silence You: Understanding Slip and Fall Accidents on Long Island

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere, anytime. But when they occur on someone else’s property, and you’re left injured, the situation becomes much more complex. Here on Long Island, Gruenberg Kelly Della is dedicated to helping individuals like you navigate the legal landscape after a slip and fall accident.

While these accidents might seem like minor mishaps, they can result in serious injuries, causing significant medical bills and lost wages. If you’ve been hurt in a slip and fall on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages.

The Burden of Proof in Slip and Fall Cases

In a slip and fall case, the burden of proof lies with you, the injured party. To win your case, you need to demonstrate that the property owner was negligent in maintaining their premises. This means proving that the owner:

  • Knew or should have known about the dangerous condition: The property owner must have been aware of the hazard, or it must have been present for a long enough time that a reasonable owner would have discovered it.
  • Failed to take reasonable steps to rectify the situation: Once aware of the hazard, the owner should have taken action to fix it, warn visitors, or otherwise prevent accidents.

What Doesn’t Constitute Negligence

It’s important to understand that slip and falls don’t automatically translate to negligence. There are situations where accidents can occur even if the property owner acted reasonably. For instance, if you trip over a clearly visible object or spill your own drink and fall, the owner likely wouldn’t be held responsible.
