Question:

What is important to know about a slip and fall on ice or snow in New York?

Answer:

Slip and Fall on Ice or Snow A client called us the other day and said, “I slipped and fell on some ice in front of a grocery store. Do I have a claim against the operator of the grocery store?” Our answer was, “Yes, you have a potential claim against the operator of the grocery store. You may also have a claim against the owner of the building where the grocery store resides, if the owner is different from the grocery store.” You would have two potential defendants, and sometimes you may even have more, depending on the situation, where you can prosecute a claim and get compensation for your pain and suffering and get those medical bills paid.

My suggestion is that, if you’re in that situation, you give us a call as soon as possible so we can pursue and prosecute a claim against the ones that may have caused your accident. I also want to point out, as long as we’re on the subject of slip and falls on ice, it would be a wise thing to do, if the accident just happened, to get some photographs of the location where you fell. A picture is worth a thousand words, and you’ll be able to see that later on it could be used as evidence of exactly what it was that you slipped and fell on.
