Slip & Fall Accidents

A Bridge to Recovery From a Slip and Fall Accident

Injuries caused by a slip and fall accident may not appear to be serious at first. In some cases, in fact, the full extent of the injuries may not be known for weeks or months after the accident. Because of that, or because they mistakenly assume an accident was their own clumsy fault — many people do not take the actions necessary to protect their own rights.

My name is John Kingsley, and as an attorney, I have helped many people recover fair compensation for injuries and other losses resulting from these kinds of accidents in Greene, Columbia and Ulster counties. However, because the kinds of conditions that cause these accidents are often temporary and easily fixable — it is very important to give notice to the property owner or business where you were hurt and to document the evidence needed to prove your claim. If you are unsure of how to do that or can't, do not hesitate to call on me.

Establishing Negligence and Liability in Slip and Fall Cases

As simple as a slip or trip and fall accident may seem, the laws and local ordinances that apply to these types of cases can be very complicated. Having practiced in this area for many years, my knowledge of the safety requirements imposed on local property owners and of the laws governing all New York property owners helps me help my clients obtain the compensation they deserve.

Key issues in a slip and fall premises liability case include:

  • Was the defect or condition open and obvious?
  • How long had the defect or condition been present?
  • Did the property owner know about the defect or condition?
  • Had the defect or condition existed long enough that the property owner should have been aware of it?
  • Were any steps taken to warn people of the existence of the dangerous defect or condition?
