Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers in Rochester, NY
We all have a duty to “look where we are going or stepping,” especially with the slippery and icy winters in the Rochester area. But premises owners also have a legal responsibility to create a reasonably safe environment for their visitors, who may not be as familiar with the stairs, aisles, or tripping hazards. This is particularly true in retail establishments and commercial parking lots, where the invited consumer is encouraged to be more attentive to the displays of merchandise for sale than what is on the floor or ground, or hung in the air. The injuries that occur in these situations – from fractured hips to broken wrists to eye injuries – can have personal consequences for which the land or store owner must bear responsibility for their negligent maintenance.
A fall can be painful – and devastating. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a fall on property belonging to someone else, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain, rehabilitation, lost wages and/or career earnings.
A significant investment of time, energy, legal resources and legal maneuvering is required to win a lawsuit for a slip and fall accident in New York State.
