Injuries from slip and fall may warrant compensation in New York

During the winter months, snow and ice can cause considerable hazards to individuals everywhere. However, if property owners do not take the steps to clear walkways and other paths, there is a chance that parties could slip and fall and suffer serious injuries. In such cases, those who have been injured may have cause to file premises liability claims. 

New York residents may find one out-of-state man's case of interest. Reports stated that the man was at a cement company terminal when he fell due to icy conditions. The man stated that the companies connected with the terminal are liable for the incident because they did not take proper measures to clear snow and ice from the premises. They also apparently did not warn of slippery conditions. 

The man suffered injuries as a result of the fall, but it was not clear what those injuries were. In order to seek compensation for those damages, he has filed a lawsuit against three companies for negligence. The report stated that he is seeking recompense of approximately $150,000 in addition to legal expenses. 

Suffering injuries due to a slip and fall can cause considerable troubles for individuals involved in the incident. As this case shows, there may be cause to file a civil claim against liable parties due to unsafe conditions. If New York residents have been involved in similar events and suffered harm, they may wish to consult with experienced attorneys who could provide beneficial information on their legal options and possible courses of action.
