Failing to maintain safe conditions may cause New York injuries

Most individuals spend a good deal of their time on property owned by other people. Though most ventures out of one's own home take place without any unexpected occurrences, some visitors could face injuries if property conditions pose hazards. Failing to maintain safe conditions can often result in parties slipping, tripping or otherwise falling and suffering harm.

New York residents may be interested in such an incident that recently took place in another state. One woman claims that while visiting a facility where she undergoes kidney dialysis, she tripped near the building's exit. Apparently, the area posed a risk due to uneven carpeting, and the woman tripped over the carpet and fell to the ground. The incident apparently caused her to suffer injuries, but it was unclear what the extent of those injuries might have been.

Nonetheless, the woman has filed a legal claim against the facility. She claims that their negligence and failure to fix the hazard contributed to her accident and subsequent injuries. She is currently pursuing over $50,000 in damages, and additional information on this case may become available at a later time.

Suffering injuries in a sudden accident can cause many difficulties for the parties involved. As this case shows, serious injuries could result from falls, and lawsuits may be warranted if failing to maintain safe conditions played a role in the incident. New York residents who have been involved in similar incidents may wish to consult with experienced attorneys to determine whether they have cause to pursue premises liability claims of their own.
