Falling due to the conditions on someone else’s property can have serious effects on a person. In many cases, falls can result in an individual suffering severe injuries that considerably impact his or her abilities and life. When such injuries occur, it is not unlikely for premises liability claims to be made in hopes of working toward compensation.
New York residents may be interested in such a situation that recently took place in another state. Reports indicated that a woman was at a shopping mall when she slipped and fell due to a foreign substance on the walkway. She believes that the company which owns the mall is liable for the incident and her resulting injuries due to failing to keep the area clean, allowing the substance to stay on the floor and failing to inspect the premises.
The fall reportedly caused her to suffer undisclosed injuries that were considered serious. The incident also caused aggravation to pre-existing conditions, mental distress, impairment, medical expenses and other damages. She hopes that by filing a legal claim she can work toward compensation over $15,000 for damages.
This type of incident is not uncommon, and many people suffer injuries due to such circumstances. If New York residents have found themselves in similar predicaments and have to deal with physical and financial damages as a result of hazardous premises conditions, they may wish to consider their options for filing premises liability claims. Discussing their particular details with experienced attorneys could help interested individuals determine whether taking such steps could be right for their situations.
