Injuries from a New York slip and fall could warrant legal action

It is easy to suddenly become involved in an injury-causing accident. Unexpected conditions on someone's property may arise that present a risk that was not obviously noticeable, and as a result, a person could slip and fall. This type of accident is known for causing injuries that can seriously impact an individual's life.

New York residents may be interested in one woman who suffered such injuries after an incident in another state. Reports indicated that the woman was at an electronics store when the incident occurred. Apparently, she was walking toward the register area of the establishment when she slipped in a wet substance on the floor. As a result, she fell and suffered undisclosed injuries. It was noted that those injuries were serious and permanent. 

The woman believes that the owners and operators of the store are liable for her injuries due to their failure to inspect and remedy a hazardous condition. She has filed a legal claim against the store in hopes of seeking compensation for physical pain, mental turmoil, medical costs and other damages. She apparently hopes to gain monetary restitution in an amount between $200,000 and $1 million.

When a person is injured due to a slip and fall, the types of outcomes could vary. If the injuries that result prove severe, it may be warranted for the affected party to take legal action, as this case shows. New York residents who have suffered in similar events may want to gain more information on premises liability claims and whether such action could suit their circumstances.
