Slip-and-fall accidents are common in New York. From shiny marble floors in corporate buildings to icy walkways, there are many risks people need to look out for. Most Americans are especially concerned about elderly people falling, because the consequences for them are more serious. However, anyone can become injured or even die if they talk a bad fall.
The indignity of being put in handcuffs, taken to jail, and put through a court trial that ultimately reveals law enforcement had no viable evidence against you in the first place can be mentally and emotionally taxing. No New York resident should be humiliated by a prosecution made on false grounds, which can be considered a case of malicious prosecution.
