Slipping on an icy sidewalk or falling due to tripping on an uneven floorboard can lead to a number of injuries. Business owners in New York have a legal responsibility to make sure their properties are free from hazards that can cause slips and falls, and there are different things they can do to prevent them.
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.
Winter weather in New York can bring with it a variety of hazards that can quickly become dangerous, especially if you are unprepared for the elements. Even though snow is beautiful, it can also create treacherous conditions that you must carefully navigate in order to stay safe and healthy. At Belovin Franzblau & Associates, P.C., we are committed to helping people deal with the aftermath of winter accidents.
