Slip-and-Fall Overview

Information About Our Slip-and-Fall Practice

At Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., we litigate serious cases involving slip and falls or trip and falls, which are governed by New York state and New York City premises liability law. If you were injured because of a property owner's negligence, it is important to consult a lawyer with knowledge and experience in this area of personal injury law.

Since our founding in 1970, our law firm has helped thousands of injured people obtain compensation for their pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and for out-of-pocket losses associated with medical bills and lost wages.

Injured By a Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall?

Our New York slip-and-fall injury lawyers have provided injured clients with exceptional representation and advocacy in slip-and-fall cases such as:

  • Slip-and-falls on city property: If you have been injured on city or state property, it is important to work with a lawyer who understands the special requirements of these cases.
  • Snow and ice slip-and-falls: Some people view ice and snow as one of the downsides of living in New York. Whether or not you share this view, if you fell on the ice or slipped on a sidewalk that was not shoveled after a snowstorm, you may be eligible for compensation.
  • Sidewalk falls: These cases can be complicated, depending on who owns the property that abuts the sidewalk and what exactly caused the fall.
  • Defective elevators and escalators: Often times people are injured when elevators mislevel, drop, or fail to properly open and close. If you were injured when an escalator suddenly stopped, jerked, or ran off-track, we can help.
  • Stairway falls: Stairs, railings and lights on stairs need to be maintained in a reasonably safe condition. If you fell on a stairway because of a broken railing, broken or rotten steps, or inadequate lighting, you have a right to seek compensation. Stairway falls can occur in commercial buildings, private homes and apartment houses.
  • Health club slip-and-falls: Health clubs can be dangerous places. The machines are often placed too closely together, and users and staff may not clean up water spills or other debris that cause slip hazards.
  • Store slip-and-falls: Stores that do not properly clean spills, that improperly stack merchandise, or fail to warn of hazardous conditions may be liable if someone slips and falls.
  • Apartment building slip-and-falls: Owners of New York City apartment buildings are responsible for keeping their property in a reasonably safe condition for all those on the premises.

Our premises liability attorneys have represented clients who suffered a wide range of injuries in slip-and-fall accidents. For more information, check out what to do after a slip-and-fall accident and review the answers to frequently asked questions on our slip-and-fall FAQ page.
