How to Prove a Trip and Fall Case in NYC
Essentially, a Plaintiff must establish that there is an unsafe or dangerous condition. The law requires that the condition must have existed for a period of time sufficient to give the owner notice that it was unsafe. Our law firm understands the concept of notice and what the law requires in a New York City trip and fall case. Many public sidewalks require a Notice of Claim to be properly filed within ninety days of an accident. If you fail to file the Notice of Claim with the proper Municipal Department or agency, your claim will be denied forever.
In New York City, laws regarding sidewalks, roadways, tree wells or curbs, are confusing. One section of a sidewalk may be the responsibility of two different parties. It is extremely important to select an experienced attorney that understands who the proper parties are, and how to timely and properly file your claim.
LAWS AFFECTING TRIPPING HAZARDS IN BUILDING
If there is an unsafe condition causing a trip and fall accident in an apartment building it would be governed by Article 78 of the New York State Multiple Dwelling Law. Additionally there are building codes and regulations which set forth requirements regarding handrails, stair and tread riser heights and widths. Lighting codes are also relevant, as many stairwell accidents are caused by poor lighting.
