We Represent People Injured In Slip-And-Fall Accidents
What if you were in a New York grocery store and shopping, and you walk down the aisle and suddenly slip and fall, injuring your back and neck. When you finally get up, you see a broken bottle of pickles in the aisle. A pool of pickle juice was on the floor and that is what you slipped on. The store owner should have promptly cleaned up the spill. They could be held liable for not doing so and for your resulting injuries. This is just one scenario, which is under the category of slip, trip and fall.

What Is Negligence?
Negligence is when someone has acted carelessly and, as a result, this carelessness causes injury to someone else. In general, shopkeepers and store owners have a duty of care to provide a safe environment for their customers. When that safe environment is compromised and the store owner could have prevented it, they are said to be negligent. As a result, they could be held liable for your injuries.
