Bronx County, NY: Bronx | Riverdale | Co-op City | Highbridge | Belmont
Among the first challenges that we will have to figure out is who is at fault for the injury you suffered in your slip and fall or trip and fall accident. Even for an experienced Bronx personal injury law firm like Feiner & Lavy, this can require some serious investigating.
The truth about this is that it could be fully the fault of the property owner or a store operator or it could be a third party. You could even be partly responsible for your injuries. This is why it requires Feiner & Lavy to do careful work to determine exactly how we can pursue your personal injury case.
So, what if you suffer your fall in a convenience store or bodega. Who is could be responsible? There are many possibilities, but it could be the bodega owner or manager if there is a hazard in the store that wasn’t well marked, or nobody thought to put out slip-resistant mats during a downpour or snowstorm. It could be the building owner if the problem involved the sidewalk or maintenance of the property that isn’t the responsibility of the store operator. It could be a third party, like a soda delivery person who was carelessly spilling soda on the floor and never told the store operator that something happened that needed to be cleaned up.
There are some rules, like the times when a sidewalk must be cleared of snow after a storm, that a property owner must obey. If you fell because a snowy or icy condition continued for longer than the law required, that property owner is responsible, even though the rules in New York City can be pretty confusing.
