Establishing Fault in a Slip & Fall Accident Case

In New York, property owners have a legal duty to provide a reasonably safe environment for their visitors. This means that they must take steps to remedy potentially hazardous conditions as soon as they arise. If they fail to do so, and a visitor is subsequently injured on their property, they can be held liable for damages. However, since not all accidents can be avoided, property owners can only be held accountable for a slip and fall if one of the following is true:

  • The property owner or an employee caused the dangerous condition
  • The property owner or an employee knew about the dangerous condition
  • The property owner or an employee should have known about the danger
