Bronx Slip And Fall Accident Claims We Handle
A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere. As long as you were legally entitled to be on the property, the property owner owes you a duty of care. To satisfy this duty, the property owner must maintain the property in reasonably safe condition—and must place adequate warnings when something dangerous exists on the property. Slip and fall accidents in the Bronx commonly happen because of:
- Cracked, crumbling or uneven pavement in the areas surrounding a business,
- Poor lighting in walkways, stairwells, parking lots and pathways,
- Poorly maintained staircases or elevators,
- Inadequate handrails on staircases,
- Slippery floors,
- Snow and ice that isn’t properly cleared.
Both business owners and private homeowners have a duty to repair dangerous conditions in a reasonable timeframe. They also have a duty to warn customers and invited guests about any hazards that have not been repaired. Our firm handles claims for compensation based on slip and fall accidents involving falls in or on:
- Grocery stores and supermarkets,
- Shopping malls,
- Restaurants and bars,
- Subway stations,
- Sidewalks outside a business,
- A friend’s home,
- Amusement parks,
- Stadiums and entertainment venues,
- The zoo,
- Inadequately maintained rental properties,
- Parking lots and parking garages.
Regardless of where you were injured, it is important to act quickly. New York law limits the amount of time you have to file a claim against a negligent property owner. Even more importantly, property owners usually act quickly to fix the hazard once they learn that someone has been hurt.
If you have been catastrophically injured because of a dangerous condition on someone else’s property in the Bronx, our lawyers will investigate while you recover. You can call us anytime to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss options in your case.

About The Bronx, NY
The Bronx is one of the five NYC boroughs, located to the northeast and east of Manhattan. The Bronx population is relatively dense and the area is also home to attractions like the Bronx Zoo and Yankee Stadium—and the restaurants, bars and shops that surround these types of attractions. The organizations that own these properties—and the landlords who rent to Bronx residents—have a duty to keep their property safe for visitors to prevent harm.
Frequently Asked Questions About Bronx, NY Slip And Fall Accident Claims
Yes. More accurately, their homeowner’s insurance company will be responsible for paying compensation. Homeowners have a duty to keep even their private property reasonably safe. The duty they owe is less strict than the one that applies to business owners. While they have a duty to warn you about any hazards, the homeowner does not have a responsibility to inspect the property to find hidden dangers (business owners do have a duty to conduct reasonable inspections).
Slip and fall accident cases are based on premises liability law. Generally, property owners are held to a reasonable person standard. That means that if we can show that a reasonable person would have known about the hazard, and repaired the condition or installed warnings, the owner can be held liable. Proving liability requires getting evidence about how long the danger existed, where the hazard was located, and whether the property owner knew about it or should have known about it.
