The term “slip and fall” is commonly used to refer to any type of accident where you fall and suffer an injury on someone else’s property due to a dangerous or hazardous condition on that property, like a patch of snow or ice, a puddle of liquid or mud on the floor, a pothole, or a broken stair. When that dangerous or hazardous condition exists because of the negligence of the owner or occupier of the property, someone who injures themselves in a slip and fall accident may be entitled to compensation by the owner or occupier of the property for the injured victim’s damages.

Brooklyn is a borough of New York City, coterminous with Kings County, New York. Brooklyn/Kings County is the most populous county in New York State and the second-most densely populated county in the entire United States; if it were an independent municipality, Brooklyn would be the third-most populous city in the U.S. behind Los Angeles and Chicago. Located on the western end of Long Island with the borough of Queens, Brooklyn was founded in 1646 as Breuckelen in the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam, named for the village Breukelen in the Netherlands. Brooklyn was consolidated with the boroughs of Queens, the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island to form New York City in 1898. Historically consisting of a collection of ethnic enclave neighborhoods, in recent years Brooklyn has experienced a revival as an avant-garde community and a hub for entrepreneurship, technology, and art and design.
We understand why someone might not want to jeopardize their relationship with a family member or a friend by bringing a lawsuit against them for injuries and damages you suffered in a slip and fall accident on their property. However, you deserve to be compensated for your losses when a hazardous condition on someone else’s property injures you. If your family member or friend has homeowner’s insurance or renter’s insurance, remember that it is the insurance company, not your family member or friend, who will be paying your slip and fall claim. Your family member or friend has insurance to protect themselves and their assets in the event someone suffers an injury on their property.
When a slip and fall accident occurs on a rental property, it can be difficult to know whether the landlord or tenant is responsible for compensating the injured accident victim. Typically, a landlord is responsible for remedying dangerous or hazardous conditions in common areas of a rental property, like hallways or elevators, while tenants are responsible for conditions within their rented units. However, landlord and tenants can also assign responsibility for maintenance of certain portions of a rental property via lease, so in slip and fall cases involving accidents on a rental property, it may be necessary to review the lease to determine who may be liable for the accident.
