Obtaining compensation for a winter slip-and-fall

In the winter, it is not uncommon for individuals to slip on a patch of ice and go down hard. Many will get up, slightly embarrassed at their fall or frustrated at the ice patch, and go about their day. However, some individuals suffer injuries that require medical attention after slipping on ice.

How can New Yorkers prevent winter slip and fall injuries?

Winter weather is upon us - that can cause some hazardous situations for pedestrians on the streets of New York City. Even though snow and ice can cause an injury, it does not need to keep you from shopping, going out to eat or attending your favorite venues.

Slip-and-fall accidents can cause serious issues

A trip to the grocery store shouldn't end with you having to take a trip to the emergency room. Unfortunately, some trips do end just like that. When you are injured at a business, you need to make sure that you get the medical care you need right away. Once you have done that, you can take legal action to recover your losses.

Conditions that can lead to stairway falls

Among the most dangerous slip and fall accidents are those that take place on the stairs. You may have heard that a stair that's just a millimeter higher than the others can make you trip due to muscle memory, and that's true, but it's not the only risk you face. A fall could lead to serious injuries or even death, so it's important to know of which risk factors to be aware.

Slip and Fall Accidents in Nursing Homes

Why is the number of older adults who fall in nursing homes so high?

Slip and fall accidents are common among the elderly, but the rate of nursing home falls is much higher than the rate of falls among the general population. Studies undertaken by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) show that approximately 1800 nursing home residents die of fall-related injuries each year.  Even for those who survive, these falls are frequently life-altering because they result in serious or permanent disability.
