Slip And Fall Accidents On Wet Stairs In New York City By Michael Joseph on July 17, 2011

As a New York City personal injury attorney that handles a lot of slip and fall accidents on the stairs, we have become familiar with the New York City Building Code and the New York City Maintenance and Sanitation Codes.

In most wet stair cases, you need to show that the owner either created the wet and slippery condition or that they knew or should have known about the water and failed to remedy the condition. This can often be difficult to do and our New York personal injury lawyers have been innovative in closely analyzing the stairway condition as a contributing factor.

Our New York personal injury lawyers have successfully prosecuted personal injury cases in New York City by establishing that the stair treads did not have skid resistant material, which is a violation of the New York City Building and Maintenance Codes. Even if the cause of the water cannot be proven, the lack of skid resistant material can always be proven at a defendants’ deposition, which is sufficient to establish improper and negligent maintenance.

Our New York personal injury lawyers regularly handle slip and fall cases in the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.
