Slip And Fall In Dirty Places In New York By Michael Joseph on December 07, 2012

New York slip and fall cases can cause serious personal injuries that last a life time. Unfortunately, the New York Courts require a high burden of proof to receive compensation for an injury.

An injured person in a slip and fall case often must prove that whatever caused the slip and fall, be it water, debris, snow, ice or some other substance was either put there by the owner or it was there for long enough for the owner to discover it and remove it. This is often an impossible task since people don’t know how long the substance was there.

Another theory is available to hold defendants liable, is that the location is always dirty. Plaintiff may establish constructive notice through evidence that an ongoing and recurring dangerous condition existed in the area of the accident which was routinely left unaddressed by the landlord. When a landowner has actual knowledge of the tendency of a particular dangerous condition to reoccur, he is charged with constructive notice of each specific recurrence of that condition.
