How Much Time Do You Have to Sue After a Slip and Fall?

caution wet floor sign at a corridor

Falls are among the leading causes of injuries, and some of those injuries can be quite severe. From head trauma and internal damage to broken bones and sprains, falls can cause all sorts of problems that can land you in the hospital and keep you out of work. But you shouldn’t have to pay for an injury that was caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness. If you were injured on someone else’s property, or on public property, you may have the basis for a personal injury lawsuit. You should contact a slip and fall lawyer right away. The clock starts ticking right away after your accident, and if you wait too long, you might forfeit your right to file a legal claim for compensation.

Statute of limitations in New York

Each type of legal case is subject to a statute of limitations. This is the deadline to file a claim. In New York, the statute of limitations for slip and fall cases is three years from the date of the accident. Note that there is an exception to this. If you were injured on public property, keep reading to find out what the deadline is. But assuming that you were injured on private property that you don’t own, you’ll have no longer than three years to file a lawsuit.

Three years might sound like a long time, but bear in mind that a lawsuit isn’t something that can be quickly filed. It will take some time for the personal injury lawyer to investigate the accident, compile the necessary records, and draft the lawsuit.

Additionally, it’s customary to send a demand notice to the responsible party first. The demand notice requests compensation for your losses. You may be able to get the money you need without filing a lawsuit or going to court. However, it may take a while to get a response to the demand letter. And meanwhile, that clock keeps ticking. It’s always in your best interests to get the ball rolling quickly by consulting a lawyer as soon as possible after you’ve been injured.

Exceptions to the statute: Injuries occurring on public property

If you fell down on a public sidewalk, in a municipal building, or on any other type of public property, you have even less time to file a claim. You’ll need to see a slip and fall lawyer as quickly as you can. In New York, you only have 90 days to file a formal claim against a city or county, and just one year to file a lawsuit against either entity. Additionally, you only have 90 days to file a claim against the state. If your total losses cannot be calculated within that 90-day period, you must still file a notice of intent to file a claim within those 90 days.

Edelman, Krasin, & Jaye Wins Hard-Fought Battle To Prove Premises Liability

Statue of justiceAfter five years of denials and ongoing litigation, the Law Firm of Edelman, Krasin, & Jaye is pleased to announce a hard-fought victory in the premises liability case of Lyonnel Saintume vs. Elizabeth Lamattina. It took a Nassau County Supreme Court jury less than 30 minutes to find the defendant 100% liable for an August 2013 accident occurring in the attic of her Glen Head, NY home. The settlement amount is still under negotiation. The Plaintiff’s team was led by Trial Counsel Allen Rosner, an experienced litigator with Edelman, Krasin, & Jaye who has earned distinction among the top 2.5% of lawyers on the Super Lawyers’ “Rising Stars” list and an esteemed place on the Top 40 Under 40 for the state of New York.

The Facts of the Case

Our client was a Haitian-born 55-year-old exterminator with 20 years of experience in his field. He was called out to the property of a retired kindergarten teacher who lived alone in a two-story colonial home for over 30 years. Though she admits she had never actually gone up into the attic during the lengthy amount of time she owned the property, she was confident enough as to the safety of the room to send our client up to look for bees. There were only beams for the contractor to walk across in the unfinished attic. He suddenly stepped on a five-foot section of rotted wood and plunged partially through the ceiling.

Defense Case Weak on Evidence

The Defense argued fiercely that we had “no evidence” to prove our version of events. They claimed the plaintiff simply lost his footing and fell between the beams, arguing that his testimony was “incredulous” and “inconsistent.” Though we had photos, they claimed the pictures showed nothing. The defense even went so far as to bring in a non-party witness from a painting company who initially testified he did not see any broken beams when he came to repair and paint the ceiling, but later confessed under cross-examination that he did not know whether there was damage in the attic or not.

Our Law Firm’s Tenacity and Knowledge of the Law Prevails

Mr. Rosner argued that the jury should think of this attic the same way they would any other part of the home. Would you claim ignorance if the kitchen ceiling caved in or the front stairs collapsed? Is it not the duty of a reasonable homeowner to periodically view these areas to assess the condition of these parts of the home? Certainly, prior to allowing another individual access to any part of your home, you would exercise due diligence in making sure there were no safety hazards they should be aware of, would you not?

As it turns out, the defense produced inconclusive photo-documentation and witnesses who had not been in the attic before or after the accident. What began as certainty that there could not have been rotten wood beams in the attic was finally revealed as one big “I don’t know” because the area had not been in use and had not been inspected for over 35 years.

The fact that the jury found the homeowner 100% responsible for the accident is a best-case-scenario outcome. At trial, we so effectively established that the condition of the attic should have been obvious to any responsible homeowner that the jury found the defendant unreasonable in sending the contractor up to the dangerous attic to find bees, and found our client was simply performing his job to the best of his ability.

If you or a loved one sustained an injury on another person’s property, do not hesitate to call Edelman, Krasin & Jaye for a free consultation to see what we can do for you.

3 Ways You Can Get Injured by Fireworks

fireworksWhile the Fourth of July is usually a happy midsummer holiday, it — and the period surrounding it — can be dangerous. Why? Fireworks.

Last year, 8 people died as a result of fireworks. On average, in the month surrounding the Fourth of July, 280 people go to the hospital emergency room every day for firework-related injuries. The month is counted because people set off fireworks, play with fireworks, and use sparklers frequently during the month.

While people can be injured in many ways by fireworks (one of the recent deaths was from a house fire started by fireworks), here are the top 3.

Number 1: Burns

According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, 53% of firework-related injuries every year stem from burns. People suffer burns on their hands and fingers, heads, faces, and ears, and legs most frequently.

Remember, fireworks ignite. Anything that ignites has the potential of causing burns. Think sparklers are an innocent and harmless way of celebrating our nation’s birthday? Think again. Sparklers can reach 2,000° Farenheit. That’s as hot as a blowtorch.

It’s especially important to keep fireworks out of the hands of small children and to supervise everyone using them. Last year, the people who died from fireworks-related incidents were as young as 4 years old, and as old as 57.

Number 2: Injuries

Fireworks also explode. Remember when your parents would caution you that you could lose an eye from horsing around with dangerous material? Well…you can. Fourteen percent of firework-related injuries happen to the eye.

Firework explosions can blow off fingers and harm every other part of the body, with abrasions, bruises, and more.

People can also suffer injury if fireworks are thrown at them.

Number 3: Hearing Loss

Fireworks are loud. The booms and pops that seem so much a part of watching fireworks can be dangerous close at hand. Fireworks can be as loud as 150 decibels. That’s enough to cause hearing loss.

If you or a loved one feels that a fireworks explosion has caused hearing loss, visit a hearing specialist right away for care.

Elderly Deaths by Falls Rises Dramatically

elder in nursing homeRecent statistics indicate a dramatic rise in the number of deaths caused by falls in older adults. Between 2007 and 2016, deaths caused by falls climbed over 30% in people more than 65, according to a recent Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, a publication issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Overly 30,000 Elderly People Die Every Year from Fall-Related Injuries

The sharp increase is alarming, especially considering that falls have long been counted as a leading cause of injury and death among people over 65. The study shows that over 30,000 older citizens die as a result of falls every year.

In addition, 7 million people in this age category suffer injuries caused by falls every year. In fact, the seventh leading cause of death in senior citizens is termed “unintentional injuries.” Falls make up a large percentage of these types of injuries.

Fall-Related Deaths Expected to Double Over Next 12 Years

According to the study, death rates from falls grew an average of 3% every year for senior citizens over 65. Even more alarmingly, people over 85 years old had a higher rate of increase, at 4% every year.

Thirty states registered significant increases in fall-related deaths, while 11 registered either no rise or a drop. A few states registered mixed results year by year.

Researchers pointed out that, if these trends remain steady, the death rates from falls for elderly people could post steady increases. If the trends don’t change, more than 60,000 people over 65 could die by 2030.

The dramatic rise could be due to the longer life spans now common. Many people are living past 65 and 85. Chronic conditions common among older people, such as stroke, arthritis, and Parkinson’s disease, may make them more prone to fall. Many older people take medications whose side effects cause dizziness or sleepiness, which can also increase the risk of falling.

Bringing a Claim for Damages After a Fall

Older people must have a safe environment that ensures mobility without risk of falling. If you or a loved one has fallen due to the negligence of another party, it may be possible to bring a claim for personal injury (of which slip and fall accidents are a subcategory) or, in the worst instance, wrongful death.

If you need an attorney, Edelman, Krasin & Jaye are experienced personal injury/wrongful death attorneys who will fight tenaciously to see that justice is done.

How to Prove Liability in a Slip and Fall Accident

caution wet floor sign at a corridorIf you or a loved one has been in a slip and fall accident, you may be wondering if you can be compensated for any injuries or other damages.

Under New York state law, you can bring a suit for damages against a person or entity if the person is liable. They are liable if they had authority to ensure proper safety in an area and did not do so. They can be found negligent if the incident then meets the following criteria.

1. The conditions were dangerous and conducive to someone slipping and falling.

The examples are numerous, but can include, for example, a wet floor in a store caused by someone’s dropping and spilling something, or an icy sidewalk.

2. A responsible party knew or should reasonably have known that the conditions were dangerous, and did nothing to remove the dangerous situation.

In the examples given above, the store managers and employees did nothing to clean up the mess or to put warning signs around the area; or the person or business responsible for the sidewalk did nothing to remove the ice.

3. There was sufficient time for the responsible party to take action.

A wet floor should be cleaned up immediately, but if the incident just happened before you turned the aisle corner and slipped in it, and the store manager can prove that, you may have difficulty convincing a jury of the store’s liability.

Similarly, if temperatures dropped to freezing overnight and your landlord had not removed the ice in front of your building at 4 a.m., a court may believe the landlord did not have sufficient time to remove the ice. At 8 a.m., it’s a different story: a landlord or employee could reasonably have been expected to remove it then.

Other circumstances may matter to a court as well. If, for example, a store manager put “danger” signs or cones around spilled material and then went to get a mop, a jury may think that you needed to obey the warning signs. If you are found to have not exercised proper caution in a dangerous situation, the jury may find you partially responsible.

How Do You Establish Proof in a Slip and Fall Case?

If you are involved in a slip and fall accident, premises liability lawyers recommend you take the following steps:

1. Document how the area looked.

Take pictures showing the dangerous conditions, from all angles and distances, if you can. Use your smartphone. If you don’t have a phone, take notes as soon as you can about what occurred.

2. Document any injuries.

It’s also very important to document any injuries, including scrapes or bruises. Cuts heal and bruises fade. If you do choose to file a claim, a jury will need to see any injuries. Take pictures if you can, and take notes as soon as possible if not.

3. See a physician.

If you were injured in any way, see a physician. A doctor’s notes about treating you can be used in any claim.

4. Talk to the person in authority.

If you slip and fall in a retail establishment, it’s a good idea to tell the person in authority (the store manager, or employee if the manager isn’t available). First, that person needs to know to fix the situation. Second, if you do bring a claim, the court may think it unusual that you said nothing at the time.

5. Document any loss to you.

Did the damage from the slip and fall cause you to lose wages from time off work? Did you have to go to physical therapy? It is also possible to bring damages for doctor’s bills, lost wages, and physical therapy expenses, among other losses.

Slip and Fall Accidents: What Are the Most Common Scenarios?

caution wet floor sign at a corridorIf slipping and falling seems like a minor accident that can’t do serious harm, think again. Slipping, tripping, and falling causes 15% of all accidental deaths in the United States. Only car crashes cause more fatalities.

What are the most common scenarios in which people slip and fall? Here are the top 5.

Number 1: Poorly Maintained Walking Surfaces

The leading reason people slip and fall is poor maintenance of surfaces. Whether it’s uneven or rough concrete sidewalks that have been inadequately repaired, cobblestones with uneven surfaces, area rugs that have not been properly secured to the floor, or loose tiles, floor surfaces can cause people to fall despite their best efforts. This is particularly true if people have no visible clue that their walking surfaces might be hazardous, as with unsecured area rugs or loose tiles.

Number 2: Wet surfaces

The second most common reason people slip and fall are wet surfaces. Whether it’s a building lobby that is wet from boots and shaken umbrellas or a grocery store floor wet from a broken bottle of salad dressing, wet surfaces can be treacherous.

Number 3: Weather

Weather creates precarious conditions in which tripping and falling is common. Ice and snow are easy to slip and fall on, particularly if the areas have not been shoveled or salted. Black ice may not be visible, and cause slips and falls. In addition, coming in from bad sun glare, whether off of snow or in the height of summer, can make visibility difficult, so can cause slips and falls.

Number 4: Poor Lighting

Low, no, or insufficient lighting in areas where people have to walk can be very dangerous and cause people to slip and fall simply because they can’t see. They may not be able to see hazards, like rough sidewalks, broken concrete, or potholes. Poor lighting may also cause people to misjudge distances stepping over curbs or walking on stairs. Slipping and falling can result.

Number 5: Inadequate Training in Commercial Establishments

When conditions that can lead to slips and falls occur, owners of commercial establishments have a responsibility to fix those conditions. Store managers, landlords, and property owners are obligated to make reasonable efforts to keep conditions safe for visitors. They need to train employees to place safety cones around wet areas, for example, and mop up liquids. Lighting needs to be installed or repaired. Snow and ice needs to be removed.

What To Do Immediately After a Slip and Fall

Falls causing injury are dangerous. They caused approximately 32,000 deaths in homes and public places during 2014, the last year for which statistics are available. In workplaces, falls caused nearly 600 additional deaths and 47,000 injuries.

Accidents in which people slip and fall as a result are called “slip and fall” accidents. If they happen in a public place, what should you do? If your slip and fall was caused by the negligence of another person or entity, such as a corporation, it is possible to bring a suit for damages. The suits can cover medical costs, lost wages and other financial and emotional costs.

Negligence in a slip and fall

Proving negligence, however, is not necessarily easy or straightforward. The law states that, for another person or entity to be responsible for someone’s slip and fall, the other person or entity had to have caused the slip and fall and be responsible for the safe maintenance of the area.

So if, for example, a carton of eggs fell on a grocery floor due to a careless stockperson and was not cleaned up, a slippage on the broken eggs could be the store’s responsibility. If another customer drops a carton of eggs, though, he or she would not be legally responsible, as the maintenance of the store is not the customer’s responsibility.

The other person or entity also needed to know that a condition that could cause someone to slip and fall existed, and to have had reasonable time to fix the situation. If a store’s walkways become covered with snow, it is the store’s responsibility to clear and salt the area. But they must have had reasonable time to do so. Slipping and falling during a snowstorm or immediately after one has stopped may cause a jury to rule that a storeowner did not have sufficient time to make the area safe.

A court case must also prove that a reasonable person would have known about the situation and would have perceived a duty to fix it. If a sidewalk in an apartment complex is in poor repair and difficult to walk on, the jury would presumably find that a hypothetical reasonable person would find the sidewalk dangerous.

In the event of a slip and fall

If you have a slip and fall accident, there are three things you should do.

1. Document Any Injuries

It is important to have a record of any injuries, including bruises. If you have a smartphone, take pictures immediately. Bruises can fade and cuts can heal. A court needs to have evidence that personal damage was caused.

Document where, when, and why the slip and fall occurred. Write it down immediately while your memory is still fresh.

If you do not have a smartphone or other camera, write down what your injuries were.

2. Report It to the Responsible Party

Report any injury to the responsible party. If it occurs in a store, report it to the store’s manager before you leave. If your landlord, report it to the landlord’s representative as soon as possible.

First, you want the situation rectified if the responsible party doesn’t know about it. Second, you want a record of what occurred. A jury could question why any incident wasn’t reported.

3. Seek Medical Attention

It’s wise to seek medical attention for any fall. A physician should look at any injury, bruise, or other damage. First, you may need medical attention, even if you feel okay. Second, again, the record is important.

Pool Safety Campaign Addresses Child Drownings

More than 75 percent of the drownings and pool-related injuries from 2012-2016 involved children younger than 5 years of age, states a recent report from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). This public health crisis is the focus of a new Pool Safely campaign, launched jointly by the CPSC and the Michael Phelps Foundation. Since its launch more than 7 years ago, the Pool Safely campaign has cultivated over 1,000 partners that assist in public outreach and education to help parents and families learn more about safety measures in and around pools and spas.

Some of the campaign partners include notable organizations like the National Drowning Prevention Alliance, Walmart, the U.S. YMCA, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the Red Cross, and the Boy Scouts of America. The goal of this nationwide initiative is to reduce the number of fatal and non-fatal drownings and entrapments in swimming pools and spas.

“We are making progress, but we need even more kids taking swim lessons, more adults serving as Water Watchers, more fences installed, and more people trained in CPR.  Today’s swimming lesson with Michael and his Foundation serves as a reminder of the importance of all children learning how to swim—no matter where they live or what their circumstance,” said CPSC Chairman Ann Marie Buerkle in a recent press release.

Fatal drownings and pool-related injuries

Recent statistics on pool drownings and injuries underscore the need for pool owners and operators to have proper safety measures in place. A staggering 50 percent of all drownings and pool injuries in children under 15 years of age happen at home, reports the CPSC.  Public or community swimming pools were the site of the majority of drownings in kids under the age of 9.

In order to keep children safe this summer and beyond, pool owners are encouraged to review the following checklist:

  • Never leave children unattended in a pool
  • Designate a “water watcher” if a lifeguard is not on duty
  • Install a safety barrier (at least 4-feet tall) around the perimeter of the pool
  • Use self-closing gates that open outward from the pool
  • Ensure pool water, equipment and surroundings are properly maintained and free of hazards
  • For those with an above ground pool, ensure the ladder is removed and the pool covered when not in use.

Pool owner liability

Safety authorities say that insufficient pool barriers and lack of supervision are the two leading causes of drowning and injury accidents among young children, particularly in residential pool settings. When proper precautions are not taken, and death or injury occurs, pool owners and operators may be held liable in a court of law.

Failing to install a perimeter fence, leaving your pool gate unlocked, allowing small children to swim without supervision, or failing to prevent access to your swimming pool may be considered acts of negligence. In addition, New York State law mandates that every swimming pool constructed or modified after 2006 must be equipped with a pool alarm that can detect when a child enters the water. Pool owners must also make sure that all suction outlets are covered to prevent entrapment.

Filing a Slip and Fall Lawsuit in New York

New York Slip and Fall Lawyers If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident due to the reckless disregard of an irresponsible New York property owner, filing a lawsuit may be a course of action that you should consider.

It is important, however, to locate New York slip and fall lawyers with the experience and success-rate that will ensure the best possible outcome for your case.  Edelman, Krasin & Jaye has been bringing our considerable resources to court for clients since 1952 and we can help you achieve the best possible outcome for your case.

Slip and fall accidents in NY

If you have slipped on, tripped over, or fallen from part of a property belonging to another party, the owner of that property may be liable for your injury if he or she allowed an uneven, worn, wet, or slippery surface to endanger you and cause your accident.  Accidents can take place because a spill renders a walkway slippery, because the surface of a walkway is uneven or worn enough to cause someone to trip, because a space is unreasonably cluttered, or because some part of the environment is damaged or faulty, allowing for someone to fall through or because of it.

To be liable, the responsible party would need to have known about the hazard for some time, but have done nothing about it; moreover, the hazard needs to have been something that a “reasonable” person would have taken care of in order to maintain a safe environment.  And the party suffering the accident would have had to have used the environment in the manner in which it was intended.

If the injured party is able to prove in court that another is liable for the accident, he or she may be able to claim compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning potential, or other damages, depending on the nature and extent of the injuries.

New York slip and fall lawyers:  how they can help

Don’t try to undertake slip and fall litigation on your own.  NY slip and fall attorneys who have relevant experience and resources are crucial to the success of your case and can take you through the necessary steps:
