Trip and fall accidents are second only to vehicle accidents in the number of fatalities every year; representing 15% of all fatal accidents. Trip and fall accidents are unforeseen occurrences that can have very serious consequences. Injuries sustained during a NYC trip and fall accident can be simple as a bruised tail bone to as serious as a fatal cranial injury.

Injuries sustained during a trip and fall accident can include:

  • Wrist injuries
  • Ankle and leg injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Head and cranial injuries
  • Internal injuries

Any injuries sustained during a trip and fall accident on someone’s property can be the responsibility of the property owner if they were negligent, which means they may be liable for any costs incurred for medical expenses, loss of wages, and any legal or court fees.
