Slip on a Spill
Chances are you’ve seen the sign before: reading, “CAUTION: wet floor.” These signs serve as a warning to store patrons and others walking by, but sometimes these signs are not properly placed and that can result in unnecessary accidents.
In most cases, it is the property owner’s responsibility to provide a safe environment for everyone. If you’ve been hurt after slipping on a spill that wasn’t promptly cleared, that property may be liable for your injuries.
The Brooklyn slip and fall attorneys at Cellino & Barnes have helped thousands of clients get more than $2 billion in settlements and verdicts. Many of these cases are the result of a fall on a wet floor or a slip on a spill inside a neighborhood business.
Fall on an Icy Sidewalk
A Brooklyn winter can turn your daily commute into an obstacle course. Unfortunately, obstacles like slush, sleet, snow, and ice can result in serious and life-changing injuries for some. That’s why state and New York City officials wrote laws to make properties as safe as possible for pedestrians.
In New York City, a property owner is required to remove snow and debris from public walking areas. Often, the same property owners neglect to clear a path in a timely manner and sometimes, a person can get hurt.
The Brooklyn slip and fall attorneys at Cellino & Barnes have handled many cases like this and have decades of combined experience fighting against negligence.
Fall on Uneven Pavement
As difficult as a Brooklyn winter can be, summertime has troubles as well. Groundwater can freeze during the winter months and expand, cracking cement surfaces. Once spring arrives, the melting ice can create potholes and deep crevices in walkways and parking lots, creating a major hazard to the folks who use these paths regularly.

At Cellino & Barnes, our Brooklyn slip and fall lawyers help injured clients every day and each of our attorneys know the ways you could get compensation after a fall on a neglected sidewalk, pathway or parking lot.
