Falls Among Older Adults
Each year, more than 2.5 million adults experience a devastating fall. Unfortunately, many of these injuries happen to those aged 65 and older. The most important statistic, however, is that nearly all of these accidents can be prevented.
Researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have found a slip and fall accident can most often be avoided when property managers and businesses provide properly lit areas, ramps or elevators, and properly installed railings where there is a stairway.
At Cellino & Barnes, our Queens slip and fall attorneys know how important these safety precautions are. When these features are not installed, it can often result in severe injuries. That’s why our attorneys are passionate about these cases and they will work on your behalf to get the compensation you need to recover.
Slip on Wet Floor or Spill
Many slip and fall injuries occur when a business or property manager neglects to provide proper maintenance. In Queens, there are several state laws and local ordinances that require these managers to provide a safe environment for customers, tenants, employees, and others.
One slip on a wet floor or a spill can result in long-term disability, broken bones, head trauma or even paralysis. Not only are these injuries painful, they can also be costly. It is not rare for families to be forced to pay thousands of dollars in medical bills following a slip and fall injury.
The Queens slip and fall lawyers at Cellino & Barnes know the laws and ordinances that can help you get the best possible results after a slip and fall accident. These laws were put in place to protect New Yorkers from negligence and our attorneys are passionate about making sure your accident doesn’t happen to others.
Slip on Icy Pavement
Winter storms in Queens are known to dump freezing rain, snow or sleet on city streets. This can often result in slippery roadways, parking lots, stairways, and sidewalks that can be dangerous for anyone who needs to use them on a regular basis.
