Kingston Slip and Fall Attorneys Video Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have a case if I slipped on ice and got injured?
If you were injured as a result of slipping on ice, you probably have a case. The property owner has a non-delegable duty under the law to keep their property in a reasonably safe condition. We generally say, if there is ice on your property, it’s not safe. That accident shouldn’t have happened, that accident was avoidable.
And typically the client would come into our office, we would take steps to identify the property owner, maybe we’ll pull the property deed, do an internet search, identify the business… something like that. We will then contact that property owner, put them on notice that our client was injured, that we are investigating a potential claim and that they should notify their insurance company because we intend to prove that the property owner failed to satisfy their legal burden to keep their property safe.
