When Is a Property Owner Responsible for Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall Injury?
When is a property owner responsible for personal injuries someone sustains because of elevator or escalators that are not properly maintained or are otherwise defective? Maintenance to avoid elevator or escalator-related accidents is about more than just making buildings, houses, hotels, offices, movie theaters, shopping malls, restaurants, grocery stores or any other building or space comfortable and visually appealing to tenants, visitors, customers or guests when they visit. It is about ensuring their safety as they move from floor to floor throughout the property safely. A property owner must fix and otherwise maintain broken elevator or escalators, to ensure that they are not cracked, broken, electrically sound, and otherwise not defective. These pedestrian elevators or escalators must be free from wet or slippery substances, which must be immediately cleaned or adequately marked. Elevator or escalator and staircase areas are to be maintained by the property owner, and must remain clear of debris and other obstacles; these include parking garage elevator or escalators which also must be well-lit, secure, and properly maintained. When an elevator or escalator on a property is not maintained in a safe condition, the property owner is responsible for the injuries sustained as a result of perhaps, a slippery substance, a broken or missing piece, damaged carpet, improper elevator or escalator height, negligent elevator or escalator design, broken railings, and just about any other dangerous condition brought about through the property owners negligence and failure to repair the defective and dangerous elevator or escalator condition If you or a family member has been injured due to an elevator or escalator-related accident, because property owners did not meet their obligations to ensure your safety when they knew or should have known that a dangerous condition existed on the elevator or escalator, and they failed to correct it, they are liable for the injuries that you sustained as a result of the defective or otherwise improperly maintained elevator or escalator. The Brooklyn law firm of Bisogno & Meyerson, LLP can help you receive the compensation you need for your medical expenses, loss of income and loss of future earning capacity, pain and suffering, and more, for the elevator or escalator-related injuries. Slipping and falling on an elevator or escalator or on a wet spot, or tripping over uneven or damaged escalator stairs, or torn carpet in an elevator, improperly functioning and maintained escalators and elevators, are among the most common types of elevator or escalator-related premises liability accidents.

Additional Consideration under New York’s Labor Laws
New York provides additional protection for construction area fall workers under several sections of the State Labor Laws. These include: N.Y. LAB. LAW § 200 : NY Code – Section 200: General duty to protect health and safety of employees; enforcement may make a property owner or contractor liable for an injury that occurred as a result of a hazardous condition of which they were aware or should have been aware. Section 240, called the “scaffold law,” states that a contractor or property owner (excluding owners of single- or two-family private homes not in direct control of the work being performed) is responsible for providing proper and non-defective safety devices to protect workers who perform their jobs from an elevated position. Section 241-6 states that property owners and, in some cases, general contractors are responsible for providing a safe working environment, including safety equipment, and cannot delegate that responsibility. As your attorneys, we can explain your construction area fall area fall options in detail. We are here to help you, whether you were injured as a construction area fall worker or as a visitor to a construction area fall site.
