When Is a Property Owner Responsible for Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall Injury?
Maintenance to avoid trip and fall or slip and fall accidents is about more than just making a building, house, hotel, office, movie theater, shopping mall, restaurant, grocery store 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 throughout the property. A property owner must fix broken sidewalks, stairs, walkways, to make sure that they are not cracked, broken, or otherwise defective. These pedestrian walkways must be free from wet or slippery substances, which must be immediately cleaned or adequately marked. Included in these areas to be maintained by the establishment’s owners are the hallways and walkways which must remain clear and parking lots which must be well-lit, secure, and properly maintained. When a walking area on a property is not maintained in a safe condition, the property owner is responsible for the injuries sustained as a result of the slip and fall, perhaps from a slippery substance, or trip and fall accident from a broken or missing brick in the walkway.

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.
