Slips, Trips and Falls | Wet or Slippery Floors | Dangerous or Defective Flooring | Unsafe Steps, Stairs or Walkways | Elevator or Escalator Injuries | Unsafe Shelving or Displays
Under New York law, the retail tenant in commercial space, and at times the owner, has a duty to maintain the premises in a way that does not pose an unreasonable risk of injury to customers or others legally on the property. With retail space, there can be a lot of potential hazards, from goods and merchandise left on the floor to poorly or improperly maintained elevators or escalators, from shelves or displays that are overloaded to broken steps or stairways, torn carpet or other defects in flooring. If you or someone you love has been hurt in an accident at a retail store, you want a lawyer with a proven record of obtaining positive results.
