Reliable Lawyer for Slipping on Wet Floors in the Bronx
Slip and fall accidents often occur as a result of a dangerous substance on the ground or floor. Slip and fall accidents commonly occur as a result of:
- recently mopped floors
- slippery substances on floors
- slippery floor surfaces (e.g., polished marble)
- inadequate lighting
- inadequate warning sign or barrier
In accidents that result from recently mopped floors, the injured party's attorney must generally prove that the area was mopped by the defendant (often the superintendent) and that adequate caution signs were not present. In cases where the injured party slips on a slippery substance on the floor, it must generally be shown that the defendant either created the dangerous condition or knew about the dangerous condition prior to the accident.
