When we navigate the streets of our communities, we are constantly faced with hazards that put us in danger. Sidewalks are no exception.

These injuries can lead to overwhelming medical bills and lost wages that can seriously impact your future. Some injuries caused by a sidewalk accident can stay dormant for years before devastating your life.
PARKING LOT ACCIDENTS
Parking lots across the state of New York allow for easy access to a multitude of commercial, residential, and municipal properties, including schools, shopping centers, apartments, airports, and more. The owners of the property are responsible for the conditions of their parking facilities. They are obligated to monitor the surfaces regularly and reasonably keep their parking structures free of hazards.
When we enter a supermarket, we are generally unaware of the hazards that can cause us harm. We, as the consumers, hope that the staff at the local supermarket will take the necessary steps to ensure the safety of its customers. As we navigate the aisles, we can only hope that the staff consistently monitors and addresses anything in the store that can cause injury. Unfortunately, not all owners, supervisors, or staff members take their customersâ€™ safety into consideration.

Hotel management and staff are responsible for ensuring that the property does not have any hazards that can cause harm to a guest.
People in Westchester County take elevators at least a few times a week, if not every day. Step in, choose your floor, and get out. What could go wrong? Unfortunately, a lot. Elevator accidents are more common than you may realize but when they do happen, they are very serious. There are a number of reasons that an elevator accident may occur, whether it be mechanical or if there is an issue with the way the elevator was designed.
INADEQUATE SECURITY ACCIDENTS
No matter the type of establishment, property owners are responsible for making sure the people who are present are safe from any threats to their security. If a property owner does not take the necessary precautions to make sure the property is secure, guests can become seriously harmed or even killed due to violent acts by a third party. If you have been the victim of violence in NYC or Long Island area that could have been avoided if the property owner took greater security measures, you may be able to bring a lawsuit.
