Slip and Fall Attorney

Slip and fall accidents, a class of premises liability accidents, are among the most common personal injury cases in New York and throughout the United States. These accidents can occur at home, in the workplace, or on the premises of another party. In fact, a surprising 8 million people visit emergency rooms each year because of injuries suffered from a slip and fall accident.

Slip and Fall

Trip and fall accidents are also a leading cause of workers’ compensation claims.

There are several different types of slip and fall injuries included below:

  • Slippery surface falls
  • Stairway accidents
  • Falls from a terrace or balcony
  • Parking ramp falls
  • Sidewalk falls
  • Bathtub and shower falls

At TonaLaw, our experienced lawyers know how to fight for your right to compensation after you’ve been injured in a slip and fall incident. We offer free, no-obligation consultations for anyone who has suffered an injury due to someone else’s actions or negligence. To speak with a Long Island slip and fall attorney, call us at 1-833-TONALAW or contact us online today.

You Have a Right to Compensation

If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident in Long Island, it’s important to remember that you have legal rights. One such right is seeking compensation from whoever caused your injury. During your free consultation, our experienced lawyers will evaluate all the details of your case to determine how much compensation you may be entitled to.

Compensation, or damages, is generally divided into two categories: economic and noneconomic. Economic damages are intended to compensate you for the real money you lost due to the incident. This includes medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and more.

Non-economic damages, on the other hand, are intended to compensate you for the less tangible losses you suffered. These include pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment in life, and more.

In rare instances, punitive damages may also be assessed. These are intended to punish the defendant and discourage similar behavior in the future. However, punitive damages in New York are rare, especially in slip and fall cases. Our Long Island personal injury lawyers can help you determine what type of compensation you are entitled to.

Categories of People Who May Be Injured in Slip and Fall Cases

Property owners owe a certain level of care to those who visit their property. However, the level of care owed depends on the category of person who is on the property. There are three categories: trespasser, licensee, and invitee. The level of care owed increases as you move down the list.


Trespassers are those who are on the property illegally or are in an area of the property that is marked off-limits. You may think you don’t owe any level of care to trespassers, but you would be wrong. If trespassing occurs frequently and the property owner is aware, they must provide warning of any dangers on the property to potential trespassers, such as signage indicating unstable walkways. Otherwise, there is little to no legal duty to trespassers who slip and fall on someone else’s property.


Licensees are those who are permitted to be on a property but offer no financial benefit to the property owner by being there. Examples of licensees include plumbers, partygoers, and people entering a store to ask for directions, but not to shop. In general, property owners are only required to not cause intentional harm to licensees, including marking any hazards.


Invitees are given the highest level of protection. These are people who visit a property for the financial benefit of the property owner, such as a shopper. Property owners must inspect their property to ensure all reasonable care has been taken to avoid injury to invitees. Otherwise, they may be held liable for any injuries that happen if an invitee slips and falls.
