THE LAW MAY APPLY DIFFERENT STANDARDS FOR SLIP AND FALL INJURIES RELATED TO RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES

For many sports enthusiasts, if they do not get hurt while participating in sports and other recreational activities, they did not have fun. Whether it's a painful neck injury due to a slip on a muddy baseball field while playing in a local league or a broken leg from bumpy ice at a privately owned skating rink, New York courts may not accept these as valid slip and fall cases.

When you participate in potentially dangerous activities, you typically accept the risks involved. In fact, as explained by Lawyers.com, some facilities such as gyms require you to sign a contract indicating you use their facilities and equipment at your own risk. However, this does not mean the law never finds anyone liable for sports and recreational injuries in slip and fall claims. If you sustain a few minor cuts and bruises, you should probably apply first aid and move on. However, for serious injuries, consider seeking legal support.

A wet gym floor or an infrequently replaced treadmill belt can be valid grounds for a slip and fall claim. Or, even if you fall through no fault of the facility, suffering head injuries because of substandard helmet design can lead to a successful product liability suit against the helmet manufacturer. A discussion with an experienced New York slip and fall accident attorney can help identify all available legal options.

Any slip and fall accident can offer challenges when developing proof of liability. However, after thoroughly assessing your claim, the attorneys at Rubin & Licatesi, P.C. can often negotiate full and fair settlement with the negligent parties. We conduct courtroom-quality investigations for every case to help you pursue the compensation you deserve.
