At The Law Offices of Francis X. Young, our New York City, White Plains, and Hudson Valley slip and fall attorneys can help victims recover compensation for injuries that they may have sustained–including any treatment costs that may be related to their injury.
In New York State, the Department of Health reports fall-related injuries are the leading cause of injury hospitalizations among children ages 0-14 and adults 25 years and older. Falls, both residential and occupational, are the leading cause of unintentional injury deaths for those 45 years and older. There is also a heavy financial burden to fall-related injuries with a yearly cost of $1.3 billion in New York State for hospitalizations alone.
Often regarded as one of the most common injuries in a work environment, many incidents are simply not reported due to the victim’s feeling of embarrassment by the accident or out of fear of firing or harassment by their employers.
