Can you sue if you're injured in a 'haunted house?'

New York City is home to some truly terrifying haunted house experiences this time of year. For many New Yorkers, it's just not Halloween unless you pay to get your wits scared out of you by human or electronic monsters, ghosts and various undead creatures.

How you can stay safe when walking or biking near construction

Sometimes, you can't walk more than a few blocks in New York City without encountering a construction site. While it may not seem like it, companies doing construction have to adhere to safety regulations intended to help keep pedestrians, bicyclists and other passers-by safe near a site. Even with those regulations, pedestrians have been injured and killed by falling objects, equipment, tripping or slipping hazards and more.

Why seniors can face challenges with premises liability suits

As people get in to their senior years, their chances of falling typically increase. Their agility and balance aren't what they used to be. Neither is their eyesight, so it can be easier to overlook a stray extension cord or a buckle in the carpet. Further, seniors are more likely to be taking medications that can impact their cognitive skills.

Two common backyard dangers: trampolines and treehouses

Does your child make a beeline for a friend's house down the street after school every day because they have a trampoline in the backyard or a treehouse built in one of their enormous oak trees? Even if you've inspected a neighbor's backyard play equipment, it appears safe and they've assured you that they never let the kids play unsupervised, there are no guarantees when your child is at someone else's home.

What are the most common slip and fall injuries?

When you were a child, it may have been fun to fall into or out of something, like a pool or a tree. But falls are serious for everyone, especially adults who do not heal as quickly as younger people. Even a modest tumble can result in serious problems or even a permanent disability.

What happens after a slip and fall?

If you have to ask what a slip-and-fall lawsuit is, you may be in a bad spot because of an accident that was someone else's fault. Although we often go through life affected by other people's actions, they may be on the hook for the consequences if those actions probably led to injury or death.
