Our Lawyers Understand What Is Required to Prove Negligence Caused Your Injuries
Property owners and the people or entities that control property have legal obligations to people who answer their premises.
Their legal duty is to keep the premises reasonably safe and to take reasonable steps to repair or warn about hazardous conditions on their property. The duty extends to dangerous conditions the property owner knows about or should know about. In other words, there is also an obligation related to having an awareness of hazardous conditions.
The failure to uphold these standards results in negligence. When you trip and fall in the Hamptons because of someone’s negligence, you might be entitled to file a claim with an insurance company or file a premises liability lawsuit.
These are some of the considerations that might come into play when determining if someone was negligent:
- Did the property owner create a dangerous condition that caused your trip and fall?
- Did the property owner know there was a danger?
- Did they know about the danger and fail to fix it?
- Were they unaware of the hazard, but if they had been reasonable, they would have known about it?
- Did something prevent them from becoming aware of the hazard?
- Could someone have warned visitors to the property about the dangerous conditions?
- Did someone try to fix the dangerous condition but do so in a negligent manner?
- Did someone violate a safety policy or regulation?
Our lawyers have experience handling all types of trip and fall claims. We know what questions to ask and where to look for and prove negligence.

All of these injuries can be compensable. It is critical that after a slip and fall accident, you seek medical attention right away, so you have a record of your injuries.
