Is Someone Else Liable for My Broken Wrist

Q
Is Someone Else Liable for My Broken Wrist?
A
That depends on how you broke your wrist. Someone else, specifically the owner or manager of the property on which you broke your wrist, may be liable for your injuries in certain situations. Specifically, the owner or manager of the property will be legally responsible for your injuries if they were negligent in the construction or maintenance of the property. For example, if there was a defect in the property that was known, or should’ve been known to the property owner or manager, and the property owner or manager did not take appropriate steps to warn you of the defect or to protect you from it, then you may be entitled to damages for the broken wrist injury you sustained in your New York or New Jersey slip and fall accident.
