Travel in New York can be stressful and unwanted injuries can ruin more than your business or vacation plans. Many times these injury claims involve trip and fall or slip and fall hazards. For example, when hotel guests are walking along sidewalks or walkways, they have a right to expect a safe and non-slippery surface.
New York is a popular tourist and business destination and visitors don’t expect to slip or fall or otherwise hurt themselves at a hotel, recreational activity, conference or sporting event. Unfortunately accidents happen when you least expect them.

Get immediate medical attention
File an accident report
Take pictures of the unsafe area as soon as possible. You can even use your cell phone to take a quick shot.
