There’s nothing like summer vacation. But whether you’re heading to someplace exotic, or just hopping the train to the beach, you still want to be safe. When you’re in that vacation mindset, and especially when you’re in an unfamiliar place, it’s easy to forget the basics: Slow down. Look both ways. Use common sense.
The places you go have a responsibility too. Airports, train stations, subways and other transportation hubs are required to provide safe facilities for all customers. You may have heard this referred to as “premises liability.” That includes things like ensuring walkways are dry (no air conditioning drips causing slippery surfaces), ramps are free from obstacles (like trash that hasn’t actually been thrown out), and any routes you need to take are easily passable (despite any construction-caused detours).
So take care when you travel. But if the worst happens, and you are in an accident you think is due to negligence on the part of a transportation agency, a landlord or other party, you should call the team at Avanzino & Moreno at 718.802.1616. We know premises liability law inside and out, and we have a proven track record working—and winning—on behalf of our clients. The consultation is free, but the peace of mind you’ll have knowing you have the experts on your side is priceless.
Wherever you go this summer, safe travels!
