A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of a man who was injured, allegedly due to negligent conditions at the parking garage on the premises of Georgetown Square Condominiums in Poughkeepsie, New York.

The suit was filed in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, Dutchess County, and names Georgetown Square Condominiums, Howard Himelstein, Emily Z. Himelstein, River Management Development and Realty, Inc., as defendants.The man is represented by the national law firm Parker Waichman LLP.

According to the lawsuit, the man was a tenant of the building, leasing an apartment from one of the defendants, when on Feb. 29, 2012, he tripped and fell. The lawsuit claims he suffered severe and permanent injuries because of the dangerous and defective conditions on the premises of the parking lot and condominium. The man suffered from pain, shock and mental anguish as a result of his injury, the lawsuit alleges. The lawsuit further alleges that these damages will lead to ongoing expenses for medical care and attention. Furthermore, the lawsuit alleges that the man was and will continue to be unable to perform normal activities and that there was no negligence on his part in any way.

Trip and fall accidents happen far too often. These types of injuries might be caused by a wet floor with no caution sign, an uneven sidewalk or other negligent conditions that lead to a trip and fall. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls can lead to hip fractures, head injuries and may increase the risk of early death. The CDC also reports that 20 to 30 percent of people who fall suffer from an injury.
