Slip and Fall

Property owners have an obligation to keep their premises are free from dangerous conditions and thus safe for all guests or customers. This can apply to public or private property. Slip and fall accidents are some of the most common premises liability claims, and they frequently stem from causes that include, but are not limited to:

  • Dangerous Stairways
  • Icy Surfaces
  • Inadequate Lighting
  • Malfunctioning Escalators
  • Potholes or Other Road Hazards
  • Safety Code Violations
  • Torn Carpeting
  • Unbalanced Flooring
  • Uneven or Cracked Sidewalks
  • Wet Or Slippery Floors

When a person takes a hard fall after slipping in one of these locations, he or she could sustain soft tissue issues or broken bones that result in lost wages and cause pain and suffering. In more serious falls, victims may suffer particularly serious brain, neck, or spinal cord injuries that can have a lifetime of consequences and lead to staggering medical and rehabilitation expenses.

If a person is injured because of an unsafe condition on another party’s property that should have been seen and corrected, then the property owner can be legally considered negligent. Failure to correct the dangers or warn visitors of the conditions can make the property owner liable for all financial damages incurred by the people who are injured because of them.

Whether the property owner is a private homeowner or a business, there will usually be an insurance company that is in charge of handling any personal injury claims. In these types of cases, insurance adjusters will frequently claim that the injured person is actually the one who was at fault. Insurance companies will deny any negligence and argue that the victim did not make a reasonable effort to avoid the accident.
