Premises Liability and Slip-and-Fall Accidents

Premises liability law states that property owners are responsible for injuries that occur on their property as a result of inadequate upkeep or failure to warn guests of hazards. This law covers a wide range of accidents, but slip-and-fall accidents are the most common. Slip-and-fall accidents can occur as a result of bad flooring, wet or icy conditions, and more.

Where Can Slip-and-Fall Accidents Occur?

Slip-and-fall accidents can occur at any residential or commercial property. These accidents are common at places like grocery stores and shopping malls, where unattended product spills can result in personal injury; however, slip-and-fall accidents can just as easily occur at someone’s home or in an apartment complex or condominium. Slips and falls can take place both inside and outside, and the property owner is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of both.

Causes of Slip-and-Fall Accidents

A slip-and-fall accident can occur for any number of reasons, including:

  • Misplaced or unsecured mats and rugs
  • Uneven tile or flooring
  • Unmarked hazards, such as a warning sign about a wet floor
  • Potholes
  • Broken railings
  • Appliance cords stretched across walkways

It is important to note that most slip-and-fall accidents are preventable. Even if the property owner lacks the means to make necessary repairs, he or she must provide adequate warning about any potential hazards.

Slip-and-Fall Injuries

Injuries resulting from a slip-and-fall accident can range from minor injuries such as bruises and sprains to severe or life-threatening incidents. In some cases, these accidents can be fatal. Common injuries sustained from a slip-and-fall accident include:

How Our Slip-and-Fall Attorneys Can Help

The effects of a slip-and-fall injury can be severe. Victims can face a lifetime of medical treatments and rehabilitation, which can prevent them from ever returning to work. One of our attorneys can conduct a thorough investigation of the property conditions to determine the cause of the fall. Your attorney can then use this information to prove the property owner’s negligence.

Slips and falls can take place both inside and outside, and the property owner is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of both.

Our attorneys can fight for your right to compensation. Insurance companies tend to take advantage of victims who choose not to hire an attorney. Without an attorney, insurance companies will try to settle your claim for far less than you deserve. Our attorneys can negotiate with insurance companies to secure a settlement for your pain and suffering.
