Slip and Fall

Slip and Fall Injury

A slip-and-fall case happens when unsafe conditions cause an unsuspecting person to fall and get hurt. Slip-and-fall lawsuits are often trivialized in the media, but they can cause very serious and completely preventable injuries that deserve positive attention. A person may suffer brain injuries, back or spinal cord injuries, paralysis, permanent disability, broken or fractured bones, or internal bleeding.

Fortunately, victims of slip-and-fall accidents may be entitled to compensation if they can prove that the property owner was negligent. Property owners have a legal duty to ensure the premises are safe and free of potential hazards at all times. This includes making repairs or cleaning up messes in a timely manner or warning customers, guests, or patrons about the condition.

There are a number of common causes of slip-and-fall accidents, such as:

Exposed holes or ditches

Wet or slippery floors

Broken, cracked, or uneven pavement

Tattered or torn carpets

Broken stairs or handrails

Insufficient lighting

Obstructed walkways

Lack of warning signs
