Slip and Fall Lawyer

Slip and fall accidents are generally considered to be premises liability cases. This usually happens when a property owner is negligent in the repair, upkeep and maintenance of a property. Most states have laws requiring property owners to maintain their property to prevent risk or harm to property visitors. These laws typically pertain to business owners and homeowners alike.

In most states, property owners have a duty to keep their sidewalks, passageways, floors and aisles in reasonably safe condition. This also includes a reasonable effort they must take to keep their premises free of all hazardous conditions that might lead to injury or damage.

Premises liability cases include, but are not limited to:

  • Slip and fall situations in commercial establishments caused by  foreign substances or liquids
  • Trip and fall situations caused by unsafe property conditions
  • Construction site accidents

If you have been injured due to a property owner or business owner failing to provide a safe environment, you might have a right to open a case for various damages incurred from your injury. These damages include, but are not limited to:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages.

If you are involved in a slip and fall accident, you should avoid making any detailed statements concerning fault, get the names of any owners or managers on the property, write down any names and contact information of witnesses, seek medical attention and never give any recorded statement to an insurance adjuster.
