Personal Injury: Slip and Fall Lawyers

Slip, Trip and Fall Accident Lawyer

Slip/trip and fall accidents are common and can happen anywhere, from poorly taken care of properties to workplace hazards. Liability for incidents of this sort can fall to whomever is in legal, physical possession of a premise or is responsible for properly maintaining it, including schools, stores and restaurants, private residential properties, government-owned public properties, healthcare facilities, and landlords.

Those who own any property are obligated to take reasonable steps to keep it safe and free of any possible hazards. Owners as well as contractors and maintenance companies can be held liable for a slip, trip or fall accident if they:

  • Fail to clean up a spill within a reasonable amount of time.
  • Fail to salt, sand or remove ice and snow on a walkway or driveway.
  • Fail to remove debris foreseen to pose a possible danger.
  • Fail to correct uneven walking surfaces.
  • Fail to maintain infrastructure that is in need of repair.
  • Fail to provide warnings or clear signage for hazards.
  • Fail to inspect for and identify hazards.
  • Fail to provide adequate lighting.
  • Provide alcohol to individuals, resulting in any foreseeable injury.
  • Fail to provide a drowning hazard by a body of water on their property.

Individuals can often obtain significant compensation for injuries arising from slip/trip and fall accidents occurring on improperly maintained and dangerous premises. Under certain circumstances, injured individuals may have only ten days to initiate proceedings. If you were injured in this type of accident, obtaining immediate legal advice and taking photographs and measurements of the area where the incident occurred to document the unsafe conditions is essential.
