Establishing Negligence in a Slip-and-Fall Case
A slip-and-fall case is part of an overarching branch of law known as premises liability. Premises liability is based upon the requirement that a person, business, or organization is expected to maintain their property to a certain level that keeps it safe.
When a property owner doesn't keep their premises safe and secure, injuries and assaults can happen, including a slip-and-fall accident. Typically, a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident occur because of the following:
- Unsafe stairways
- Unacceptable or missing handrails on stairways
- Wet, slippery, or uneven walking surfaces
- Lack of signage warning about dangerous premises
- Not keeping the property clear of debris, snow, ice, or other hazards
Anytime an injury is the result of a person or business's negligence, you may have legal recourse to file a lawsuit. Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall injuries can be serious and long-lasting. They can include fractures, chronic pain, joint damage, and even brain injuries. Don't hesitate to seek help from our attorneys so we can get you compensation for the following:
- Medical bills
- Loss of income
- Loss of benefits
- Pain and suffering
