Slip and fall is a term used for a personal injury claim in which a person slips, trips, or falls, and is injured on someone else’s property. These cases usually fall under the category known as “premise liability” claims, because slip-and-fall accidents usually occur on property (or “premises”) owned or maintained by someone else.
In some cases, injuries resulting from slip-and-fall accidents require only minor care, but in many other instances, such injuries can be much more serious, potentially resulting in life-altering consequences. For this reason, property owners who fail to keep their premises safe for others, causing slip-and-fall accidents to occur, may be held liable for their negligence.
The firm’s premise liability attorneys handle a wide range of slip-and-fall claims, including, but not limited to:
- Slick flooring
- Loose or uneven carpeting
- Cracked sidewalks
- Insufficient lighting
- Debris or other walkway obstructions
In order to establish that a property owner knew of a possible hazardous condition, it must be shown that the owner created the condition, the owner knew the condition existed and failed to correct/address it, and the condition existed for such a length of time that the owner should have discovered and corrected it prior to the slip-and-fall incident in question. To efficiently prove such necessary elements, it is crucial to contact an experienced premise liability attorney. The skilled attorneys at the law firm of Neil H.
