The personal injury attorneys you can count on
A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere, including:
- Shopping malls
- Amusement parks
- Parking lots
- Private homes
Slip and fall accidents are often the result of property owner negligence. Property owners are responsible for making sure that their premises are safe for all visitors. When they are aware of a slipping or tripping hazard, they must take steps to correct the hazard or warn visitors that it exists.
A slip and fall accident can happen because of slippery floors, loose floorboards, damaged carpeting, poor lighting, missing handrails on stairs, icy sidewalks or parking lots and other factors. These accidents can result in broken bones, lacerations and injuries to the head, neck, shoulders or back. Recovery take months or even longer.
Negligent property owners often deny doing anything wrong and don’t take responsibility for slip and fall accidents. They may even claim it was your fault that you fell. Insurance companies may try to limit your compensation by arguing that your injuries aren’t that serious. They may even try to deny liability completely.
