SLIP AND FALL INJURIES
Premises Liability Lawyers Protecting Your Rights
Slip and Fall, also known as »Slip, Trip and Fall,» is a term used to describe a type of personal injury accident arising from a variety of hazardous or dangerous conditions. The owner of the property where an injury occurred may be liable. However, if the owner exercised reasonable care such as posting warning signs, immediately removing snow from walkways and using a de-icer to remedy the hazard, or if the owner had no knowledge of the dangerous condition, he or she may not be liable.
Examples of hazardous conditions that may cause serious injury include, but are not limited to, floors, sidewalks or steps that are wet from water, ice, snow or spilled substances. Poorly lit areas, slick, rough or uneven flooring as well as obscured holes or open pits in yards and common areas also represent unexpected danger.
When you slip, trip or fall and are injured on someone else’s land or at a place of business, or if you are the owner of land or property where someone sustains a serious injury, you will have a time limit in which you may file a claim. It is wise to consult an attorney as soon as possible.
