Slip & Fall / Premises Liability
Slip and fall accidents and premises liability accidents happen when people fall or slip on a surface or walkway or encounter a dangerous condition at a property. These injuries can be very serious and can oftentimes be debilitating. The property owner or government entity can be responsible for these types of accidents since they are usually responsible for maintaining the safety of an area. If you were on someone else’s property and injured yourself due to a dangerous condition on a property, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents
There are several ways that a slip and fall accident can occur. When there is an object in a walking path, like a box blocking a walkway, then this can lead to a slip and fall accident. If there is an obstruction in the walkway that was not previously there, then a slip and fall accident could happen. Holes in a walking space, like an open manhole cover, can cause this type of accident, as well. Lastly, a foreign substance on the floor, like grease, water, or other substance, can cause someone to slip and result in injury.
Premises liability accidents can cause very serious injuries. It is very important that property owners address any dangerous conditions to their property right away. Damaged walkways, driveways, and other walking paths must be safe. If there are any dangerous conditions, these conditions must be properly noted with signs.
