Slip and Fall Accidents

Serious injuries can occur due to something as simple as an icy sidewalk or wet floor. For this reason, premises liability laws have been put into place to ensure that individuals, agencies, and entities maintain reasonably safe property conditions in order to protect others from harm or injury. If a person slips due to an unsafe property condition and sustains injury as a result, the injured victim may have a right to file a premises liability claim against the property owner.

Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

Although slip and fall accidents can occur for numerous reasons, many are caused by the following types of unsafe property conditions:

  • Uncovered pits
  • Wet and unmarked floors
  • Oil spills
  • Icy pavements
  • Broken staircases
  • Uneven ground
  • Failure to install safety railings
  • Potholes

Who Can Be Held Liable for Your Injuries?

Similar to all premises liability accidents, slip and fall accidents must be handled on a case-by-case basis. However, before an individual can establish a premises liability claim, he or she must be able to prove that the unsafe condition was the direct cause of injury and that the accident occurred due to the negligence of the property owner. Still, certain conditions exist, which may leave the property owner not responsible for the accident or damages:

  • The dangerous condition was blatantly obvious
  • The property owner was unaware of the danger in an appropriate amount of time
  • The damages could have been avoided by the victim
  • If the property owner relayed information or posted signs regarding the potential danger

Because there are various ways in which a property owner can avoid responsibility for a premises liability victim’s injuries, it is wise for injured people to contact experienced legal representation right away. A skilled premises liability lawyer can examine the details of the victim’s cause and gather evidence to prove that the property owner should be held liable.
