Slip and Fall Accidents

If you’ve been hurt in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property and the property owner’s negligence led to the dangerous or unsafe conditions that resulted in your accident, a knowledgeable slip and fall attorney can be a crucial first step to understanding and protecting your legal rights.

Slip, trip or fall injury cases fall under premises liability law, a type of law that holds property owners responsible for injuries that occur on their property. For a premises liability case to be successful, you must be able to prove:

  1. The condition of the property was dangerous.
  2. The owner knew, or should have known, about the dangerous condition.
  3. The owner had a reasonable opportunity to correct or warn of the condition, which was not reasonably open and obvious to the injured party at the time of the accident.

Some of the most common causes of slip and fall injuries include:

  • Wet surfaces
  • Unmarked hazards
  • Icy or slippery conditions
  • Poorly lit public spaces
  • Parking lot potholes
  • Torn carpeting
  • Uneven floors
  • Neglect
