Slip and Fall Accidents

Premises liability holds property owners accountable if a slip and fall accident occurs due to negligence or misconduct in maintaining a safe property. Depending on the circumstances, the injured victim may be entitled to compensation for medical bills or emotional and physical distress if there is evidence that proves that the property owner is at fault through negligence.


In other cases, injuries sustained in a slip and fall accident may be the result of an individual’s own lack of awareness, inappropriate behavior or negligence. A professional slip and fall attorney can determine if the property owner may be held accountable for not practicing reasonable care or acting negligently.


Slip and Fall Accidents can occur for a number of reasons, such as:


  • Inclement Weather Conditions (Rain, Snow, Ice)
  • Spills
  • Poor Lighting
  • Unsafe Scaffolding
  • Changes in Flooring Type
  • Uneven Walking Surfaces
  • Dangerous Stairways, Railings or Ramps
  • Manholes With No Warning
  • Uneven Sidewalks
