How did your slip and fall accident happen?
Slip and fall accidents often occur because a property owner failed to take precautions to prevent such an accident. When this occurs, the property owner can be held responsible for your injury under a legal concept known as “premises liability” law. Such laws state that a property owner can be held legally responsible when a slip and fall accident occurs due to negligence. Common causes of slips and fall accidents due to negligence include:
- Unmarked hazard on floor – Boxes, cleaning equipment, etc.
- Ice-covered sidewalks – Property owners have a legal responsibility to keep sidewalks free of ice, snow and other hazards.
- Water on floor – Whether it’s a spilled drink in a restaurant or water left on the floor by a janitor, water on the floor can be very dangerous.
- Uneven surfaces on floor – Uneven stairs, floorboards can be hazardous.
- Loose handrails – If handrails are not properly secured, you or someone else can easily slip and fall down the stairs.
- Poor lighting – If you cannot see where you’re walking, you can easily trip and fall and hurt yourself.

We know how to investigate slip and fall accidents – from reviewing inspection reports to other important evidence. We also often consult with experts in such cases.
