Slip and Fall Accidents
Accidents known as slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall are included under the broad heading of premises liability cases, and they can involve serious injuries, especially for older people. The basic concept of premises liability is that owners of property like stores and businesses have a duty to maintain a safe environment for the public. That means keeping floors, stairs, elevators, escalators and other building components in good working condition and free of hazards and obstacles.
Wet or uneven floors, loose stair railings, inadequate lighting and boxes or debris left in walkways or aisles are all common causes of slip-and-fall accidents that may result in a claim of negligence against a property owner. If the accident was caused by the negligence of a store or other business, we believe they should be held accountable.
