SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENTS

Slip and fall accidents can be caused by a temporary condition, such as a spill or a crumpled mat, or by dangerous condition such as an uneven sidewalk or neglected repairs. In either event, it is important to seek medical attention immediately.

It is also important to document the condition as quickly as possible, and to obtain the contact information of witnesses to the injury. Often, conditions that caused the accident are quickly cleared or repaired before an investigation can be completed.

Slip and Fall Accident

Other premises liability cases may result if the condition of the property was allowed to become unsafe, was not properly secured, contained toxic substances, had an inadequately secured pool, or contained a fire hazard. These unsafe conditions may result in any number of injuries including rape, animal bites, other serious injuries or even death.






   

If you were lawfully present on a property and were injured, the property owner or occupier has the
responsibility to use a reasonable standard of judgment to provide a safe and secure condition.
