Slip and Fall Accidents
“Slip and fall” is a term for an accident when someone slips or trips on something, causing them to fall. Slip and fall accidents are the most common type of premises liability cases, and they center on the question of a property owner’s duty to care for the property and avoid slip and fall hazards.
Some common slip and fall hazards include:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Items in walkways
- Cords not secured to the wall
- Loose carpet or rugs
- Worn flooring
- Dangerous steps, ramps, or stairs
- Failure to warn when a floor is wet
To get compensation in a slip and fall case, you must prove either that the defendant created the hazard that led to the accident or that the defendant knew or should have known about the danger and did not remove or repair it. This can often be difficult to prove since establishing when a given hazard first appeared can be challenging.
That is why Lucas, Macyszyn, & Dyer Injury Firm aggressively represents victims of slip and fall accidents – to help ensure they prove their claims and receive full compensation for their injuries.
Slip and falls can cause serious injuries, including fractures, back injuries, concussions, soft tissue injuries, and more. Always report the accident to the premises owner, get the medical attention you need, and call our office to learn about your rights.
