SLIP & FALL
Slip and fall accidents can happen when you least expect them. One minute you’re minding your business, walking along, and the next you are writhing on the floor in pain. Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents are referred to as premises liability legal actions. These cases can be filed by a victim who is hurt because of the negligence or carelessness of someone else.
Unfortunately, slip and fall accidents are serious legal
cases that too often produce devastating consequences for victims. You may have been severely injured, left unable to work, and facing a mountain of steep medical bills. It’s common to feel like your life is falling apart around you.
There are many different reasons why you might slip and fall and become injured. Below is a list of some conditions that can cause injury and may be the basis for a premises liability claim:
Cracked or crumbling staircases
Improperly secured mats
Standing puddles of water
Stairways and steps that are in violation of building safety codes
Poorly maintained escalators, elevators, or moving walkways
