At Whittel & Melton, we know the law and are committed to helping our clients recover fair compensation for injuries caused by poorly maintained properties and hazardous conditions. Once we are retained, we start asking the important questions to establish a slip and fall claim. For example, was there something dangerous the property owner should have know about? Did the property owner use reasonable care to keep the property safe? Has any accident happened there before?
Causes of Slip, Trip & Fall Accidents
Negligent property owners are often to blame for injuries suffered in a slip, trip and fall accident. Generally, property owners have the responsibility to keep their premises safe and free from hazards. A property owner can be held financially liable when someone slips or falls for numerous reasons, including:
- Wet or Slick Surfaces
- Uneven Walkways
- Obstructed Walkways
- Poor Lighting and Visibility
- Broken Railing and steep stair
Premises liability accidents can cause serious physical injuries such as broken bones and hips, spinal cord trauma, brain injuries, neck and back injuries and even wrongful death. These injuries can impact a person’s entire life and can result in a loss of employment, the loss of mobility, costly medical bills and permanent pain and suffering and disability.
Simply put, if a property owner fails to fix or provide ample warning about a dangerous condition on their property, they can be held responsible for the damages that a person who slips and falls on their property sustains.
