Slip and Falls: Unsafe Stairs And Wet Floors Injury Attorneys
Champaign Premises Liability Lawyers
Property owners have a responsibility to keep premises safe, and when they fail to meet this responsibility, serious accidents and injuries may occur. Issues such as unsafe stairways and wet floors are hazards that can result in significant harm to shoppers, workers’ and others who are legally on these properties. If you or a family member has been harmed in an accident, it is important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney about your options.
At the law firm of Woodruff Johnson & Evans, we know the devastation that can accompany a serious injury. Don’t accept that your injury was “just an accident,” or an “act of God” that no one could have prevented. Let us investigate to see whether someone could have — and should have — taken precautions that would have prevented your accident.
Aurora Unsafe and Dangerous Areas Lawyers
In order to prove liability in a case involving unsafe stairs, wet floors and other conditions that cause an accident, it must be shown that:
- You fell or were otherwise injured due to unsafe conditions
- The store had notice of the unsafe condition, had an opportunity to correct that condition, and failed to do so.
The mere posting of a sign does not, by itself, absolve an owner from liability in the case of a dangerous premises accident. If there was a spill that should have been cleaned up, but was not, that may still be considered negligence, even if there is a yellow “wet floor” sign. Talk with us about your situation and learn more about your options.
