Slip and Fall Injuries & Premises Liability Attorney

Who Is Liable for Dangerous Conditions?

If there is a broken railing, a wet floor, or a sidewalk trip hazard, the property owner must fix it or warn people of the danger. Otherwise, the hazard can result in a slip and fall accident, retail accident, pedestrian accident, or another type of premises accident like falling merchandise. Any of these can ultimately lead to serious and even catastrophic injuries.

Property owners have a legal responsibility to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition so it doesn’t pose a danger to others. When they fail to do this, they can be held liable for accidents and resulting injuries. If you have been injured call our firm today. Our legal team is ready to fight for you!

What Is A Premises Liability Claim?

Slip and fall accidents are some of the most common types of premises liability claims. While many people do not think of slip and falls as particularly dangerous, they can actually result in serious injuries like broken bones, head and spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injury, paralysis, and more.

Examples of property owner duty of care include:

  • Homeowners need to keep their sidewalks shoveled and free of ice in the winter and repair broken or crumbling stairs.
  • Municipalities need to maintain public sidewalks, roadways, and playground equipment in parks so they don’t risk injuring people.
  • Owners of retail stores, shopping malls, office buildings, sports arenas, and anywhere else open to the public must keep their property well-lit and safe.
