Common Slip & Fall Cases
Property owners, landlords and homeowners each have a responsibility to ensure their walkways, parking lots, floors and overall property are safe and hazard-free at all times. If this is not the case and you become injured due to their negligence, they can be held responsible for your damages. Common causes of slip and fall accidents include:
Slippery Surfaces: Rain, hail and snow cause slippery & icy conditions on both pavements and building entrances. Business owners must ensure these weather-related dangers are constantly cleaned, as well as put up warning signs for a slippery surface. If they do not and you’ve suffered injuries from a slip & fall, they could be liable for your damages, pain & suffering.
Inadequate Lighting: Dimly lit hallways, staircases and parking lots can lead to slip and fall accidents when you are unable to see where you’re going. The property owner can be liable for these damages, because they did not ensure adequate lighting systems were installed and/or properly working.
Food & Beverage Spills: Any establishment that serves food or beverages, from restaurants to gas stations and supermarkets, has a responsibility to ensure spills are cleaned up quickly. If left sitting unattended or with no warning for patrons, a severe slip and fall accident could happen to customers.
Cracked Pavement: Similar to ensuring all flooring and stairways are free and clear of food, water or lighting dangers, the surface material must also be safe. Cracks in pavement, chipped tiles, holes in sidewalks and loose carpeting are all easy & obvious ways a serious fall and injury could happen.
