“Slip, trip and fall” is a name for situations where a person is injured by slipping or tripping and falling due to a dangerous or hazardous condition on the premises.
The fall can happen inside or outside of the property and be caused by conditions such as wet flooring, defective flooring, poorly lit steps, lack of hand rails, weather related situations or any hidden hazards.
Slip and Fall accidents are by far the most common type of “premises liability”. Property owners and businesses have a duty to provide a safe environment for people on their property.
Analysis of the injury and the resulting treatment is critical in these cases. Ankle and wrist injuries are common in slip & falls and often involve severe lifelong consequences. Surgical procedures can involve ligament repairs, fracture repairs, and even fusion of incompletely healed ankles and wrists.
Other premises liability claims made for hazardous conditions include:
Improperly secured mats and rugs
Early investigation is critical in slip & fall cases. Often defects are quickly repaired, property ownership changes hands and critical witnesses can be difficult to locate if you wait too long. Contact our office today for advice on your matter.
