Slip and Fall Accidents & Premises Liability
When property owners are negligent in the upkeep of their property, a number of hazardous conditions may arise that could result in a slip and fall accident. Under most circumstances, property owners must ensure the safety of their property to preclude any possibility of a guest’s injury. When property owners fail to uphold this obligation, they may be held financially liable for any damages that result from a slip and fall accident.
Five Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents
Unfortunately, the following forms of negligence may contribute to the unsafe property conditions by which slip and fall accidents result:
- Uneven Sidewalks
- Loose and ripped carpets
- Obstructed walkways
- Slick flooring
- Poorly lit sidewalks
Slip and fall injuries are particularly troubling as proper property maintenance likely would have prevented the injury from ever occurring. Fortunately, victims do not have to face their injury and growing medical costs alone; an experienced premises liability attorney can help them pursue the funds they need to cover any damages.
