Every year, thousands of people suffer serious injuries as a result of slip-and-fall accidents. These accidents are often caused because property owners have failed to responsibly manage their properties.
Property owners should take appropriate precautions to limit slip-and-fall accidents, which may be caused by a variety of factors, including:
Snow and ice: Did you fall in the parking lot of a supermarket, retail store, business office or other property? Parking lots and other property structures should be properly maintained, including appropriate snow and ice remediation.
Wet floors: Did you fall because of a wet or slippery floor? While stores must clean their floors, they must also take adequate steps to prevent unnecessary risk of harm to others. Did the store have a sign that warned you about the potential hazard of a wet floor? Were other steps taken to prevent your fall? If not, you may be entitled to compensation.
Objects on the ground and other hazards: People at grocery stores, movie theaters and other retail stores can be seriously injured if they trip over an object that has been left on the ground. Store managers and employees should take appropriate precautions to prevent slip-and-fall accidents caused by obstructed walkways
