Slip-and-Fall Injuries / Premises Liability
If you have been injured on someone else’s property, you might be entitled to money to compensate you for past and future medical bills, lost wages, and pain & suffering.
Premises liability is a term used to define the legal obligation that a property owner has for damages and accidents that happen on their property. To prevent accidents, property owners should be careful in maintaining safe premises and cautioning guests of potential perils. Property owners can be held responsible for injuries that happen because of hazardous conditions on their property. Government entities can also be owners and can be held responsible for injuries that occur on public property.
Injuries can also occur when individuals use equipment on the owner’s property, slips and falls, or when the owner neglects to provides adequate security. Slip and fall accidents happen for many reasons including:
- Obstructions on the floor or walkway
- Slick flooring
- Uneven walkways
- Unbalanced flooring
- Unfavorable weather conditions (such as ice, snow, or rain)
- Rippled carpeting
- Poorly lit or unmarked pathways or stairs
Injuries can run from scratches and bruises to catastrophic injuries that end with permanent disability or even death.
