Slip And Falls: When It Is Not Your Fault
It is understandable to want to assume responsibility for your actions. However, when the negligent oversight of others leads to injury — that could have and should have been avoided — you are not at fault.
Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents are the product of inadequate premises maintenance or management. Businesses, schools, commercial residential properties, governmental agencies, and other organizations or public facilities are required by law to create and maintain premises that are safe for people.
Many factors can cause slip-and-fall accidents, including:
- Weak or slick flooring
- Poor lighting conditions
- Snowy or icy walkways
- Poorly maintained stairwells, elevators or escalators
- Dangerous roads or sidewalks
- Cluttered walkways
- Code violations, like lack of handrails or guardrails
Demonstrating premises liability is not easy, and you need to act quickly to preserve evidence. It is in your best interests to contact an experienced, trial-ready lawyer who can take your case all the way to court if necessary. We can help you build a convincing case and can guide you through the legal process as painlessly and efficiently as possible.
