Slip and Fall liability cases are those where accidents occur on someone’s property. If the owner of the premises has not followed their legal obligation to provide a safe environment for their guests and visitors, that owner should be subject to a claim. This is often the case with slip and fall injuries. Sometimes the cause of slip and falls are wet floors that have not been made known by signs and warnings. Failure to provide adequate warnings or barriers around wet floors is a negligent action at the owner’s expense. These injuries are preventable and should be taken seriously by the owner of the premises, as severe injuries can occur.
When you are unaware of potential hazards due to inadequate signage, that would be considered a case for a personal injury claim. This includes if the property owner was aware of unsafe conditions and made no effort to warn others of the hazards, make reasonable repairs, or take appropriate action.
If you have been injured due to a slip and fall accident on another person’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for the cost of your medical treatment. If I can prove that the property owner did not take reasonable steps to provide a safe environment for you, you have the right to ask for a financial recovery from the person or company. In most cases, the cost of your medical treatment, lost wages, out-of-pocket expenses, and pain and suffering will be covered by the building owner’s insurance policy.
