All over the internet, you can find stories of people slipping or tripping and getting injured. But, these situations are often far from funny. Slip & fall, as well as trip & fall, accidents can result in serious—and sometimes life-long—harm, including, broken bones, head injuries, lacerations, and spinal cord injuries.
Slip-and-fall accidents can occur by stepping on:
A spilled substance, such as food or beverages, at the supermarket
A newly-waxed floor
Leaked motor oil in a parking lot
Rain due to a lack of floor mats on a rainy day
Trip-and-fall accidents can occur when you lose your footing due to:
A raised or cracked sidewalk
An unmarked speed bump in a parking lot
Uneven or loose carpeting
A parking block in a poorly light garage
Business and property owners have a legal duty to maintain their premises in safe and functional conditions. If their failure to do so causes you injuries, then they can be held liable for your past and future medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, and pain and suffering.
Unfortunately, despite your injuries, the business and/or property owner(s), along with their insurance provider, will almost always deny your claim and even go as far as trying to convince you that the accident was your fault. That is why you need an attorney on your side from day one.
