Could Your Slip-and-Fall Accident Have Been Avoided?

Often, there is no one to blame for slip-, trip-and-fall accidents, but you shouldn't necessarily assume that is the case in your situation. Commercial and residential property owners can be held accountable for failing to take proper precautions to avoid slip-and-fall accidents on their premises, including:

  • Sidewalks
  • Walkways
  • Office hallways
  • City parks
  • Parking lots and garages
  • Grocery stores
  • Around swimming pools
  • Schools and playgrounds

We can conduct an investigation to understand if the property owner acted in a negligent manner. For example, if slippery floors were not addressed in a timely manner, we may be able to pursue a personal injury claim against the property owner. If the property owner failed to shovel or put salt down on icy sidewalks, this may have contributed to your slip-and-fall accident.

Employment records may reveal that the maintenance staff was recently cut in half leading to an increase in slip-and-fall accidents from poorly maintaining the premise. In some cases, we may review surveillance videos to understand if a parking lot was poorly lit at night creating a safety hazard. Every premises liability claim is fact specific. We prepare our claims with enough evidence to prove fault in trial. Our attorneys do this so insurance adjusters know we are ready to take them on in court.
