Slip and Fall Attorney

slip and fall attorneySlip and fall describes a type of personal injury case where a person falls and suffers injury as a result of a dangerous condition on the property of another.

Falls are consistently the leading cause of injury-producing accidents, and account for more than 1 million injuries each year in the United States. The result of a slip and fall may be serious injury, including broken bones, muscle strains, back injury, spinal cord injury and brain injury. These injuries may be temporary or may be permanent, and may even cause death.

Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are caused by conditions such as wet floors, spilled liquids, uneven floors, improperly marked steps and landings, a lack of handrails or safety markings, torn or loose carpeting, poor lighting, narrow stairs, stairs and landings not built to code, abrupt changes in floor level, potholes, grease in parking lots, and a variety of other hazards.

A property owner may be liable for your injuries suffered on their property under the theory of premises liability, where the property owner breached his duty to provide you with a safe environment, or to warn you of any known hazardous conditions.
