Typical Reasons for a Slip & Fall
- Sidewalks or driveways are too steep, or cement is broken
- Dangerous construction site area
- Poorly lit hallways
- Liquid or water is present on the floor
- Object fallen into walkway
- Stair or railings are not secured into the floor/wall correctly
- Carpet is torn or has holes
- Pothole in the road
- Other property hazards
It’s important to note that many of these hazards do not necessarily give someone grounds to file a premises liability lawsuit. If the injured victim knew (or should have known) about the hazard, they likely won’t have a valid case. Many businesses place warning signs near potential hazards to keep passersby safe — and to avoid facing a personal injury claim if someone is injured.
If you have fallen in your home and are a renter, your landlord may be held responsible for your injuries if they neglected to take care of a utility, fix a floor issue, or attend to another valid complaint while you occupied the space. Sometimes they may try to blame an occupant for the accident to save money, so it is key that you hire an attorney to prevent this person from taking advantage of you.
Common Bodily Injuries
- Head injury
- Hip fracture
- Spinal cord and/or back injury
- Shoulder injuries or dislocation
- Sprains or fractures
An important part of any personal injury claim is being able to prove that the accident directly caused an injury or worsened an existing one. Keeping a detailed list of all your injuries, along with an evaluation from your health provider, will provide valuable evidence of your injury.
