Trips or Slips and falls can result in serious, permanent injuries. Whether you slipped on melted snow on the sidewalk or spilled water on the supermarket floor, you may be entitled to file a claim and obtain compensation for your injuries.
By law, a property owner or store has the responsibility to maintain a safe premises and to place appropriate signs warning others of potential hazards. If property visitors are injured because of slippery surfaces, defective sidewalks or other similar hazards, then the property owner or manager is likely to be held legally liable for any injuries sustained.
Although there are numerous types of premises liability accidents, slip and fall accidents are among the most usual. Common causes of slip and fall accidents are cracked or uneven sidewalks, obstructions on floors or walkways, poorly or unmarked stairs, slippery flooring, unbalanced tiling, icy surfaces, potholes, and other similar road hazards.
