Negligence in Slip and Fall Accidents
Many people are severely injured after tripping over an obstacle, navigating a slippery surface in a store, or falling in a snowy parking lot. Many common causes of slip and fall accidents are preventable and happen due to someone else’s negligence, including wet floors with no accompanying signage, a frayed carpet, exposed electric cables, merchandise on an aisle floor, etc.
It is the responsibility of property owners and managers to maintain their property and make it safe for visitors. They must also warn visitors of any dangers they are aware of such as spilled liquids, overly waxed and slippery floors, or areas that are under repair.
In many cases, it is the negligence of the property owner that is to blame for your accident. It is vital that you see a doctor directly after the fall, when possible. If you are treated by EMTs, maintain any papers you are given. If the police were called, keep the police report with your other documentation.
Your next step should be consultation with a skilled and compassionate personal injury attorney who is experienced in handling slip and fall accidents and can guide you in the right direction. The more time you give your attorney to collect evidence and prepare your claim, the stronger your case may be.
