Do you know what a slip & fall is? It is the most common cause of injury in America. There are many different types of accidents that can be classified as a slip and fall, including trips on wet floors, ladder falls, spills from food or drinks, falls due to ice or snow, etc.
More importantly, slip & fall injuries can be catastrophic and life changing. And the aftermath of injuries such as fractures, spinal cord injuries and even traumatic brain injuries from a severe slip & fall can leave you and your family to deal with the consequences for months or even years.
If you have been injured in one of these accidents, you may wonder what to do next, especially if you have been seriously hurt.
How the Bell & Washington Law Firm Can Help
Property owners and businesses have a duty to keep individuals and the community safe from harm when they are on their grounds. When you go to a restaurant, office building, shopping complex, government building, apartment complex or even take a stroll in a park, your experience shouldn’t be a dangerous one. If a hazardous condition exists which the property owner fails to correct in a timely fashion, he or she may be held accountable for injuries that result from the neglected hazard. Such hazardous conditions may include wet, slippery floors, poor or inadequate lighting in hallways, pathways, or stairwells, loose or broken stairs, broken floor tiles, ripped carpeting, and more.
If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident on another’s premises due to the negligent actions or inactions of the property owner, manager, or occupant, you may be entitled to recover compensation for damages by filing a personal injury claim.
