Slip and Fall

Individuals, companies, and local governments have a duty of care to ensure that their property is maintained in a safe condition and does not cause harm to people who access their premises. For example, homeowners, landlords, storeowners, etc. can be faulted for failing to fence or seal off a swimming pool, have a safe diving board and accurate water depth markings, keep the floor free of water, fix potholes or dangerous breaks in the sidewalk or driveway, maintain adequate lighting, or provide obvious warning signs or cones. In a trip and fall incident, someone could get injured when their foot is caught, or comes up against a physical barrier, for example, an uneven sidewalk, loose carpeting or rickety stairs.

If you or a loved one slips and falls on someone else’s property, the owner or occupier of that property is responsible for the injuries to which they carelessly contributed. Because of someone else's negligence, you could lose time off work and incur medical bills as well as endure pain and suffering. Injured persons and their families are entitled to seek compensation from the individuals or organizations responsible for an accident that led to injury or death. This is true no matter if the slip and fall injuries occurred at the mall, the grocery store, a neighbor's house, the post office, at work, or at school.
