Slip and fall accidents, or trip and fall accidents occur more often than most people realize. Valid personal injury claims arise when a person slips and falls as a result of a hazardous condition on someone else’s property.
These falls can happen inside or outside buildings on commercial, residential, or public property. Property or building owners have a level of responsibility to make sure an environment is safe, just as visitors have the responsibility to watch where they are going. Unfortunately, a fall that seems simple at the time, can lead to serious, and life changing injuries – like RSD.
Do I need an Attorney?
Not all slip/trip and fall injuries are actionable, as it is necessary to prove that the property owner is aware of the hazard, whether structural defect or weather related, and nothing was done – thus warranting a negligence claim.
