Premises and Slip and Fall Accidents

You may not think your everyday activities are dangerous, but negligent property owners can turn your morning walk into a legal nightmare.

Walking your dog, crossing a lobby, or using stairs can lead to a premises or slip and fall accident. The term “slip and fall” refers to a personal injury case in which someone slips, falls or is otherwise injured on another’s property. Common slip and fall cases involve slippery or icy sidewalks, wet flooring, unsafe carpeting, or poor lighting. Premises accidents can occur on private or public property, at malls or in private homes.

Slip and fall cases happen more frequently than we think. Slip and fall accidents account for more than 15 percent of total accidental fatalities and 20 percent of all workers’ compensation claims. Slips and falls are the third highest cause of workplace injuries and the single highest cause of emergency room visits.

If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident, you could face a contentious legal battle. Most property owners deny responsibility and dig in for a fight.
