Premises Liability (Slip and Fall)

Despite their name, Slip and Fall cases can relate to any injury sustained from avoidable hazards in an area

It is a property manager’s responsibility to ensure that their premises are safe for people to access, or are inaccessible if they are unsafe. When someone gets hurt due to a preventable hazard, the property manager should be held responsible for their injuries.

Serious injuries can occur when someone slips, trips or falls. Common conditions that cause a slip and fall are:

  • Accumulation of Ice or Snow
  • Defective Staircases or Railings
  • Wet Floors
  • Oily Floors
  • Hidden Extension Cords
  • Unsecured rugs or Carpets
  • Loose or Broken Floors, Sidewalks, Steps, or Stairs

 

Property managers often have arguments ready for when people get hurt on their property and are ready to place the blame on the injured. We are ready to fight these shaming tactics and know how to keep the focus on their fault.

If you have sustained injuries from a fall, the property owner, tenant, and maintenance company could all potentially be responsible for your injuries through a premises liability claim.

Our experienced premises liability attorneys work hard to provide compassionate and effective legal representation for those injured by unsafe property conditions. Call us today and we’ll put our experience to work for you.
