When Slip & Fall Injuries Are Caused by Negligence
Fall injuries come under the umbrella of premises liability law. Premises liability laws can hold a property owner, management company, or maintenance company responsible for injuries that occur on their property if negligence can be shown.
Examples of negligence in slip & fall cases include:
- Water, ice or snow which was not naturally accumulated
- Cracked or uneven floors
- Poor lighting
- Lack of handrail where required
- Hidden hazards such as gaps or holes
- Ripped or torn carpeting
- Highly polished floors
If any of the above conditions were factors in your fall, you may have a case to file a claim for medical costs, lost wages, and ongoing treatment. Most properties are covered by insurance, so you can claim damages from an insurance company if a property owner is unable to provide for your medical costs or lost earning potential.
