Dangerous Conditions Can Result In Serious Injuries

Slip-and-fall accidents are legally classified as "premises liability" cases. The law requires a safe environment for people on the premises. These laws pertain to businesses as well as homeowners. Some common premises liability claims involving unsafe property conditions include:

  • Falls caused by spilled liquids or foreign substances on the floor of a business establishment
  • Poor lighting, holes in the ground or broken pavement that causes someone to trip
  • Construction site accidents, such as workers falling from ladders, scaffolding and cranes

Actions To Take Following A Slip-And-Fall Accident

You should follow certain actions following an accident to help strengthen your claim, including gathering the names of the property owners and managers, getting the names of any witnesses, photographing the scene of the accident and the resulting injuries, and seeking medical attention. It is also important to save the footwear and clothing you were wearing at the time of the accident and, above all, do not make any statements to insurance providers or business owners without first speaking with a lawyer.
