How Do Slip and Fall Accidents Happen?

Slip and fall accidents are a common occurrence and while the nature of injury can vary from something minor to more serious ones, it is important that you consult a premises liability attorney to determine whether you have a legitimate case. Either way, it is important to note that a plaintiff must have suffered an injury in order to be able to file a claim.

 

Slip and fall accidents typically occur on someone else’s property. The property may be owned or maintained by someone else and the accident is usually the result of their negligence. Some examples of such accidents include –

 

-Torn carpeting
-Changes in flooring
-Poor lighting
-Narrow stairs
-Wet floors
-Broken or cracked public sidewalks
-Outdoor accidents due to rain, ice, snow or hidden hazards such as potholes in the ground.

How Slip and Fall Accident cases work

There is no precise manner in which it can be determined whether someone else is responsible for your injuries when you slip or trip. Assigning liability in each case depends on whether the property owner acted in a manner that ensured slipping or tripping was not likely to happen, and whether it was carelessness on your part for not seeing or avoiding the condition that caused you injury.
In most cases involving slip and fall accidents, the person injured on someone else’s property must prove that the cause of the accident was a ‘dangerous condition’, and that the owner of the property was aware of that condition. A dangerous condition must present an unreasonable risk to a people on the property and also a condition the injured person should not have anticipated under the given circumstances. This latter requirement implies that people must be aware of, and avoid, obvious dangers.

 

To establish that the property owner was aware of the presence of the dangerous condition, it must be shown that –

 

– The owner/possessor created the condition;
– The owner/possessor knew about the condition and negligently failed to correct it; or
– The condition existed for a sufficient period of time for the owner/possessor to have discovered and corrected it prior to the slip and fall accident in question.

Types of Injuries Due to Slip and Fall Accidents

There are several different types of injuries that can occur as a result of slip and fall accidents, which can range from minor ones to major and more serious injuries. These typically include injuries to the head and/or back and can be extremely severe in the case of gross negligence. At such times, hiring the best slip and fall attorney you can find is absolutely essential if you plan on filing a lawsuit in order to secure fair compensation for the damage and injury caused to you.
