Slip and fall accidents are a specific type of premises liability claims. The law regards safe walkways as one of the hallmarks of a safe property—if sidewalks, aisles, or pathways aren’t clear of obstacles or hazards, then property owners are liable for the damage that results. Preventing slip and fall accidents is an important part of any business and they should be inspecting their property for dangerous conditions such as unmarked holes, ice in their parking lots or on the walkways, spills and slippery floors.
If you fell because:
- A walkway was dangerously slippery;
- Hazards weren’t clearly marked;
- You fell due to lack of property maintenance;
- There was no railing or safety equipment to prevent a fall
…then you could have a valid slip and fall claim.
Suing a business for the damages caused by slip and fall accidents can not only provide for a person’s medical care, future treatment, and physical therapy—it can force the business to take their safety protocols more seriously and prevent slip and falls from happening again. Lawsuits make our communities safer by compelling businesses to do the right thing. Far from being frivolous, filing a lawsuit for your slip and fall is a way to provide for your needs while creating a safer city.

Q:How is a personal injury claim different from a personal injury lawsuit?
A:If you wish to hold the person responsible for your injuries liable, it is important to know the differences between a claim and a lawsuit. A personal injury claim is the first step, when your attorney files against the parties responsible or liable for the injury. A personal injury lawsuit comes after the claim, taking place in a court of law, if the original claim did not yield the compensation desired by the plaintiffs.
Q:What is negligence?
A:Negligence is one of the key aspects of any personal injury case. Negligence occurs when a person or party does not act with the proper amount of care and caution that a reasonable person would use to prevent harm or injury to another individual, or when the person or party does something harmful that a careful and reasonable person would not have done in a similar situation.
Q:How important is negligence to my case?
A:Negligence is perhaps the most integral factor in an injury claim or lawsuit, and in order to fight for justice against the liable party (also called the defendant), you must first be able to prove their negligence and that it is the direct cause of your injuries.
