Slip and Fall
A slip and fall accident can land you in the hospital with injuries ranging from sprains, torn ligaments, and other soft tissue damage to broken bones, internal bleeding, head trauma, neck, back, hip, and spinal cord injuries. When these injuries have occurred due to the negligence of a property owner, you may be entitled to pursue monetary compensation through a personal injury claim.

Premises liability is the term that refers to the legal obligation property owners are under to provide a reasonably safe environment that will not put visitors at risk. Whether you visit a public or private property, the owner, manager, or person in charge is responsible for ensuring that the premises do not pose a safety risk to customers, patrons, visitors, residents, or others who enter the premises legally.
This applies to:
- Single-family homes
- Apartment buildings
- Entertainment venues
- Sports areas
- Movie theaters
- Office buildings
Such hazards as wet, slippery floors, torn carpets, broken lighting, crumbled floor tiles, and more can pose a danger to anyone visiting the premises. If the property owner has knowledge of the hazard and fails to remedy it or warn visitors which then leads to a serious injury, he or she may be held legally accountable for damages. These damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, pain, suffering, and more.
