Premises Liability Slip/Trip and Fall

photo-sliptripfallDid you know property owners have a duty to maintain a safe environment and keep the area free of dangerous conditions or potentially deadly hazards? When they fail in this duty, you can be seriously harmed in a catastrophic accident or even lose a loved one.

In fact, often seemingly harmless yet poorly designed or maintained office buildings and parking lots can pose just as much danger as construction sites, swimming pool areas or amusement parks. Common hazards often include broken handrails, slippery surfaces and raised sidewalks.

Don’t just walk away from a serious fall or other injury assuming that your injury is not actionable and that you were only being clumsy. You may have a case and could be owed compensation if you’ve suffered serious personal injuries at one of the following:

  • Store or restaurant
  • Commercial office building
  • Public swimming pool
  • Amusement park
  • Construction site or other workplace
