Slip and Fall Accidents
A Slip and Fall Accident Attorney Ready to Fight for Victims
The term "slip and fall" describes a common premises liability claim in which someone slips, trips or falls and is injured on another individual or entity's property.
If these types of accidents occur due to negligence, the injured victim may have a right to compensation. Some common slip-and-fall accidents are due to property owners failing to maintain their premises. If you or someone you know was injured in a slip and fall accident, contact an experienced attorney promptly. You may be entitled to compensation for your losses, including medical bills, lost time from work and pain and suffering. At Zbinden & Curtis, we put our experience and resources to work for slip-and-fall victims.
A slip-and-fall accident can happen on any premise. The following are common examples of places where slip-and-fall accidents may occur:
- Hardware stores
- Department stores
- Parking lots
- Sidewalks on commercial property
- Office buildings
- Other people's homes
Conditions That May Lead to a Slip-and-Fall Accident
Property owners or businesses leasing or renting space may be negligent when they fail to address certain potential hazards on the premises. Slip-and-fall injuries may occur when the following conditions are present:
- Negligent care of a sidewalk or publicly owned area, such as a pothole in the ground
- Unsafe or narrow stairways
- Torn carpeting, uneven flooring, dim lighting or a wet floor
- Poor lighting
Injuries from slip-and-fall accidents can range from minor sprains and strains to broken bones, traumatic brain injury or even spinal cord damage. In some cases, a victim may die from injuries, leading to a potential wrongful death lawsuit.
