What Caused This Accident?
In handling a slip-and-fall accident claim, it is important to determine the cause of the accident and to identify all liable parties. In many cases, these accidents are the direct result of negligence on the part of property owners or building managers. Common causes of slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents include:
- Cracks or potholes in the walkway
- Produce or liquids spilled on supermarket floors
- Faulty staircases
- Inadequate treading
- Poor lighting
- Defective staircases and railings
In all of the above examples, a simple repair or preventative maintenance would remove the hazard. Unfortunately, the parties responsible for those measures are often more mindful of saving money than making their premises safe for others. When hazards exist, but the responsible parties fail to remove them, innocent lives are put at risk. Our personal injury lawyers are here to help you pursue fair and just compensation for your losses while holding property owners and other careless parties accountable for their negligence.
