Spilled liquids, snow, ice and uneven pavement may seem like minor inconveniences, but when they (or something else) cause an injury, the results can be devastating. In fact, a seemingly simple “slip and fall” accident can actually turn into a difficult and possibly debilitating situation resulting in pain, emotional distress, compounding medical bills, lost wages and endless frustration dealing with insurance companies.
If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident, a personal injury attorney can help you understand your rights and, more importantly, navigate the difficult and confusing waters of filing a personal injury lawsuit in order to get you the compensation you deserve.
Property owners, managers, custodians and business owners hold the responsibility of keeping their property in a reasonably safe condition. This means that these parties must ensure that their property is free of potentially harmful conditions to visitors of the property, including spills, uneven walking surfaces, debris and clutter, and other conditions that may cause a slip, trip or fall accident.
