If you were injured after slipping or tripping on another person’s property, you may have a slip and fall case. Slip and fall injury cases fall under the category of premises liability because the owner or manager of the premises where the injury occurred is usually held responsible. When you enter onto another person’s property, be it a public park, government building, or store, you have a reasonable expectation to be safe. In situations where a property is not properly maintained, it can create a dangerous environment, which may lead to injuries. If you or a loved one was harmed on hazardous premises, you may be eligible for compensation.

A slip and fall incident can be caused by any number of factors that may make an environment dangerous. Slip and fall accidents are commonly caused by the following hazards:
When you enter onto another person or company’s property, they have a duty to provide a safe environment and to warn visitors of any potential hazards. Because of this expected duty, and injury resulting from owner negligence is likely the property owner’s responsibility. However, sometimes a property manager may be held liable if he or she failed to exhibit proper care. Slip and fall accidents can occur on private property, government property, at stores or businesses, or on sidewalks and streets. The property owner or manager is responsible for adhering to any and all applicable safety codes, as well as warning of potential hazards. For example, if an employee recently mopped a store, he or she should post a sign to warn customers of a potential slipping hazard.
The injuries resulting from slip and fall cases can be very serious, sometimes resulting in concussions, brain damage, spinal damage, or broken bones. If you or a loved one slipped and fell on someone else’s property due to no fault of your own, you may be eligible to seek compensation for the resulting damage. Compensation may include payment for medical expenses, as well as loss of wages and pain and suffering.
