Comprehensive Legal Help After An Injury

What causes serious indoor slip and fall accidents?

No matter your size and stature, succumbing to gravity through a slip and fall can have damaging consequences on your physical health. A crash on the hard floor surface may happen in an instant. Before you know it, you could suffer from a slipped disc, fractured hip, broken wrist or even a traumatic brain injury. The possibilities of bodily harm are limitless.

Not only do slip and fall victims manage the medical aspects of their injuries, there is often a legal aspect as well. Depending on the details of the accident, it may be the fault of the business or another person’s property. Your injuries are deserving of justice when they occur because of the negligence of others.

Indoor slip and fault causes

Slipping and falling on another business or property owner’s floor puts the spotlight of accountability off you and onto the negligence that caused the accident in the first place. For example, a restaurant owner is liable for a personal injury lawsuit when wet floors do not have a warning sign.

Other common causes for indoor slip and falls:

  • Broken stair steps
  • Grease on floor
  • Uneven steps on flat surface
  • Partially waxed floors
  • Faulty handrails
  • Items blocking a safe path to walk

Fault finding

The key to a personal injury case is proving that accident fault lies in the property owner’s inability to maintain a safe area to walk. Your injuries, medical bills, time off work due to your accident are worthy of just compensation within the law. Legal experts will be able to advocate for your rights and seek a fair and just settlement.

When you feel your accident is being handled unfairly, be sure to take pictures and get witness statements to help your case in court. There is help and support for workers and individuals who slip and fall due to the unkempt conditions of the business or personal property.
