Looking at a Slip and Fall
Slip And Fall Injuries can happen on a variety of different grounds such as hotels, apartments, grocery stores and personal properties. These types of incidents are usually associated with the fact that there are physical defects to the property or weather conditions have obstructed the property’s physical environment. Physical defects to a property may include uneven pavements, potholes, torn carpeting, door defects, foreign objects, insufficient lighting, ceiling collapses, defective stairways and railings, leaky plumbing and insufficient security. Property owners are legally obligated in correcting these poor conditions. Typical premises where these defects occur include: apartment buildings, other homes, grocery stores, restaurants, department stores, bars, nightclubs, banquet venues, health clubs, gyms, spas and many other businesses. In other words, slip and fall incidents can inevitably happen anywhere.
Weather conditions play a huge factor to causing Slip And Fall Injuries. The unfavorable situations of rain, sleet, snow and ice can cause the physical surfaces of properties to become slippery and unfit to walk on. It is the responsibility of the property owner to maintain the area in spite of these elements. Snow should be cleared from the pavements and ice needs to be treated in a timely manner. These types of accidents are typically targeted in occurring on walkways of apartment buildings and businesses.
Slip and fall injuries are potentially very dangerous and very costly. Injuries from slip and falls can be minor, resulting in nothing more than some bruising or sprains. Or they can result in significant injuries like broken bones, head injuries, or even death. Medical expenses, missed time from work, and potential long term ramifications are costs for which you need and deserve compensation.
