When walking on someone else’s property, you are legally entitled to a level of protection.

If you have fallen victim to a slip and fall injury resulting from deficient premise upkeep, you have the right to receive the compensation from the responsible party.

Looking at a Slip and Fall
Slip and Fall Injuries can occur on a variety of different grounds, including hotels, personal properties, apartment buildings, grocery stores, restaurants, department stores, bars, nightclubs, banquet venues, health clubs, gyms, spas, and many other businesses. These types of incidents are typically caused by physical defects to the property, or by 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 to correct these poor conditions, and failure to do so constitutes negligence on their part.
Weather conditions are a common cause of Slip and Fall Injuries. 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 typically occur on walkways of apartment buildings and businesses.
Slip and fall injuries are potentially very dangerous and very costly. While sometimes the injuries from slip and falls are minor, resulting in nothing more than some bruising or sprains, they can also 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.
