Slip and Fall Law

Negligence law covers all slip and fall injuries and accidents.  Property owners have a duty of care to see that their property is safe.

This includes ensuring that the building has no structural defects, inside or outside, that could cause a slip and fall injury to occur.  In some states, the property owner may also have a duty to reduce the problem areas caused by weather—like standing water and icy spots.

Examples of this are:

  • Icy patches
  • Snow filled areas
  • Loose floor mats
  • Loose rugs
  • Loose tiles
  • Water on the floor
  • Badly lit stairs or steps
  • Cracks or holes in sidewalks
  • Cracks or holes in parking lots

Sometimes the person injured does not know for sure what caused their slip and fall injury.  That is why it is important to ensure that a full investigation is conducted to ensure that the source of the problem is discovered.

There are a variety of different types of slip and fall injuries that a person can sustain in an accident.  Some of the most common slip and fall injury types include things like:

  • Head injuries/Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). Head injuries can range from minor traumatic brain injuries to severe traumatic brain injuries that cause life-long cognitive issues and debilitation.  Falls are the most common causes of TBIs that occur outside of military service and tend to occur most often to children and the elderly.
  • Injuries to the spinal cord and back are other common injuries that result from slip and fall incidents. Back and spinal cord injuries can be extremely painful, and can lead to extensive complications such as paralysis, as well as other sensory and mobility issues.
  • Sprains, fractures, and dislocations. The impact with the ground or stationary objects after a fall can also result in a variety of different significant physical injuries.

****If you are hurt in one of these accidents it is important to preserve evidence as much as possible to ensure that you can prove your case in court. Having proof at your side when you file slip and fall cases gives you the best chance of a favorable outcome.

****Try to get names of witnesses who might have seen the accident, note all relevant conditions (like poor lighting), and take pictures of the area if possible.  Be sure to document the incident by reporting it to building owners or property managers. For slip and fall negligence cases, in particular, this evidence can make or break your case.
