Property owners have a duty to keep their building/home and the surrounding grounds reasonably safe for visitors. Therefore, when someone falls as a result of a dangerous property condition, the property owner may be held liable for the resulting slip-and-fall injuries. For an evaluation of your slip-and-fall case, contact the attorneys at the Warner Law Offices.
We are experienced handling slip-and-fall claims involving various types of injuries, for example: neck and back injuries (such as a ruptured disk), head injuries (such as a concussion), joint injuries (such as broken knees, hips, ankles and other joints) and other broken bones (such as a broken arm or leg).
Examples of dangerous property conditions, which may lead to a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident, include:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Debris on the floor (such as electrical cords, food or garbage)
- Torn carpet
- Uneven steps
- Poorly lit hallways or stairs
- Other dangerous conditions
