Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and Fall in Business Establishments

When you suffer an injury as a result of a slip and fall either in a business establishment or on the property of another, you may be entitled to recover damages for the injury you suffered.  

More often than not, these types of injuries occur in business establishments where food is present, but can also occur in any environment where a business owner has a responsibility to maintain the flooring so as not to cause a slip and fall risk to its patrons.  

The most important aspect of these types of matters for an injured party to be aware of is that the owner of the business must either have notice of the condition that caused you to fall, or, they must have created the dangerous condition which caused you to fall (example: they knowingly put a slippery substance on flooring when they could reasonably expect patrons to be using that area of the establishment – and posted no warning of doing so).

When these types of accidents occur and you suffer a serious injury, you will need an attorney to represent you to fully investigate the nature of the fall, the nature of your injuries and the obligations and/or omissions of the property owner in their responsibility to maintain a safe premises.
