Slip and Fall Injuries
Surprising to some, slip and fall injuries are a leading cause of death across the United States. As a type of personal injury, slip and falls might also be considered under premises liability law, depending on the circumstances surrounding the injury or death. Though individuals may slip and fall due to their own clumsiness or impairment, there are instances where slip and fall accidents could have been prevented. For instance, suppose a person slips and falls due to loose staircase railings, wet floors, damaged sidewalks or inadequate lighting. Accidents may also have resulted from obstacles such as cords, wires or rugs. Given the many scenarios associated with slip and fall injuries, it is best to seek guidance from an experienced personal injury or premises liability lawyer that is equipped to represent your case.
For those that slip and fall, witnesses commonly assume that it's the individual's fault. Suppose an individual is looking down at their phone, and they then slip and fall due to a spill that was left on the floor. Is it the individual's fault, since he was looking at his phone? Is it the property owner's fault for not cleaning up the spill? An attorney provides critical insight into these and other questions following a slip and fall injury.
