Kendall Slip and Fall Attorneys
The law places a duty on property owners to ensure their property is free of any foreseeable dangerous conditions that could result in injury to individuals legally allowed to be on the owner’s property. Guests, customers, and licensees who come on the premises have a reasonable expectation that the premises do not contain any foreseeable dangerous situations. Premises liability is created when a person is injured on the property as the result of a condition that the owner could have foreseen. This liability most often arises when a customer, guest, or other invitee slips or trips and falls while moving about the property.
There are many conditions that can be deemed foreseeable and dangerous, but some of the most common are the presence of water or other liquid substances on the floor, narrow stairwells or hallways, uneven stairs or sidewalks, wobbly railings, and poorly lit stairwells or hallways. Property owners have a duty under law to ensure that their property is well-maintained, which means that owners must perform repairs when necessary and employ preventative maintenance to protect anyone who is legally allowed to be on their property. Preventative measures that should be used by owners and landlords include placing warning signs around spills; blocking off uneven sidewalks or stairs; and filling in potholes.
Slip and fall accidents often result in painful, serious injuries, including severe back pain, broken bones, torn ligaments, and spinal cord injuries. These injuries are unpredictable, often hard to fully recover from, and can seriously affect a victim’s quality of life. Many victims of slip or trip and fall accidents are unable to work for a period of time, which can leave them without the income they have come to depend upon. As medical expenses stack up, victims of slip and fall accidents may experience stress and not know how they will ever pay for their recovery; however, if someone sustains injuries in a slip and fall caused by a premises owner’s negligence, that person should not have to pay for his or her own medical expenses.
