A slip and fall accident occurs when a property owner fails to provide a reasonably safe premises and their failure to do so caused you injuries. Just because you slipped and fell on someone else’s property does not mean that the property owner is at fault. The existence of an unsafe condition alone does not mean that the property owner is at fault. You must show that the property owner knew or should reasonably have known that the property was in an unsafe condition, that the property owner failed to take proper steps to make the property safe, and that you slipped, fell and were hurt as a result.
There are many types of slip and fall accidents that occur and many are related to ice and snow conditions in New England. Other injuries occur from wet floors, greasy floors, oily floors, icy floors, or floors that are slick because of a failure to install proper safety mats. The property owner’s lack of maintenance, failure to create or follow safety procedures, or failure to pay careful attention often cause these falls.
If you have suffered an injury from a slip and fall at a commercial business or private residence, recoverable damages could include medical costs, lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, physical impairment, disfigurement, permanent injury, physical pain, and other suffering. Because the liability related to slip and fall accidents can be complex, retaining legal counsel as soon as possible is critical.
