Slip and Fall
Premises Liability, Slip & Fall and Negligent Security
Slip or trip-and-fall cases are a very common type of premises liability claim. Premises liability claims refer to accidents that happen when someone is hurt or injured due to an unsafe condition on another person’s property. Owners and tenants (of single family homes, condominiums, commercial buildings, residential rental buildings, parking lots, hotels, amusement parks, restaurants, schools, businesses, etc.) have a duty to provide a reasonably safe environment and to warn of any known dangers to prevent injury to those that visit the property.
Our law firm handles premises liability claims involving slip-and-falls, negligent security and trip-and-falls. We recommend that you consult with a lawyer experienced in handling premises liability cases before speaking to any insurance company adjuster or representative. Some of the common causes of premises liability lawsuits include:
- Wet floors, slippery surfaces, uneven floors, ripped carpeting, debris, etc.
- Ramps or stairs without handrails, guardrails or which are too steep
- Unsafe equipment
- Unsafe furnishings, stairways, ceilings, roofs
