- Water or other liquids left un-cleaned on tile floors
- Uneven walkways
- Unstable walkways
- Snow not cleared from walkways
- Leaks from ceilings
- Torn or uneven carpeting
- Broken or otherwise damaged stairs
- Insufficient lighting
- Falling objects
- Falling merchandise displays

Where Did Your Fall Occur?
These accidents occur at virtually all types of properties. Here are just a few of the many examples:
- Shopping malls
- Retail stores
- Grocery stores
Slip and fall claims hinge on liability. Was your slip simply an unfortunate accident or is someone responsible for creating the conditions that led to it?
Our attorneys know how to determine if a property owner, leaser or other party ought to be held accountable for negligence leading to your injury.
Liability in a Slip And Fall Claim
Liability in these claims depends on the type of property and your status at the property (customer, guest, etc). It also depends on what caused you to fall, and if the property owner/leaser owed you a duty of care. Did the owner/leaser fail in their duty to keep the premises reasonably safe? Examples of potentially responsible parties in a slip and fall case include:
- Store managers
- Store owners
- Owners of various types of buildings
- Government agencies
The experienced attorneys at our law firm can determine if someone should be held responsible for your injuries.
