Handling Premises Liability Claims in Westlake, Independance & Areas Around Crocker Park

Falls are a leading cause of injury and death, particularly among older people. A slip and fall accident caused by a dangerous condition on someone else’s property can give rise to a premises liability claim. Slip and fall accidents can happen in public places, commercial establishments, or private residences when owners or occupiers fail to maintain the property in a reasonably safe condition.

How Do Slip and Fall Accidents Happen?

A visitor can slip or trip and fall because of a hazardous condition existing on a property. Common causes of slip and fall accidents include:

  • Slippery floors
  • Ice, snow, or water in walkways
  • Spills that are not cleaned up promptly
  • Loose or torn carpet
  • Unanchored rugs or mats
  • Clutter or debris in stairways or walkways
  • Poor lighting
  • Uneven floor surfaces
  • Loose or missing tiles
  • Sudden changes in floor elevation

Injuries from Slip and Fall Accidents 

Slips and falls can cause serious or even fatal injuries. Some of the most common injuries include:

  • Head trauma and brain injury
  • Neck, back, and spine injuries
  • Fractured bones, including arms, wrists, legs, ankles, hips, and ribs
  • Internal organ damage and internal bleeding
  • Coma and paralysis

How Do You Win a Slip and Fall Accident Lawsuit?

To recover compensation for a slip and fall accident, you must prove that the property owner or occupier knew (or should have known) of the dangerous condition but failed to correct it and the condition was not open and obvious to the average person. Even if it was open and obvious, you may still be able to establish liability if the owner created the dangerous condition or created circumstances that distracted you at the time of the fall.
