Slip and Fall
Have you been injured in a Slip and Fall accident?
Did you know that 15% of all accidental deaths happen due to a slip and fall accident?
If you have ever slipped and fallen at a business or on a property, you may be eligible for compensation. The property owner(s) may have some level of responsibility for your personal injuries that were caused by the slip and fall accident on the property. A property owner is required to maintain a safe environment, and is obligated to protect persons lawfully on the property from injuries caused by dangerous conditions that the owner or occupier was aware of or should have known existed. In addition, if the property is a rental property (landlord/tenant property) where the person who is injured rents or has a business, the landlord is obligated to maintain the property and may be responsible for the tenant’s injuries. For example, if a second floor apartment has a leaking faucet that leaks to the first floor, the landlord should know that there is a risk of the water causing a dangerous issue in the first floor residence which may result in an accident or injury to that tenant.
