Conditions That Lead To Injury

Slip-and-fall accidents can happen almost anywhere. For that reason, the potential to file an occupier's liability claim is quite broad. Hazardous conditions that can lead to such mishaps are numerous, but among the most common are:

  • Inadequate lighting
  • Slippery floors from spills
  • Unstable product displays
  • Unsafe handrails
  • Icy or slippery sidewalks
  • Defects in floors
  • Uneven walking surfaces

In all cases, it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your options after a slip-and-fall. Cellphone photos, witness statements and other pieces of evidence are vital in demonstrating the condition of the hazard when you fell. There are strict timelines for taking legal action, so contact us for a consultation.
