Slip and fall accidents are the most common types of accidents that are involved in cases of premises liability. When property owners or property lessors fail to properly maintain their premises, this can cause serious hazards to their visitors. Slip and fall accidents can occur just about anywhere, such as at a mall, bank, restaurant, theater, school, government building, etc. While a slip and fall might sound like a minor ordeal, these types of accidents can potentially result in very serious injuries, depending on how and where the person falls. Injuries can range from sprains and broken bones to catastrophic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. After you have been seriously injured in a slip and fall accident, make sure to enlist the help of a skilled legal professional. At The Law Offices of Jason S. Goodman, P.A., we have a Coral Springs personal injury attorney who has 25 years of experience!
How do slip and fall accidents occur?
There is a wide range of unsafe conditions that can lead to slip and fall accidents. Here are just a few of those conditions:
- Slippery floor
- Cracks in the floor
- Uneven tile, carpet or other floorings
- Obstructed pathway
- Broken stairs
- Potholes in the sidewalk or parking lot
- Lack of warning signs
Businesses and other property owners and lessors are only considered liable for accidents when it is shown that they did not execute out an ordinary level of care in keeping their grounds safe. For example, this might be the case if the property owner or occupier failed to carry out routine checks of its premises, or if it failed to carry out regular maintenance of the property (such as making necessary repairs). It must be shown that the property owner knew about the hazard and did nothing to fix it, or that that the property owner reasonably should have known about the problem. If the business or property owner is not able to address a hazard immediately, it must generally post signs to alert visitors of the dangerous condition.
