Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are often caused by:

  • Spilled materials
  • Poor lighting
  • Faulty construction
  • Other hazardous conditions

They often occur in parking lots, supermarkets, government offices, or private homes. In order to prove negligence for an accident, a slip and fall lawyer will prove whether a property owner or operator was responsible for the conditions. This can include the property owner being responsible for unsafe conditions, and the property owner being aware of the hazard but not trying to correct it.

Premises Liability

Once negligence has been established, it’s also necessary to prove who has premises liability for the property on which the accident occurred. Premises liability basically means establishing who has ownership, possession and/or control of the property in question. Establishing premises liability can often involve complex investigation and requires a slip and fall lawyer with the resources of an experienced injury law firm.
