Slip and Fall Liability

If you’ve been injured at a business, you might be wondering about slip and fall liability. Anyone who owns property meant for other people’s use has a responsibility to keep the property free from dangers. If they fail to do so, and people suffer serious injuries, the property owners may be liable for any medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages that result.

Slip and Fall Liability | Valid Claims

When a person is using someone else’s property in the intended fashion, and ends up injured, it may result in a lawsuit. If, for example, a slippery surface on the floor of a store causes a fall and a back injury or head injury, the injured person may be able to file a lawsuit. Elderly are particularly vulnerable to slip and fall injuries, and organizations catering to seniors must take extra precautions.

Some slip and fall injuries are not covered by premises liability laws. Work related injuries, for example, are covered by workers’ compensation. And the laws are complex when it comes to icy surfaces or uneven sidewalks. If you are unsure whether you have a case, it is best to just ask a knowledgeable attorney.
