What a Slip and Fall Case Looks Like
Negligence and poor maintenance of a property result in hazardous conditions. It is the responsibility of the property owner to remedy these dangerous areas after they are discovered and to proactively prevent the formation of new hazards. Here are some examples of potentially dangerous conditions:
- Slippery liquid spills
- Broken staircases/walkways
- Little to no access to safety rails
- Potholes, ledges, unkept hallways
A spill in a grocery store can be fixed promptly, but a broken staircase may require a longer repair. When the hazardous situation can’t be addressed immediately, the property owner is legally required to place some sort of warning signage. This can take the form of a wet floor sign or caution tape, but must explicitly state the risk of traversing the area.
Falls at Home
If you live in a rental property, you likely rely on your landlord or property manager to handle the overall maintenance and upkeep of your living area. When a landlord acts negligently, and they fail to perform the maintenance that is outlined in your lease, it puts those within the premises at risk for injury. If an injury does occur, they could be held liable.
Value of a Case
Slip and Fall cases can vary depending on the circumstances of the accident. Our team can assess the situation, evaluate your injuries, and establish the compensation you’re entitled to. We consider:
- Severity of the injury

- Emotional distress
- Lost wages
- Other expenses surrounding your injury
