Slip and Fall

Property owners have a legal responsibility to maintain their property in a safe and reasonable manner. When property owners fail to maintain and supervise their property in a safe and reasonable manner, people can suffer serious and even fatal injuries.

A certain number of slip and fall accidents are unavoidable. Even the most diligent property owner cannot guard against all possible risks at all times. But a property owner must demonstrate reasonable care for the protection of people who visit their property.

    The owner of property may be required to pay compensation to a personal injury victim if the property owner has negligently maintained or supervised his or her property. Although slip and fall accidents are one of the most common causes of premises liability, there are a number of other causes of potential liability including:

  • Unsafe fire hazards
  • Electrical hazards
  • Other slippery conditions: water/liquids, etc.
  • Poor lighting which aided a criminal in assault or theft
  • Other poor security measures which resulted in assault
  • Swimming pool dangers: lack of a fence or dangerous conditions
  • Unreasonable dangers to children

If you have suffered a slip and fall injury as a result of a property owner’s negligence, you may have a right to receive financial compensation for your injuries. The best way to protect your rights is to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer. Contact Irons so we may discuss the best course of action.
