Slip and fall accidents can be serious and can occur almost anywhere. The most common slip and fall accidents occur at supermarkets, shopping malls, in parking lots and on sidewalks. These slips, trips or falls may occur from a wet floor, icy conditions, lack of appropriate handrail, defective stairs, uneven sidewalks, broken pavement or construction-related debris.
Other claims come from poor engineering or architectural designs or construction. Responsibility rests with the property owner, or with the person or company in charge of designing, building or keeping the property safe, such as a landscaper, snow removal company, property manager or engineer.
About Slip And Fall Lawsuits, Settlements, And Awards
Not every fall gives rise to legal liability. Sometimes the owner or contractor is responsible and sometimes they are not. Responsibility to the injured person often depends on whether the one in control of the property acted reasonably under the circumstances.
Generally, the injured party must show that the person or entity in charge of property knew or should have known that the premises were in an unsafe condition, and reasonable steps were not taken to correct that condition.
If the one in charge created or caused the dangerous condition, he will likely be responsible. Additionally, there may be responsibility even if the one in charge did not cause the condition himself, but knew of the condition and failed to remedy or fix that condition.
Once fault is proven, the injured party must demonstrate the harm they suffered, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
