They can happen anywhere. Slip and falls can occur in just about any public building or on any type of property. If the property owner’s negligence causes your fall, you’re entitled to make a financial recovery for damages.
Where Slip and Falls Happen
You can slip and fall in many locations, but most of these accidents occur in or on:
- Apartment Buildings
- Parking Lots, Parking Garages, and Driveways
- Grocery stores
- Bars and Clubs
- Retail stores
- Parks and Amusement Parks
- Other people’s homes
Stairway debris, escalator defects, wet floors, broken pavement, torn carpeting, broken handrails, and poor lighting conditions may cause slip and fall accidents. If your slip and fall injury occurred due to any building hazard, the property owner or manager may be found negligent.
Do You Have a Slip and Fall Case?
You could have a personal injury lawsuit after a fall if you suffered a severe injury such as a brain injury, spinal cord injury, broken bone, or internal injury, and if a property owner or manager:
- Knew of the dangerous condition and didn’t fix it or warn you about it
- Should have known about the dangerous condition and taken steps to fix it or warn you about it
