Accidents such as slips and falls can happen while you are on someone else’s property. Even the most simple slip and fall accident can have devastating consequences, causing severe injuries that can permanently change a person’s life.
Businesses and property owners owe visitors and invitees a duty to maintain their property in a safe condition and are required to provide notice that a dangerous condition exists on their premises.
If you are injured at another person’s property or premises, you must not only notify the property or business owner of your injury but must also speak to an attorney immediately to ensure that your rights are protected under the situation.
Common Causes of Premises Liability
Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents can happen in any of the following situations:
- Floors with slippery fluids such as water, oil and grease
- Uneven floors, curbs, and steps
- Cracked sidewalks and pavements as well as potholes
- Poorly lighted areas
- Falling debris and other items
- Broken equipment
- Broken rails and stairs
Other types of dangerous conditions can also lead to injuries for which business owners or property owners may be held responsible. Broken glass, unattended dogs, and inadequate security can also cause injuries that property owners have a duty to prevent. It’s important to seek the advice of an experienced attorney to determine whether you are entitled to premises liability compensation in your situation.
If you have been seriously injured in the premises of another party, your immediate concern is to recover from your injuries and resume work and your usual activities as soon as possible. This means getting appropriate medical care and treatment, paying all your medical bills, and recovering wages or salaries that you may have lost as a result of your accident.

Achieving the Results You Deserve
While you may be able to deal directly with the insurance company of the property owner who is responsible for your injuries, you may not be able to receive the true value of compensation that you deserve. Insurance companies tend to pay out the least amount in any claim for compensation. Without legal advice, you may feel compelled to accept any offer, even if the amount is inadequate for your needs.
