What Caused You to Fall?
Property owners and managers are responsible for maintaining safe environments
for visitors. If they fail to do so, they may be considered liable-or
legally responsible-for an accident.
We may be able to help if your accident was the result of:
- Objects in walkways – Any item placed in a walking path is a potential trip hazard. Even small objects can pose serious dangers to people if placed in a designated walkway or in a location that is normally free from trip hazards.
- Unmarked elevation changes or broken steps and platforms – Sudden changes in elevation can cause people to lose their footing and may lead to a fall, while broken steps and platforms pose a risk for tripping and suffering severe injuries.
- Wet, polished, or waxed floors – When tile, vinyl, or laminate floors are wet because of leaks, spills, or the application of floor polish or wax, they can become slick and more likely to cause slip and fall accidents. Property owners should always post signs warning people of slick and dangerous floors.
- Poor lighting – Poorly lit walkways can be trip hazards, as normally avoidable obstacles can become dangerous due to low levels of visibility.
