Common Locations for Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can occur just about anywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Indoor slip and fall accidents are common in grocery stores, restaurants, and other places of business where foods and liquids can spill onto the floor. When spills are not cleaned up properly and promptly – and a customer or business patron falls – serious and debilitating injuries can result.

Outside, slip and fall accidents are common on cracked pavement or concrete, staircases, and wet surfaces. Sidewalks, parking lots, and construction work zones all might have risks for slip and falls. These accidents might also happen in common spaces of apartment or condo complexes, such as on the stairs, in parking garages, or lobbies. 

If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident that occurred in one of these locations, you should promptly speak with a knowledgeable Matthews slip and fall lawyer about your legal options.

Pursuing Legal Action Against the Property Owner 

Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises both inside and out for the benefit of their business customers and social guests. To be successful in a slip and fall personal injury claim, the accident victim must be able to demonstrate that the property owner owed a duty of care and that he or she violated that duty, resulting in the slip and fall accident. For example, the property owner might have failed to inspect the premises for dangerous conditions. Moreover, if the property owner was aware of the dangerous condition, he or she might have failed to take proper and prompt remedial action to either warn about the condition or correct it.
