Where and Why Do Slip and Fall Accidents Happen?


Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere. Indoor slip and falls typically occur in restaurants and grocery stores where food and liquids can fall to the ground and cause someone to slip. They can also occur on indoor staircases that are not properly maintained.


Outdoor slip and fall accidents can occur on poorly maintained sidewalks, as well as in parking lots and in parking garages where there are deep cracks or potholes.


One of the main reasons why slip and fall accidents happen in these locations is because the property owner or manager fails to ensure that the property is in a reasonably safe condition at all times. In order to prove that the property owner was negligent, you must typically be able to show that the owner had knowledge of the property defect and that he or she failed to take reasonably prompt measures to warn about or remedy it.

Potential Damages in a Slip and Fall Injury Case


Injuries in a slip and fall accident can be severe and often include fractures, head and brain injuries, and soft tissue injuries. If you suffer any of these injuries in your slip and fall accident, and you are able to prove that the property owner, manager, landlord, or someone else was negligent, then you might be eligible to recover various damages in your case. Potential damages include compensation for medical bills, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.
