While premises liability can also refer to negligent security and other issues, the most common type of premises liability incident is a slip-and-fall accident. These can be caused by a number of factors, including:
- Slippery floors
- Cracked sidewalks and flooring
- Hazardous steps
- Missing handrails
- Falling ceilings
- Icy and/or snowy sidewalks
- Trip hazards
Falling objects are another frequent cause of these accidents. Retail establishments are responsible for safely stocking shelves and storing other items to prevent objects from falling.
Holding Property Owners Accountable for Their Negligence
Property owners have a duty to warn their visitors about any unsafe or potentially hazardous conditions on their property. If you have been injured as a result of their failure to do so, we will fight on your behalf to obtain the full benefits you are entitled to for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages you have suffered.
