Slip-and-falls or trip-and-falls can happen inside or outside of the property, and be caused by conditions such as:

  • Wet floors
  • Defective or uneven flooring
  • Defective stairs
  • Defective escalator or elevator
  • Debris or objects in aisles or pathways

Most people do not realize that if they fall in a retail store, the store is not automatically responsible for the medical bills they incurred as a result of their slip-and-fall. The retail store knows this, and requests you fill out an accident report. This information helps the retail store build their defense. The only way to hold a store responsible for injuries after falling on their property is to prove that they had actual or constructive knowledge of a dangerous condition. There are several ways of proving a store or property owner knew or should have known of the hazardous condition that caused your fall. Hiring a lawyer experienced in handling slip-and-fall claims is essential to maximizing your recovery.

Slip-and-fall accidents are the most common type of premises liability case, and can cause serious injuries, including spinal cord injuries, brain injuries and sometimes death.
