Causes Of Slip-And-Fall Accidents
When you’re an invited visitor to someone’s property (like a store, movie theater, office building or even a private home), the owner owes you a duty to keep that property safe for you, inside and out.
Conditions that could cause you to slip and fall include:
- Ice or snow on walkways or stops
- Poorly maintained sidewalks or steps
- Bad outdoor lighting
- Debris or spills on floors
- Torn or ripped carpeting
- Uneven floors
- Unmarked hazards
If you slip and fall, get medical help immediately, then contact a personal injury attorney. Never speak to the other party’s insurance company without your own legal counsel first.
As with any accident, your injuries could be long-lasting and affect you financially, physically and emotionally for some time. Don’t let someone else’s carelessness affect your life forever. Get in touch with attorney Howe and let him help you work toward compensation and recovery.
