Slip and Fall Negligence

If you have suffered a slip and fall in a retail store, or on someone’s property and negligence was involved, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages. If a business owner or property manager fails to keep the premises reasonably safe by failing to maintain walkways, lighting, floors, or steps, then slip and falls can occur and cause bodily and serious injuries.

Determining Premise Liability

In order to make a slip and fall lawsuit claim, it is important to determine liability. If a slip and fall occurs in a store or on someone’s property, negligence must be proved for the store or person to be legally responsible. If the owner knows about a dangerous spot and does not fix it or provide warning, then the owner of the premises failed to provide a reasonably safe environment.

  • Poorly maintained walkways
