If you slip and fall on someone else’s property, the property owner may be liable for your injuries. Thousands of people are injured, some very seriously, when they slip, stumble, or trip on wet floors, rough ground, or defective stairs. If you have been injured in this manner, it is important to contact us so that we can navigate the following initial questions:

  • Did poor or broken lighting contribute to the accident?
  • If you tripped over an object placed or left on the ground, was there a legitimate reason for the object to be there?
  • If there was at some time a legitimate reason for the object to be there, did that reason still exist at the time of the accident? Could the object have been removed or covered or otherwise made safe?
  • Were there any warnings that the spot might be dangerous?
  • If you tripped over an area of carpet, floor, or ground that was bulging or torn had the dangerous spot been there long enough that the owner should have known about it?
  • Does the property owner have regular procedures for examining and cleaning or repairing the premises? If so, what proof does the owner have
  • Could a simple barrier have been created?
  • Could a warning have been given to prevent people from slipping or tripping?
  • Were you doing anything that kept you from paying attention to where you were going?
  • Were you running, jumping, or fooling around?
