Fall Down Cases
While each case offers different facts and circumstances and may be different for your case, land owners, or those occupying the land owe a duty to visitors, in varying degrees, to keep the property safe and free from unreasonable risks of harm. Slip and fall injuries often result from slippery conditions caused by water, paint, oil or other lubricants, food and drink, or other slick substances on a walking surface. Trip and fall injuries may be caused by hidden hazards, holes in the floor, defective construction, poor lighting, uneven walkways or missing handrails. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, on a sidewalk or other public property, or at a retail store or other business, you may have a claim to recover for your injuries.
