Slips and Falls Attorney
One of the most common personal injury claims is known as a “slip and fall” accident, which means someone slipped or tripped and fell on someone else’s property and was injured as a result. Slip and fall accidents can happen on any premises when business owners, managers, employees, property owners, homeowners, or landlords allow an unsafe condition on their property to exist.
Property owners or landlords may be held liable for a slip and fall injury if they failed to keep up their properties. These can be complex cases, which is why it is important to retain the services of an attorney from Rad Law Firm today. Not everyone who slips and falls in a store, parking lot, or in a rented apartment has grounds to file a lawsuit. Sometimes, a business owner or landlord is not aware of a hazard that may have developed shortly before the accident. In other cases, a property owner cannot be held responsible if it’s determined that an ordinary person should expect to find the hazard and avoid it. That being said, there are many instances where injured victims in slip and fall accidents have a legitimate case. Accidents can happen for any number of reasons, from grocery store managers who fail to promptly address a spill to hotel staff who fail to upkeep a sidewalk during the winter months.

Most Common Slip and Fall Accident Injuries
Injuries sustained in a slip and fall accident can vary depending on the circumstances and location of your injury. A fall down a staircase due to a loose handrail can result in cuts, bruises and broken bones. A fall on pavement due to snow or ice can result in broken bones, fractures or a potentially debilitating head, neck or spinal cord injury. Even worse, a slip and fall sustained by an elderly relative at a nursing home may even lead to the wrongful death of that loved one.
After a slip, trip or fall accident, it’s critical to report the accident to management and to seek medical attention immediately. If you believe the conditions which led to your accident were preventable, you may have grounds to file a claim against a negligent property owner.
