Slip And Fall Injuries
When a person enters upon the property of another, the property owner generally must exercise some duty of care to ensure the safety of the premises. Oftentimes, as a result of an owner’s failure to properly manage the property, the entrant suffers some injury. These injuries are known as slip-and-falls, and are characterized by the entrant slipping, tripping, stumbling, or falling, and sustaining an injury in the process.
Common places where slip-and-falls occur: construction sites, restaurants, malls, grocery stores, the workplace, amusement parks, stadiums, and private residences. Essentially, any popularly-frequented place is a potential site for a slip-and-fall injury.
When it comes to slip-and-falls, property owners will often look to deflect fault back upon the injured party and minimize their own liability in the process, which is one reason why it is so important for the victim to obtain counsel as soon after the injury as possible.
