When can I file a “Slip and Fall” claim?
Although many slip and fall accidents are a result of a person’s own clumsiness, others are due to a premises owner’s negligence in protecting the safety of everyone who enters that property. A premises owner can be held liable for a person’s slip and fall injuries if they neglected to keep the floor clear of hazards that could reasonably cause someone harm, if they knew about a hazard and failed to warn others about it, or if there was a hazard that they were unaware of that they reasonably should have been aware of.
If you were injured in a slip and fall accident due to someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible to pursue legal action and hold them responsible for your injuries and accompanying losses.
