Seek the compensation you need after falling on a premises

Slipping and falling may seem like it's just a part of life, but if you slip and fall on the premises of a business or local residence, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Legally, slip-and-fall accidents fall under premises liability lawsuits, and they can be launched against any party who owns or cares for a property and is negligent, leading to injury.

Property owners can be held accountable for failing to protect others from harm on their properties. Slipping and falling at the mall due to a wet floor that isn't marked, for instance, shows negligence in telling others about the property's dangers, while tripping due to a lack of lights showing uneven ground can prove that a property owner wasn't concerned about a fall hazard.

Drowning in unattended swimming pools, getting stuck in an elevator or hurt by one that isn't working properly, or being mugged in a dark area of a parking lot can all be reasons to see a lawsuit against a property owner. These areas should have been well lit or maintained better, but because the owner was negligent, you were put in danger.

Even at your own home, you know you are the one held responsible if someone slips and falls on ice you haven't removed or water that has gathered and not been marked. Why shouldn't other owners be held to that same standard? The truth is, they are, and you can file a claim to seek compensation. Our website has more information on premises liability claims and how you can move forward with one today.
