Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can result in painful injuries requiring the injured person to miss time from work and preventing them from performing everyday tasks. The vast majority of slip and fall injuries can be prevented by property owners taking steps to provide safe properties for visitors and occupants. A few examples of environments where slip and fall accidents occur: Poorly kept walkways and steps, poorly lit hallways and staircases, cracked and damaged sidewalks, stores without displayed warning signs, loose or missing handrails.

Basic duty of care: A person who [owns/leases/occupies/controls] property is negligent if he or she fails to use reasonable care to keep the property in a reasonably safe condition. A person who [owns/leases/occupies/controls] property must use reasonable care to discover any unsafe conditions and to repair, replace, or give adequate warning of anything that could be reasonably expected to harm others. (CACI 1001) Unsafe conditions are when: A condition on the property creates an unreasonable risk of harm; the person knew or, through the exercise of reasonable care, should have known about it; and the person failed to repair the condition, protect against harm from the condition, or give adequate warning of the condition. (CACI 1003)

Property owners, grocery store owners and retail store owners and even large corporations can be held liable for your injuries if negligence was the main cause of your slip and fall accident. It is just as unacceptable for a property owner to neglect the repair of cracked walkways and faulty railings on staircases, as it is for a store owner to ignore standardized safety procedures by neglecting to place out warning signs when the floor is wet or if an item recently spilled onto the store’s floor. Those who are responsible for your injury should be held accountable. Mr. Charles P. Charlton can assist you with your injury claim today.
