Holding The Owners Of Dangerous Properties Accountable
Property owners and businesses have a duty to keep their premises in a safe condition for their customers and visitors. Slips, trips and falls caused by hazardous conditions existing on another’s property often result in severe injuries, especially broken bones. It is important to contact an attorney specializing in premises liability and slip-and-fall cases quickly after an accident, as the scene is subject to change due to repairs, weather or cleaning.

What To Know About Slip-And-Fall Injuries
Slip-and-falls are some of the most common forms of premises liability accidents. Many people underestimate the severity of the injuries that can result from slip-and-falls. These injuries can include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Bone fractures
- Neck and spinal cord injuries
- Permanent or partial paralysis
If you slip and fall on someone else’s property, you should seek medical treatment immediately. If you can, document the scene of the accident by taking photos. Do not speak to any insurance company representatives; instead, contact a local attorney.
