Slip and Fall Accidents Occur Because of Property Owner Negligence

No victim of a slip and fall is ever prepared for the incident. Nor can property owners expect that somebody is going to injure themselves in this manner on their property. They can, however, have protocols in place for properly handling a hazard that presents itself on their premises.

Here is a list of common causes of slips and falls:

  • Unstable flooring, such as loose rugs or tiles
  • Failing to follow safety codes
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Clutter in walkways
  • Unsecured cords or cables
  • Slippery floors from spills, rain, mud, or snow
  • Loose stair treads or broken handrails
  • Unmarked curbs
  • Potholes in parking lots
  • Cracks in sidewalks or uneven sidewalks

Zanes Law accepts all these—and any type—of any type of slip and fall case where a property owner or other party should have taken steps to prevent your accident and failed to do so.

Slips and Falls Yield Serious Injuries

The National Floor Safety Institute estimates the total cost of injuries due to falls ranges from $13 to $14 million per year.

Common injuries resulting from slip and fall accidents include:

  • Bone fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Sprains
  • Hip fractures
  • Traumatic brain injuries

These are painful, debilitating injuries, and their treatment costs a significant amount of money—not any easy payment to swing, especially if you have missed time at work due to your injuries. Zanes Law will do everything from A to Z to see that you recover your damages.

Property Owners Have a Duty to Keep Their Properties Safe for Occupants

Gravity is a part of the world we live in. Things fall, we trip, we slip, and we fall.  Sometimes a slip and fall accident is just an accident. But on many occasions, a property owner plays a direct role in the occurrence of slips and falls, and they should take responsibility when these accidents occur.

Duty of Care

A key personal injury law concept, known as the “duty of care” principle, also serves as the basis for slip and fall claims. Personal injury courts consider a property owner legally responsible for damages related to slips and falls on their property when following is accurate:

  • The property owner or one of their employees most likely knew about the slip and fall hazard (or created the hazard) but did not act to repair it or to warn property occupants of the hazard.
  • The property owner or one of their employees should have known about the hazard, based on the assumption that a “reasonable” person in the same position would have discovered the hazard and taken action to resolve it.

Causation and Damages

Our legal team will prove the “duty of care” arguments in your slip and fall case,

adding to the above the important elements that:

  • The property owner’s breach of this duty of care caused you to slip and fall.
  • You suffered physical, economic, and emotional losses as a result.

Zanes Law will do everything from A to Z to build an airtight case of negligence that will get you the compensation you deserve.
