Where ever we shop, businesses and store have the responsibility to make sure their property is safe for employees and customers. Homeowners have the same responsibility. Sometimes accidents just happen, but other times accidents are caused by the failure of a business or homeowner to remove or repair a dangerous condition. Home and business owners have the responsibility to keep their premises safe; free of hazards that might harm the public. Failure to clean up spills, remove broken glass, repair floors or fix frayed electrical lines can endanger visitors. People often get hurt trying to cross a wet floor or tripping over lose bricks. If that happens, the law allows the injured person a number of options.
Premises liability cases are known by many names. Often these cases are referred to as slip-and-fall cases. Slip-and-fall accidents can lead to very serious injuries. Broken bones, dislocated joints, head injuries and in some instances, death can result when an unsuspecting visitor is injured because of neglected repairs and poor maintenance of a business or home.
If you or a family member is injured in a slip-and-fall accident in a store or business immediately have the injures evaluated and treated by a medial professional. Often insurance companies will contact you directly and try and arrange for a quick settlement. That is why it is important to consult with an experienced injury lawyer in order to understand your rights. Sometimes the consequences of a serious injury are not apparent for months. Settling before you know the long-term impact of a fall could keep you from getting the medical treatment you need.
