Common Causes of Slip and Fall Injuries
While slip and fall injuries commonly occur due to uneven or slippery surfaces, accidents can also be caused by broken steps, raised flooring, ripped carpeting, poorly lit walkways, cluttered pathways, and inadequate warning signs.
To some extent, injury victims are protected by premises liability law, however, proving that a property owner was negligent can be difficult. Ultimately, a successful claim hinges on demonstrating that the owner knew about the hazardous condition, failed to correct it in a timely fashion and this failure resulted in the injury.
There are a number of other factors involved in these claims, including whether you were invited on to the property. In many cases, property owners may make the needed repairs or correct the hazardous condition soon after your accident which can make proving your case more difficult.
