Holding Property Owners Accountable For Injuries
When a property owner invites the public onto the property, he or she has a responsibility to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition. Owners of stores and other public places have a duty to keep the property in a sufficient condition to protect the safety of the people they invite onto the property.
When they fail to keep the property safe for the public and injuries occur, they need to be held accountable for the harm their failure has caused.
Some of the common types of property where slip-and-fall accidents occur include:
- Grocery stores (spilled liquid, dropped produce, etc.)
- Restaurants (spilled liquids, etc.)
- Big box stores (falling merchandise from high shelves, spilled liquids, debris, etc.)
- Parking lots/parking ramps (broken pavement, debris, etc.)
Take Your Accident Seriously
One mistake too many people make is failing to take their slip-and-fall accident seriously. After they slip and fall, they get up quickly and act like nothing happened because they are embarrassed. They think that if they act like they are not injured, they will be fine. Sometimes, that’s the case. Other times, slip and falls can result in bone fractures, disc herniations and other types of injuries that can have a serious impact on your life.
Take your case seriously. Seek medical attention as soon as possible. Gather names and contact information of anyone who saw what happened. Look around for cameras and ask the premises manager if there are cameras that may have recorded the incident. Contact an attorney as soon as possible. Valuable evidence such as security camera footage is often recorded over after a day and otherwise lost.
