Slip and Fall Injuries

 

Hopefully, you will never experience a slip and fall injury. However, it would be wise to learn how you can protect yourself in a legal and efficient way in case you ever do become a victim of this kind of accident. It’s important to know your legal rights and to seek the counsel of a professional legal expert.

What is a slip and fall injury?

When someone receives an injury from slipping and falling on the property of another person or business, then that is generally considered a slip and fall situation. Depending on the local laws, there may be some fluctuation of exactly which parties are liable. Usually, the owner of the property is the one responsible for keeping safety standards up to par so that pedestrians are safe while moving through public space. Precautionary tools such as noticeable signage or safely blocked off areas are often employed to meet safety practice standards and this is usually effective. Certain problems arise when it becomes unclear whether the accident was avoidable or the result of managerial neglect. Whenever you fear that legal action is the right course, make sure to contact a Willow Grove personal injury attorney for legal counsel. Our team will be able to assist you in deciding whether you have a case and what to do next.

What kinds of slip and fall injuries are there?

A slip and fall injury doesn’t have to be inside a place of business. Injuries from misplaced objects within public spaces also enter the realm of slip and fall injury. For example, a construction crew leaves their equipment unsafely placed on the sidewalk and someone trips over the object. In this situation, the construction crew or contractor could be sued for poor management practices.

Some other common causes of slip and fall injuries include:

  • Cleaning fluids
  • Ice
  • Drops in the floor
  • Hard to see objects placed in walking paths

What you can do to protect yourself

It’s not your responsibility to identify and avoid dangerous obstructions that may lead to injury. While you may not be able to totally defend yourself against a slip and fall injury, the legal system provides ample solution to a healthy recovery. By consulting a Willow Grove personal injury attorney, you’ll be taking the first step to fully claiming your legal rights.
