Slip and Falls Archives

When someone owns property that can be accessed by the public, they have a responsibility to keep their grounds safe. If they don’t maintain reasonable safety, a person could become injured and they may be entitled to compensation. Additionally, someone could slip and potentially succumb to their injuries. The owner, of the place where the accident occurred, may be found negligent and responsible to pay compensation the survivors of the decedent.

There were 19,656 slip-and-fall fatalities in 2005, according to the Center for Disease Control. Some common factors in these deaths include obstructed or slippery walking areas, poorly lit walking paths, stairways without railing, absence of safety signs, and use of unapproved ladders and other equipment.
