University Heights Slip and Fall Lawyers
When you slip and fall, the outcome is unpredictable. In many cases, you may suffer a minor embarrassment. However, in other cases, the consequences can be far more devastating. A fall can have lasting effects, especially if it happens from a great height.
When you slip and fall due to the negligence of another person, you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries. Often, these lawsuits target a property owner who failed to address a dangerous hazard on their premises.
It is a mistake to take these claims alone. Property owners often have significant resources to fight a legal battle, and often they have the support of a powerful insurance company. You can increase your chances of a successful outcome with the help from our team of University Heights slip and fall lawyers.
How slip and fall accidents occur
When these accidents occur due to your own clumsiness, you are not entitled to financial compensation from anyone else. However, many injuries happen due to hazards on the property of another person. If they failed to take reasonable steps to address these issues, an experienced slip and fall lawyer could guide you in holding them accountable.
While a large number of these claims arise on the premises of a business, it is not uncommon for these accidents to also happen on private property. Additionally, it may also be possible to pursue an injury claim for a fall that occurs on public property. Some factors that contribute to these falls include:
- Accumulated snow or ice
- Wet pavement
- Spilled food or drinks
- Loose rugs
- Insufficient lighting
- Broken stairs
- Loose banisters
- Faulty scaffolding
