When you visit someone’s property, whether it’s a commercial business or a private home, you have the right to expect that the premises are safe. It’s the responsibility of the homeowner or business owner to make sure their property is free of hazardous conditions. If they fail to do so, you or someone you love could suffer a slip and fall injury because of their negligence. Slip and fall lawyers can guide you toward the compensation you deserve when a significant injury has occured on someone’s property.
Causes of Slip and Fall Injury
Slip and fall accidents are the most frequent injuries to occur due to negligence on someone else’s property. Most of these incidences happen because of the following scenarios:
- Unsafe flooring
- Wet surfaces
- Uneven concrete
- Unsafe stairs
