If you have been injured in a slip or trip and fall accident, it is in your best interests to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer right away.
Falls in Grocery Stores and Commercial Properties
Any place where the general public is invited to come and shop or conduct business has a duty to conduct reasonable inspections to keep the premises safe for their patrons. Spills and leaks in machines often cause hard to notice slip hazards in public places. Faulty railing, rotten balconies and steps, poor lighting, holes and elevation changes in walkways all may lead to a serious injury from an unanticipated fall.
These businesses expect these falls to happen and they often have ‘risk management teams’ who know how to take action to hide the evidence of their liability. If you wait to speak with an attorney who will take quick action in your case, it is possible that the problem will be repaired and the evidence will disappear. Contact an attorney who will investigate the scene right away, before the negligent party can change or repair the faulty condition on the premises.
Private Properties and Residences
Homeowners are also responsible for eliminating and/or disclosing known hazards and hazards of which they should know upon reasonable inspection to their social guests. They must tell their guests of potential risks they encounter when they are invited in.
In addition, licensees and even certain trespassers have a right to be warned of known dangers. A dangerous condition on property that is likely to draw children or others onto the property because of its allure or appeal is an example of this known as an “attractive nuisance.” Properties with swimming ponds, trails, or tracks that light be reasonably anticipated to draw people onto the property may fall under the attractive nuisance doctrine if they conceal a hidden danger.
