Slip and Fall Accidents

Huntsville Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer

Premises liability, or, more commonly referred to as slip and fall accidents, can arise when you are injured on someone else’s property, such as at the home of a neighbor, the local supermarket, or even a local park, as a result of hazardous conditions ranging from slippery floors to defective machinery or other hidden dangers.

Slip and Fall Examples

Some of the most common causes of slip and fall injuries include:

  • Floors and walkways that are slippery, cracked or unevenly surfaced, poorly lit, or littered with debris

  • Malfunctioning equipment, ranging from smoke detectors and railings to exposed wires and faulty elevators

  • Inadequate security precautions, such as broken locks, insufficient access restriction, and a lack of visible supervision, can enable criminals to prey upon guests or visitors.

Some common injuries from slip and fall accidents can include, but are not limited to:
  • Broken elbow, broken wrist, broken arm, broken ankle, or broken hip

  • Back injuries such as herniated discs, resulting in chronic back pain

  • Head injuries

Slip and Fall Liability & Slip and Fall Prevention

When you visit someone else’s property, what responsibilities does the property owner have regarding your safety? Property owners and managers should:

  1. Inspect and monitor the property for any dangerous conditions, which may injure a visitor or guest

  2. Repair and/or eliminate the dangerous conditions as soon as possible

  3. Post warnings that put visitors and guests on notice about any existing dangerous conditions
