Places Where Slips And Falls Frequently Happen
At Keller, Woods & Thompson, P.A., we have helped countless Minnesota and Wisconsin families recover after suffering an injury in a fall. We understand how these injuries can impact all aspects of your life.
For the sake of your case, it’s important to understand places where slip-and-fall accidents could happen in order to make a claim. Most slip-and-fall accidents happen at supermarkets and restaurants. However, slip-and-fall accidents can happen anywhere that there is an unsafe environment — including private property.
A few of the more common areas that people tend to slip or fall include:
- Icy sidewalks, driveways or parking lots
- Unmarked wet floors in shopping malls or retail outlets
- Loose steps or paving on private property
If you are on someone’s private property and experience a slip-and-fall injury because of an unsafe environment, a slippery surface or a defective surface, the owner of the property could be responsible.
After A Fall, What Next?
When a slip-and-fall accident takes place, the business owner or the homeowner is responsible for the personal injury because it is their job to keep the property safe. It is likely that they caused the unsafe conditions, knew about them or should have known about them.
