What Is Considered A Valid Slip-And-Fall Claim?
You can recover for injuries on public or private land, inside or outside and at a commercial or residential property. In the most general terms, you could have a valid claim for personal injury compensation anywhere there is an unsafe condition that causes you to suffer injury.
Can you do anything to protect your case? Yes! Essentially the same rules apply whether you slip on a property or are in a crash. Snap pictures on your cellphone, talk to witnesses and get their contact information.
Common dangerous or hazardous conditions include:
- Cracked or uneven sidewalks
- Ice or snow that has not been properly removed
- Unsafe work sites
- Spilled liquid or debris left in the aisles
- Wet floors that lack warning signs
- Slippery surfaces around pools
- Uneven transitions between flooring
- Overgrown plants that block visibility at intersections
- Poorly designed parking lots
- Dangerous playground structures
- Railings that are flimsy or too short
- Staircases that have rotten wood
- Decks that are not properly attached
- Inadequate lighting
- Inadequate security measures
