Negligence in Slip and Fall Cases

Slips and falls generally fall under the legal theory known as “premises liability.” In premises liability cases, the law imposes a burden on all property owners to look after their property the way any reasonable person would.

When property owners fail to maintain their property, or neglect to remove hazardous conditions from their land and buildings, they can be held liable for injuries that result.

The Seriousness of Slip and Fall Injuries

For as long as entertainment has existed, people have used slips and falls as a form of comic relief. Whether it’s a banana peel or a set of icy steps, watching a person lose control and hit the deck tends to make people laugh. Falls may be funny on stage, in films, or on television, but they are rarely a laughing matter in real life.

In fact, falls are a leading cause of death across all age groups and the number one cause of death in the elderly, according to the National Council on Aging. Every year, 2.8 million seniors are treated in emergency rooms following a fall, and 800,000 are admitted to the hospital after a slip and fall.

Although some of these falls are accidents, others are the result of a property owner’s failure to remove hazardous conditions from a store, parking lot, or residence.

Furthermore, slips and falls can be serious regardless of a person’s age. Slips and falls can also have lingering consequences that forever change a person’s life.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that experiencing a fall can make a person more fearful about having another one, which can lead slip and fall victims to avoid exercise and any activities that might result in another accident.

Client Reviews
John is a gem and I'm tremendously glad that I connected with him. Wanting to put my accident behind me ASAP and minimize time and energy spent toward that end, I made the rookie mistake of attempting to settle on my own. I eventually reached an impasse with the insurance company but simply couldn't bring myself to accept their settlement offer. Drained by all the back-and-forth at this point, I didn't thoroughly research options (which is, ironically, a big part of my reason for not obtaining a lawyer in the first place - there are an overwhelming number of personal injury lawyers in the area!) and simply contacted the first lawyer from whom, simply put, I got a good Google vibe - enter John. That positive impression was immediately confirmed via our first phone call (for which he made himself available that very same day) and further cemented throughout subsequent meetings. John exceeded expectations in every metric, netting me over double the initial offer despite my less-than-ideal handling of everything at the outset. He answered every question I had with ease and honesty and was always available and communicative throughout the process. John is personable, compassionate, transparent, and very good at what he does! I can't recommend him highly enough - hope to never need him again but if so, he will now be my first text!
