Slip & Fall Accident Attorney – Columbus, OH
Slips, Trips and Falls
Slip & fall accidents occur when a person experiences an injury from a slip, trip or fall as a result of a dangerous condition on another person's property. Property owners are responsible for dangerous conditions on their property if they created them, knew about them or should have known about them. This is known as premises liability, and depending on the circumstances, an injury case involving compensation may be in order if there is evidence that an injury was the result of the property owner’s mistake or negligence.
Slip & fall accidents can occur due to the following:
- Improperly Lit Stairways
- Lack of Proper Railings on Stairs
- Food or Liquid Spills
- Improperly Constructed Sidewalks
- Changes in Flooring Type
- Loose Rugs or Floor Mats
- Manholes Without Warning
- Weather Conditions
Determining the cause of the slip & fall accident is essential in moving forward with a slip & fall claim and requires a clear understanding of how the accident occurred and if the property owner was aware of the condition that led to the injury.
