Slipping on a wet surface, tripping over an unseen obstacle or falling down can be more than embarrassing. Slip-and-fall accidents can be very painful, causing injuries with long recovery periods. We tend to blame ourselves for being clumsy, but in many cases, the accidents aren’t our fault – they’re caused by poor maintenance or negligence on the part of a property owner.
Federal, state and local laws require property owners and managers to properly maintain their facilities. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury because of improper maintenance or negligence, you may be able to recover medical expenses and receive compensation for pain and suffering from the negligent property owner or manager.
Unsafe conditions can result from failure to maintain sidewalks, floor coverings, vegetation, parking lots, drainage and other aspects of a property that cause visitors to slip, trip or fall. An experienced Gerling Law attorney can determine if any of these negligent security issues contributed to your injuries.
