Our Murfreesboro Personal Injury Lawyer Fights for the Compensation You Need
When you slip and fall as a result of an obstruction or unsafe surface, a property owner is usually to blame. Unfortunately, all too often property owners care more about their profits than about their patrons' safety. They may fail to put into place a regular maintenance and inspection program which results in their grounds becoming worn and run down.
If you were injured because a property owner failed to maintain his property or failed to warn you of any inherent dangers on his property, you most likely have a successful slip and fall case on your hands. These accidents commonly occur at public places such as restaurants, malls, gas stations, hotels, parks, parking lots and upon sidewalks.
Conditions that Cause Slip and Fall Accidents
Examples of unsafe conditions which can contribute to slip and fall accidents include:
- Wet floors
- Rises in the floor level
- Torn carpets
- Cracked sidewalks
- Loose gravel or dirt
- Broken steps and handrails
- Poor lighting
- Materials left on the ground
- Icy patios
Proving a Property Owner Is at Fault
To prove that a property owner was at fault for your injuries, all that must be proven is that he or she caused the dangerous condition, he or she knew of the hazard and failed to remedy it, or he or she should have noticed the dangerous condition and fixed it.
