Slip and falls are some of the most common personal injury accidents. Whether there is a spill in the grocery store or an uneven sidewalk, falls can cause serious injuries. Property owners have a certain responsibility to provide a safe environment to any visitors to the property, so when they fail to uphold this responsibility, they can be held responsible with the help of Houston slip and fall accident lawyers.
Slip and fall accidents can use the legal theory of premises liability to hold property owners responsible. This theory states property owners must take the necessary precautions to either fix any hazards that could harm property visitors or adequately warn them of the danger.
While many slip and fall accidents occurs in places like grocery stores and retail establishments, premises liability applies to all property owners, whether residential or commercial. These accidents can happen on the jobsite, in apartments or other residences, or anywhere unsafe conditions exist on a property.
Slip and fall accidents are slightly different from other types of personal injury accidents. To recover damages, the injured party must show the property owner knew about the hazardous condition but failed to remedy the situation and failed to warn visitors, or that the property owner should have known about the dangerous condition, but didn’t.
While some injuries sustained from a this type of accident may be minor, other injuries can be severe and require emergency medical treatment.
After an accident, victims can face an economic burden including extensive medical bills and lost wages.
