Like most accidents, a slip and fall accident is an unexpected event. Slip and fall accidents can happen at any time, in any place, and for a myriad of reasons. Moreover, the injuries that can occur in a slip and fall accident can vary widely, ranging from minor cuts and bruises up to serious injuries like hip fractures, spinal cord injuries, or traumatic brain injuries. When you slip and fall on a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property that was there because the property or business owner failed to fulfill his or her duty to keep the premises in a reasonably safe condition, you may be entitled to receive compensation. Although this seems like a simple concept, the reality is that slip and fall accident cases can be incredibly complicated due to the factual evidence and the legal concepts and doctrines involved in these cases.

If you suffer a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property and the owner tries to argue that you were at fault for your accident, you should speak with an experienced slip and fall accident attorney. A knowledgeable attorney will be very familiar with the tricks and tactics that businesses and insurance companies try to use to avoid liability in slip and fall accidents and will have the expertise to effectively advocate on your behalf and hold property and business owners responsible to compensate you when you suffer an accident on their property.
If you’ve had a slip and fall in a store or other business, it is advisable that you let the store or business know about your accident. The store’s or business’s policy may require it to fill out an accident or incident report, which will start the claims process with the store’s or business’s liability insurance company or risk management company. Letting the company know about your accident will also allow it to preserve important evidence, such as surveillance video. If you fail to alert a store or business about your accident, if you later try to bring a claim for compensation they may argue that you never actually suffered an accident on their property.
