Common Types of Premises Liability Accidents

Whether someone is visiting a private residence, shopping in a grocery store, or walking along a public sidewalk, accidents can occur for a variety of reasons. An injury could result from tripping on an uneven sidewalk, slipping on a wet floor at a mall, or falling down crumbling steps.

Some dangerous property conditions that can cause accidents include:

  • Inadequate lighting
  • Unsafe or narrow stairways
  • Merchandise falling from shelving
  • Wet or slippery floors
  • Torn carpeting or unbalanced flooring
  • Uneven sidewalks
  • Negligent care of a publicly owned area, such as a pothole in the ground
  • Safety code violations

Depending on the cause of the accident, you may be entitled to compensation if you are injured on someone else's property.

Injuries Caused by Slip and Fall Accidents

Many slip and fall injuries are minor, but even seemingly small injuries can have a far-reaching effect on your life. You may get strapped with unplanned bills or be unable to enjoy certain activities due to pain.

Examples of common injuries sustained as a result of fall down accidents include:

The most severe accidents may result in multiple surgeries and extensive physical therapy. In extreme cases, a slip and fall can cause a victim's death, resulting in a potential wrongful death lawsuit.
