Protecting Victims of Slip & Fall Accidents
Did you know: A person who slips and falls on another person’s unsafe property and experiences bodily injury can claim losses including pain and suffering when an owner of a property knew (or should have known) about the dangerous conditions on their property. That’s why many slip and fall victims seek out a Columbus slip and fall attorney to evaluate their legal options.
Premises Liability (& Why It’s Important)
A legalese term often used is “premises liability.” This means owners of property are responsible for perilous conditions if they knew (or should have known) about them or directly caused them.
Examples of premises liability could be, but are not limited to, walkways and stairways with:
- Poor lighting
- Lack of proper railings
- Spills that were not properly cleaned
- Incorrectly constructed sidewalks
- Water, ice, or snow
- Inconsistent flooring levels
- Hidden hazards
There are many other possible examples of perilous conditions that may lead a person to slip and fall, and, as a result, experience bodily injury. Property owners have an obligation to keep their property safe and free of perilous conditions.
