Trip and Fall Accidents
Property owners can be held responsible if they fail to maintain their property to ensure it is safe for everyone. Trip and fall injuries can be very serious, and even fatal. A trip and fall accident can result in a variety of serious injuries, including fractures, broken bones, internal bleeding, head trauma, severe neck and back injuries, emergency surgery and even death.
Trip and fall accidents can occur anywhere:
- On a sidewalk or parking lot
- On stairs or on an escalator
- In a store, bar or restaurant
- In a private residence
Trip and fall accidents are often caused by the negligence of the property owner. If an owner has not maintained the property resulting in your injury, like not repairing broken stairs or preventing sidewalk falls due to cracked sidewalks, you have the right to seek monetary damages.
