Property owners have a duty to maintain safe conditions for inhabitants, workers, visitors, and others who may reasonably be expected to use their properties. When walking areas are not safe property owners must warn others of the adverse conditions. Property owners who fail to properly warn of adverse conditions may be liable if someone sustains injury due to a slip and fall on the property.
If you have suffered from a slip and fall incident, you may need legal help in order to determine culpability. Do not make the mistake of working directly with the property owner’s insurance company, because they may attempt to limit your compensation.
If you have fallen as a result of a property owner’s negligence, you may have a premises liability claim against the property owner.
Please note the statutes of limitation may bar recovery of damages if legal action is taken after the statutorily prescribed time period. This means that if your case is not filed within a predefined amount of time after the incident, you may not be able to claim damages at all.
