Slip and fall accidents can occur when businesses that own or lease property, fail to correctly maintain them, or fail to warn visitors of known hazards on the premises. When property owners or lessees fail to repair potholes, clear the floor of foreign substances, repair uneven pavement or fix broken handrails, they may be held responsible for any resulting injuries or deaths.
If you slipped and fell because of inadequate lighting, lack of handrails, slippery or uneven surfaces, or unexpected items in your path, you may be able to recover monetary compensation from the property owner for your damages. But you must act fast so that a preservation letter may be sent requesting preservation of video surveillance and other evidence that will help prove your case.
