Slip and Fall Injury Causes

By The Law Office of Timothy A. Hughes  Feb. 3, 2011 3:40p

Slip and fall injuries are an extremely common type of injury that can occur almost anywhere in the world. Many people are likely to suffer a minor slip and fall accident in the course of their lifetime. There are many people however, who will suffer much more severe injuries from slip and fall accidents resulting in catastrophic injuries or disabilities. 

Often, these types of injuries will occur due to the negligence of property owners or businesses that allow hazards to exist in publicly available walking areas. These property owners can usually be held liable for these injuries, and be legally required to pay compensation to injured victims for the benefit of medical expenses, wage loss and pain and suffering. If you or a loved one has suffered a slip and fall accident due to an individual's negligence you should seek legal representation from a Mobile County lawyer  as soon as possible.  

Slip and fall injuries most often occur due to the existence of hazards in walkways. These types of hazards can include wet or slippery floors, uneven walking surfaces, dim or inadequate lighting, broken or missing stairs, loose handrails, objects on the floor in walking areas, and even icy hazards from uncared for sidewalks. Property owners have a responsibility to assume reasonable care of their property, but when they neglect this duty they can be held responsible for any injuries that occur.
