The most common slip and fall accidents
A slip and fall accident is virtually unavoidable in certain instances, no matter how careful you are. Slip and fall accident attorney Nora Leto works to recover compensation for victims of any type of accident, including:
- Cracked sidewalks — Cracked sidewalks pose multiple dangers to anyone walking on them, and they can cause a range of injuries, including twisted ankles and torn knee ligaments. Depending on where the sidewalk involved is located, the property owner or the municipality in charge of the roads in the area is at fault for its condition.
- Slippery floors — Slippery surfaces can cause a serious injury to anyone walking on them. Even if there is a sign warning people about a surface, the building owners and maintenance crews have a responsibility to make sure their floors are as safe to travel on as possible. We pursue the negligent party to help victims of a personal injury recover the proper compensation.
- Dangerous parking lots — Large parking lots are filled with many hazards, including cracked pavement and potholes. These types of surfaces can cause a serious slip and fall accident, resulting in bruises, broken bones and torn ligaments. It’s the responsibility of any business or property owner to maintain a safe walking surface for pedestrians.
- Hazardous conditions — One of the most common causes of a slip and fall accident is a hazardous walking condition due to weather, including rain, snow and ice. These surfaces should be shoveled and plowed by the property owner before anyone can walk on them.
