Slip & Fall Accidents
A slip and fall accident can happen anytime, anywhere, especially if unstable flooring or obstacles create an unsafe walkway. When serious slip and fall injuries occur as a result of a careless person’s action or failure to fix a problem, victims may benefit greatly from hiring a Tennessee/Georgia premises liability lawyer and filing a personal injury claim.
HOW SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENTS OCCUR
A slip and fall accident happens when a person’s foot does not connect properly with the ground, resulting in a slipping motion that can cause a nasty fall. Slip and falls happen for a variety of reasons, including:
- Wet or icy surfaces
- Loose gravel
- Uneven concrete, unstable wood flooring, or loose floor tiles
- Holes in the flooring
- Poor lighting
- Loose handrails
- Loose or uneven steps
- Debris or obstacles in walkways
- Torn or uprooted carpet
- Nails in the floorboards
- Poorly illuminated walkways
If the accident happened on property other than that which you own, property where you had permission to be, you may have a valid premises liability claim against an owner or caretaker. Slip and fall accidents can happen in retail shops, grocery stores, apartment buildings, government buildings, public parks and sidewalks, places of employment, office buildings, and many other locations.
