Property owners are responsible for maintaining safe conditions. When someone slips and falls or trips and falls due to the owner’s failure to maintain safe conditions, we can help hold them accountable. Slip and fall accidents occur for many reasons, all of which can cause serious injury and bodily harm. Injuries resulting from falling on snow or ice, preventable tripping or other hazards, slipping on an unmarked freshly mopped floor, falling through a rotting deck, ski injuries caused by a resort that failed to appropriately protect its skiers, or another negligent scenario, entitles the injured individual to compensation. Sometimes slip and falls occur because of failure to follow building codes or design defects in addition to negligent property maintenance.
