Injuries caused on others property from slips and falls are often premises liability accidents. Property owners have a duty to maintain their property; if they fail and someone is injured, they may be liable. Usually these accidents happen in parking lots or shopping centers, but they can also occur on sidewalks or in stairwells. Injuries sustained from a slip and fall can linger throughout a lifetime.
Slips and falls can result in injuries as minor as a couple bumps and bruises or as major as spinal cord injuries or premature death. Unfortunately, some victims brush off their injuries as minor and either never file a claim or tell the insurance company "it was nothing." Yet, as time passes, the extent of the injury will manifest and "nothing" turns into something that requires treatment.
