Holding Negligent Property Owners Accountable
Most slip-and-fall accidents and the resulting legal claims fall into a legal area called premises liability. Property owners are responsible for keeping their premises safe for visitors. When someone slips, falls and gets hurt on a residential or commercial property due to a spill or another form of neglect, the property owner is considered liable.
Slip-and-Fall Accidents in Stores
At The Vic Hawk Law Firm, we often see premises liability cases arising from slip-and-fall accidents that occur in supermarkets and other retail stores. We know how a broken bone, a back injury or a head injury can completely disrupt a person's life, and we are dedicated to helping injury victims recover the maximum compensation available. Falls are commonly caused by:
- Failure to remedy spills or fallen merchandise
- Distractions that put customers in danger
- Dangerous optical illusions
- Negligent safety inspections
Many stores are understaffed and fail to clean up dangerous spills and merchandise in a timely manner. If you or someone you care about suffered a slip-and-fall injury in retail or department store, you should know that the store will do everything possible to deny responsibility and claim that the injured customer was at fault. Contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
Swimming pools are also a common place where slip-and-fall accidents occur. At The Vic Hawk Law Firm, we have significant experience helping clients who have suffered injuries at swimming pools, including those who have fallen from above-ground swimming pool ladders.
