“Slip-and-Falls,” or “Trip-and-Falls,” are just legal terms for when someone is injured by a fall. In our icy-cold climate, they are extremely common and can result in more serious injuries than some may think.
If the fall is caused by unsafe conditions the property owner could have avoided—for example, an icy driveway—the injured person may be entitled to compensation. Some common causes of Slip-and-Falls are:
- Slippery Floors
- Icy Stairs
- Impeded Walkways
Ever wonder why stores post those “Wet Floor” signs after they’ve mopped an area? It’s because Occupier’s Liability laws demand that those who manage a property exercise due diligence to ensure the safety of their visitors. Often, victims of slip-and-falls will think they’re responsible for the accident but if the occupier has been negligent in their duty of care to their visitors, the injured person deserves compensation for their injury.
That’s where KMSC Law comes in. We can help prove the occupier neglected their duty of care, and in doing so, we will ensure you are compensated for the emotional trauma, physical injuries, and loss of income you are entitled to due to your slip-and-fall injury.
