When a person slips or trips and is injured on someone else's property, the onus can oftentimes be erroneously placed on the person with questions like, Were you distracted? How could you be so careless? However, at Singh & Rani LLP we know it’s essential to consider the role and accountability of the property owner whose neglect may have caused the slip-and-fall. Slip-and-falls happen frequently on residential properties (apartments, houses, condominium buildings), in commercial establishments (malls, movie theaters, drug stores, amusement parks, hotels) or common outdoor spaces (sidewalks, parking lots). Additionally, slip-and-falls can also occur within a tenant’s apartment if the landlord fails to notify the tenant about any known defects within the premises.
What constitutes a slip-and-fall? What are common injuries resulting from a slip-and-fall? Slip-and-falls can be caused by spills on the floor, uneven walking surfaces, insufficient warning and signage about dangerous conditions, inadequately maintained sites(e.g. insufficient lighting), not adhering to building codes, and structural defects to name a few. Injuries resulting from a slip-and-fall can include brain, head, back, and spinal cord injuries leading to short and long-term cognitive harm as well as physical impairments such as sprains, fractures, and aches.
How can Singh & Rani LLP help in a slip-and-fall case? Our experienced slip-and-fall attorneys will help you gather timely evidence, such as photographs of the accident site and your injuries, and necessary medical reports. The lawyers at Singh & Rani LLP will investigate and litigate as to whether the property owner knew of a “dangerous condition” but did not remedy it as a “reasonable property owner” would, whether there were routine procedures to determine safety conditions (as well as proof), in addition to if local building codes were followed, and whether the condition lasted long enough for the owner to know about it. The injured party will also need to r hat they were using reasonable judgment to avoid any obvious and avoidableobstructions.
