Common Hazards That Contribute To Slip-And-Fall Injuries
As a guest at someone’s house or a customer at a commercial property, you shouldn’t have to worry about dangerous conditions. You should be able to assume that the property is in reasonably safe condition. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case.
Any number of hazards can contribute to slip-and-fall accidents, including:
- Spills that went unnoticed
- Debris in the walkway
- Uneven flooring
- Trip hazards
- Carpet or rug problems
Often, these accidents involve negligence or recklessness on the part of the property owner.
You Shouldn’t Have To Pay The Price
Slip-and-fall accidents can lead to serious injuries such as:
- Back and neck injuries
- Concussions and other head injuries
- Broken bones
- Torn ligaments
Your injuries may require extensive medical treatment, and they may leave you unable to work, either temporarily or permanently. The financial toll of these injuries can be enormous.
You shouldn’t have to pay the price for an injury caused by someone else’s carelessness or negligence. At The Law Office of Kenneth M. Mathews in Columbia, South Carolina, we can help you pursue compensation.
Going After The Insurance Company
These accidents are a type of premises liability claim. This means the property owner’s insurance company may be responsible for paying your damages. However, you still may face an uphill battle in proving your claim.
Our attorneys have a wealth of experience dealing with insurance companies. We understand how to negotiate a fair settlement, and we can also fight for you in court if needed.
