Whether you are visiting a neighbor at their residence or running errands at a local business, slip and fall accidents can happen. These accidents are a common cause of personal injury and, depending on the circumstances, may warrant a claim against a negligent homeowner or business owner.
Various factors can contribute to a slip and fall incident. A proprietor may not have partitioned off a dangerous area on the premises, or an architect or contractor may have designed, or built, a structure not safe for pedestrians. Often times, slip and fall incidents are caused by things that could have been cleaned up or removed easily (i.e. liquids, debris, etc.), but for whatever reason were simply ignored. Unfortunately, serious injuries often result.
There are certain important factors that you should consider regarding how to handle your slip and fall accident, and how to determine if taking legal action is in your best interest.
