You may have heard of slip and fall accidents occurring but not really understood what they are. Many people think slip and fall incidents are minor, but they can lead to serious injuries. At The Hayes Law Firm, APC, we are ready to help when you need a Montebello slip and fall accident attorney. Our knowledgeable and experienced team will get to work investigating what happened in your case so we can secure the compensation you deserve.

When is a property owner liable for a slip and fall accident?

Property owners have a duty to ensure their property is free from reasonably foreseeable dangers. If there are hazards present that they cannot remedy immediately, property owners have a duty to alert anyone on the property to the potential danger.

Slip and fall incidents happen in a variety of ways, and a property owner could be held liable if the following situations are present:

  • Floors wet from spills or roof leaks
  • Failure to put a wet floor sign up after mopping
  • Loose carpeting, stairs, or floorboards
  • Low-lying obstacles (merchandise, shelving, boxes, etc.)
  • Uneven walking surfaces (including parking lots)

How often do slip and fall accidents occur?

According to the National Floor Safety Institute, slip and fall incidents result in nearly one million people seeking treatment in hospitals each year across the country. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says that older Americans are the most at-risk segment of the population for serious injuries due to slip and fall incidents.

What are the most common slip and fall injuries?

Slip and fall incidents can lead to a variety of injuries, some of them severe. It is not uncommon for our Montebello slip and fall accident attorneys to see the following injuries as a result of a slip and fall incident:

These injuries can lead to a person needing extensive medical care and long recovery times. If a victim cannot work while they recover from their injuries, they could lose the income they need to pay their household bills. If they do not receive compensation for their injuries, they could be on the line for paying major medical bills.
