Slip and Fall Accidents

“I was injured in a fall on a sidewalk in front of a business. The walk was not shoveled after a snowstorm. My contacts with the business went unanswered until I engaged Dan Davis. The business soon settled with a five-digit sum. Great service from Dan.”

~Davis & Gelshenen Client

Slip and fall accidents are common, especially in cold-weather climates where ice and snow make sidewalks, parking lots and roads dangerous and slippery. A business or property owner is responsible for making their property safe. If they don’t take reasonable measures to do so, they are liable for injuries sustained due to their negligence.

Business owners are insured to cover this type of accident that occurs on their premises, and you are entitled to be compensated if you are injured due to a fall because they have failed to make their property safe.

Here are common causes of slip and fall accidents due to negligent property owners:

  • Unshoveled and unsalted sidewalks and parking lots
  • Uneven or cracked pavement
  • Poor lighting
  • Unattended spills that cause slippery floors
  • Loose mats or rugs
  • Broken handrails
  • Unkept stairs, or stairways that are not to code
  • Nursing home neglect
  • Poor on-the-job safety training
