Slip and Fall Accidents


Ottumwa / Oskaloosa Personal Injury Attorney

A "slip and fall" refers to an injury sustained by someone who slips, trips, or falls due to an unsafe or dangerous condition on another's property. A slip and fall can occur on private property or in a public place, both indoors and outdoors. The consequences of slip and fall injuries can range from cuts and bruises to broken bones, head trauma, back injuries, and even death. These types of injuries are especially prevalent and serious for older citizens. They may occur during dangerous weather conditions, such as ice, sleet, rain, and snow where surfaces, pathways, and floors are uneven or slippery, and in many other situations. Generally, to make a personal injury claim for a slip and fall on another's property, it must be shown that the landowner, manager, or property owner was negligent.

Negligence in Slip and Fall Accidents

If you are on someone else's property and you are injured because of a hazardous or unsafe condition, the property owner may be liable for the damages connected with your injuries. Generally, it is the responsibility of property owners to provide a safe environment for guests, customers, patrons, and others who visit the property at the behest of the property owner. Hazardous conditions may include wet, slippery floors, uneven flooring, poorly lit hallways, stairways, and parking structures, torn carpeting, broken tiles, potholes, or some other hidden hazard.
