Holding Property Owners Accountable For Slip-And-Fall Accidents
Being hurt in a slip-and-fall accident can initially seem like it is all your fault. You may not realize what you slipped on. You may not realize that someone should have taken care of that risk. You owe it to yourself to think about the situation and take action against a negligent property owner.
What Are The Property Owner’s Responsibilities?
Owners of restaurants, grocery stores, apartment buildings and other types of property where the public is invited to come in have a responsibility to keep the property safe. This means that they need to do things like:
- Perform regularly scheduled clean ups
- Check for spills or debris regularly (for example, produce, liquid soap, ice and snow)
- Remove or repair hazards in a timely fashion
When they fail to do so and someone gets hurt, they need to be held accountable.

We understand what types of evidence are necessary to help people obtain the compensation they deserve after they have been injured by a property owner’s negligence.
