Slip and Fall Personal Injury Cases

Ice and snow are only a few reasons that can cause a slip and fall

We all know how easy it is to take a bad fall on a slippery surface that has been neglected due to the accumulation of ice, snow and rain. However, slip, fall, and premises liability cases include many scenarios or conditions that can be hazardous to patrons such as:

  • Slippery surfaces due to water, ice, snow, recent waxing, recent mopping, or foreign substance (fruit, vegetables, broken containers, oil, debris).
  • Violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
  • Improperly maintained restroom areas of establishments.
  • Areas that have sharp edges which cause lacerations.
  • Pothole, cracks, uneven surface in parking lots and walkways.
  • Obstructions, tangled cords, and hanging objects that are in unexpected places.
  • Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) violations.
  • Defective flooring, surfaces, walkways, or concrete.
  • Defective conditions in parking lots and building entrance ways.
  • Carpeting that is not maintained, bunched up, or slips under your feet.
  • Improperly maintained handrails.
  • Walkways and stairways that lack sufficient lighting.
  • Building code violations may indicate negligence on the part of a landowner.
  • Areas where the surface is unsafe because debris, oily substances, liquids that have leaked onto the surface where patrons are present.

People rarely fall on clean, dry surfaces. The slip factor of a surface is measured by a test known as “Coefficient of Friction” (COF). A COF for a given surface is an assigned number which describes how much force is needed to move an object on a certain surface. A COF of zero means that a person is more likely to fall, while a higher number (like 0.5) means that there's good traction.

Take Pictures, Obtain Video, and Get the Names of Witnesses

The property owner or landlord may alter or take remedial measures to change the condition that caused the slip and fall making it difficult to recreate the hazardous condition that caused your injuries. In addition, witnesses may be difficult or impossible to locate if too much time lapses after an incident. Therefore, it is essential that the evidence be preserved as soon as possible. This means taking pictures, obtaining surveillance videos, and securing witness statements and their identity.

Open and Obvious Conditions

You may file a case against a property owner, homeowner, or business if you suffer an injury because of a dangerous condition caused by the neglect of the property owner or establishment. Failure to maintain property and failure to abide by building can constitute negligence. The open and obvious doctrine was OVERTURNED in Michigan pursuant to the cases of Pinsky v Kroger Co of Michigan and Kandil-Elsayed vs. F & F Oil, Inc. Prior to this legal development, a person was not able to claim damages for a slip and fall incident if the condition that caused the slip and fall was open and obvious. This made it almost impossible to claim damages for injuries caused by noticeable conditions that were visible to the naked eye. Now, you are not precluded from making a claim and getting PAID just because the condition is open and obvious or in plain view.

Senior Citizens, Handicapped or Disabled: We Will Protect your Rights.

The American with Disabilities Act, OSHA standards, along with building codes, are in place to protect everyone, including employees at the workplace, senior citizens, and those with special needs or mobility limitations. An uneven surface can be like a cliff to an individual with a disability. If you have been injured on the property of another because of the negligence of the owner, you are entitled to file a claim for all pain, suffering and financial losses. Furthermore, a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, OSHA violation, or failure to comply with building codes may invoke an automatic finding of negligence making it almost impossible for the owner of property to deny or defend the case.
