Most Americans have experienced a slip and fall before at some point in their lives. Most of the time, it’s a minor event, and maybe it even happens on their own property. However, other slip and fall injuries are more serious and can occur on property that belongs to someone else. Suppose you’ve recently experienced a slip and fall of this nature. In that case, it’s time to connect with the experienced Indiana injury lawyers at Arshad, Pangere & Warring.
Our Indiana injury attorneys represent many clients who have sustained injuries because of negligent property owners. Slip and falls result from many different factors. Indiana has its fair share of winter weather, which can often cause slip and fall accidents. However, property owners are still responsible for ensuring their property is reasonably safe for visitors and customers. They should shovel driveways and treat sidewalks to prevent ice, clean up water accumulation in entryways, and plow parking lots.
Another potential cause of slip and fall accidents is a lack of property maintenance and repairs. Sometimes property owners ignore or don’t take the time to fix or maintain their property as they should. Broken stairs or railings, torn carpet, or inadequate lighting can all lead to a slip and fall.
Property owners and their employees have a duty to prevent and clean up substances that could make the floor slippery. For example, they need to clean up spills of liquid and food as soon as possible. If they notice the spill or someone alerts them to it, they have a duty to either clean it up or warn those on the premises of it to avoid the area. If appropriate steps aren’t immediately taken to rectify the situation, the store could be held liable for what happens next.
Slip and falls can lead to severe and sometimes even fatal injuries. Some of the resulting injuries can be just as severe as those sustained by car accident victims. These include:
Many of these injuries take months or even years to recover from if the victim recovers at all. If you have any of these injuries after a slip and fall, make it a point to contact skilled Indiana injury lawyers as soon as possible.
While some slip and fall accidents are embarrassing or simply out of clumsiness, many slip and falls are serious matters. Suppose your slip and fall is in the latter category and resulted in serious injury. In that case, you need our reputable Indiana injury attorneys on your side.
