Slip and fall injuries can result from a number of different circumstances, or possibly a combination of them. Some of the most common causes and factors are bad weather (ice, snow, sleet, rain, etc.), unstable stairways, faulty handrails, no handrails, unrepaired holes, and objects left on the floor. Slip and fall injuries are some of the most common cases in the field of premises liability. They can occur at a bar, a hotel, a restaurant, the grocery store—literally anywhere you are allowed to be.
Your damages may include loss of wages, diminished earning capacity, permanent or temporary disability, rehabilitation, future medical costs, and even punitive damages. It is important to contact an attorney immediately after suffering such an injury. Undoubtedly, the property owner has contacted his or her insurance company and will have an attorney working to right away to make a case as to why the property owner should not be liable. Also, if you wait too long to file your case, you may be barred by the statute of limitations.
