Slip and Fall Claims

We handle incidents resulting in injury due to the improper management of property or negligent attention to safety hazards. Such claims may also involve the failure to use visible warning signs to mark potentially dangerous areas.

These claims may arise from conditions at a place of business or another commercial or residential site. Injuries often result from:

  • Inadequate floor / surface maintenance or cleaning
  • Standing water
  • Wet or slippery flooring or other surfaces
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Broken stairs
  • Sharp edges
  • Other defects

Inadequate security issues can also form the basis of a product liability claim against bars, entertainment spots and other businesses.

Construction Site Hazards

Slip and fall/premises liability accidents at construction sites can result from:

  • Unmarked hazards
  • Violations of OHSA standards
  • Open elevator shafts
  • Improper barriers
  • Unsecured guard rails
  • Unsecured supports
  • Lack of proper communication
  • Unsecured scaffolding
  • Unmarked holes, openings or drops
  • Failure to use visible warning signs
  • Lack of railings or guardrail systems
  • Failure to institute a safety-monitoring system

Premises liability claims can be pursued against a general contractor, subcontractor or other worksite company.
