Slip and Fall Accidents

New Hampshire & Maine Personal Injury Lawyers

Slip and fall accidents are among the most prevalent types of personal injury claims filed on the basis of premises liability law. While slips and falls may not seem that significant accidents, individuals who slip and fall on another's property can experience serious physical injuries that can greatly impact all areas of their life.

Premises owners are ultimately and legally responsible for providing safe and healthy conditions free from preventable harm. This means that when invitees slip or fall as the result of a premises owner's negligence, carelessness or failure to provide safe conditions, they have the right to pursue legal recourse that will hold owners and their insurers liable for compensating them for the damages they suffered. Some of the following conditions associated with slip and fall accidents can result in premises owner liability:

  • Insufficient lighting
  • Unsafe, uneven, or crumbling floors, stairs and walkways
  • Wet or slippery floors
  • Open holes or gaps
  • Lack of warnings, signs, or notifications about potential hazards

In order to establish liability in slip and fall cases, attorneys must be able to clearly and conclusively prove that premises' owners, managers or others in an authoritative role knew or should have known about the conditions of their property and the potential dangers they posed to visitors and guests. When a claim is able to highlight this negligence or wrongful act, injured victims can recover compensation for their past and future medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages resulting from their inability to work.
