Slip-and-fall accidents aren't funny -- they're dangerous

Suffering an injury through no fault of one's own is devastating. It can feel even bleaker when the accident could have been avoided by a simple action, such as cleaning up a spill or replacing a burned out lightbulb. 

Slippery floors are a well-known cause of slip-and-fall accidents. However, there are many other potential dangers for serious injury, including torn carpets, inadequate lighting, cracked sidewalks, and icy paths. Consider the following information when dealing with injuries caused by property owners who ignored these and other responsibilities. 

Victims who suffer injuries as a result of unsafe conditions can seek compensation, even if their injuries are minor, but they must prove the fault of the property owner and that he or she knew -- or should have known -- about the danger. For example, a successful lawsuit might allege that the owner knowingly created a dangerous condition but failed to fix it or,  alternatively, that the owner should have known about the condition because of how long it had been there.

Slip-and-fall accidents are often joked about in sitcoms. In reality, they are dangerous situations in which many people are injured each and every year. Recovering from a slip-and-fall accident can take time and, unfortunately, money. Paying medical bills and attending to one's health may not be as difficult for those who successfully navigate personal injury claims against negligent property owners.
