Danville Slip and Fall Attorneys
It is the responsibility of property owners to protect their guests, patrons, and visitors from unnecessary harm. This often means that the owner or manager of a property should take precautions to protect his or her guests by removing hazards and maintaining the property. Failure to do so may result in serious accidents that can have a lasting effect on a person’s health and well-being.
While not every slip and fall accident may merit legal action, persons who have suffered serious injuries may be eligible for compensation for their pain, suffering, medical expenses, and other damages. If you have been the victim of an accident caused by the reckless or negligent actions of a property owner, contact the Danville slip and fall lawyers of Spiros Law, P.C. at (217) 443-4343 to discuss your claim.
Causes of Slip-and-Fall Accidents
Slip-and-fall accidents may be caused by:
- Objects or debris in high-traffic areas
- Excessive moisture or water in pedestrian areas
- Poorly designed walkways
- Structural defects
- Defective design of structures
- Exposed wires, cables, or extension cords in walkways
- Lack of carpeting, rugs, or mats in slippery or wet areas
- Ice or snow on ramps, stairs, porches, and other areas
If a property owner fails to address hazardous areas on his or her property and someone is injured as a result, a judge or jury may decide that the owner is responsible for injuries and damage caused in a slip-and-fall accident. If you are interested in pursuing such a claim, a Danville slip and fall attorney can help you research your options.
