A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere—at any time—and they are not always the accident victim’s fault. While you do your best to stay safe, some falls are unavoidable.

The attorneys at Carter Mario Law Firm know many factors can contribute to a fall—and the injuries which may follow. That is why we work diligently to identify any potential hazards that may have contributed to your accident.

What Caused Your Fall?

Property owners and managers are responsible for maintaining a safe environment for visitors. If they fail to do so, they may be considered liable—and held legally responsible—for the injuries suffered in an accident. We may be able to help if your accident was the result of:

  • Obstructed Walkways: Any item in a walking path is a potential trip hazard. Even small objects can pose a risk if placed in a walkway normally free of trip hazards.
  • Unmarked Elevation Changes: Sudden changes in elevation can cause people to lose their footing. This may cause a pedestrian to lose balance and may lead to a fall.
  • Broken Steps or Platforms: Broken, crooked steps or damaged pedestrian platforms are a serious trip hazard—and victims can suffer very severe injuries as a result.
  • Wet, Polished, or Waxed Floors: Tile, vinyl, or laminate floors become slick when they get wet from leaks or spills—as well as a new application of polish or wax.
  • Poor, Broken, or Missing Lighting: Poorly lit stairs or walkways can be trip hazards, as many normally avoidable obstacles become dangerous due to low visibility.
