Construction Accidents
Slip and fall accidents can be embarrassing and humiliating. They can also result in serious injury. Statistics show that slip and falls cause 15% of all accidental deaths each year making these types of accidents the 2nd leading cause of deaths behind motor vehicles. Most people do not take into account the severe injuries that can result from a hard fall. Yet, falls account for more than 8 million emergency room visits every year. Out of this number, over one million visits are slip and fall accidents.
If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, you may be both humiliated and severely injured. It is a commonly accepted fact that slip and fall accidents can result in severe injuries that include broken bones and head injuries. There are an endless variety of locations where this type of accident could occur. It is impossible to predict when an accident will happen. There are, however, certain legal requirements that have been specifically created to reduce the number of slip and fall accidents.
Property owners have a legal responsibility to ensure that their property is kept reasonably safe for visitors. While a property owner cannot be held responsible to immediately pick up or remove every hazardous substance, they can be held responsible for things that an ordinary person should expect to see and timely clean up. That is why it is important to investigate the real cause of slip and fall accidents and determine who is to blame.
With the help of David McQuade Leibowitz, you can determine whether or not the owners of the property where you were injured were negligent in not keeping their property safe. In some cases, if the property owner did not abide by the requirements set forth by premises liability law, they can be held accountable for the injuries caused through a premises liability claim.
In order to file a premises liability claim, one of the following scenarios must be true:
1) The property owner or an employee must have known about the dangerous surface, but did not do anything about it.
2) The owner of the premises or an employee must have caused the slippery or dangerous surface or item to be underfoot.
3) The owner of the premises or an employee should have known about the dangerous surface because a “reasonable” person taking care of their property would have noticed or would have replaced it or cleaned it up.
The most common locations for slip and fall accidents to occur include:
Grocery/department stores

Parking structures

Private business/residential property

No matter where you have been injured, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages.
Under premises liability law, the owner of the property where your accident took place may be at fault for your injuries. It may be difficult to prove fault in a slip and fall or trip and fall accident, but David McQuade Leibowitz is prepared to closely examine all evidence to develop a strong case.
