Slip and fall

Slip and fall accidents can result from many different scenarios, be it wet floors, poorly lit stairwells, a crack in the pavement, missing stair steps, freshly waxed floors, and the list goes on and on. 

Property owners are responsible and obligated to exercise reasonable care to assure that their property is kept hazard-free, both inside and outside.  Therefore, a slip and fall may occur because of the negligence of the property owner in maintaining and inspecting their property grounds. 

Following a slip and fall accident, there are a few steps that one should take to ensure that financial damages can be recovered for your injuries:

  1. Seek medical attention for your injuries.

  2. when possible, take photographs of the scene and the conditions which led to  your accident.

  3. Make sure the property owner knows what has occured.

  4. collect contact information of any witnesses and a written statement, if possible.

  5. Contact the Kinard Law office as soon as possible.
