When is the last time you slipped and fell? Like all accidents, slip-and-fall accidents happen in only a few seconds, but their repercussions can last for a long time. Sometimes the worst that happens is that the person who fell ends up with a few bruises, but some people (especially elderly individuals) can experience significant injuries when they slip and fall.

Commercial property owners have a legal responsibility of creating a safe, hazard-free environment for their customers. By failing to create a safe environment and/or failing to warn customers of potential dangers (such as neglecting to display a “Caution: Wet Floor” sign) puts innocent people at risk. If you or someone you know is injured while on commercial property, you may have a right to financial compensation for your injuries.
Premises liability claims can be convoluted and complex, with potentially multiple parties involved. If you are injured on commercial property, you may be able to seek financial compensation from the property owner, the management company, and the tenants (to name a few).
