North Carolina Slip and Fall Lawyers Helping Accident Victims 

Slip and fall accidents are the most common type of premises liability claim. Injuries from slips, trips and falls in buildings, on sidewalks, and in parking lots can require months of medical treatment and recovery, and leave you unable to work or take care of your family. If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident, the North Carolina slip and fall lawyers at our firm can evaluate your case and help you understand your options. 

Was the Property Owner Negligent?

Property owners have an obligation to ensure their property is safe for the public, guests and visitors. In every trip and fall case, the main legal concern is whether the property owner was negligent in maintaining the property or otherwise addressing a hazardous condition. In this context, negligence can take on several forms: 

  • Failing to regularly inspect the property
  • Failing to act on reports concerning dangerous conditions
  • Failing to post warnings regarding hazardous conditions (e.g. posting a “wet floor” sign)
  • Failing to provide adequate management and supervision of the property

The general rule is that a property owner may be held liable if they knew or should have known that there was an issue on their property that they could reasonably foresee would lead to injury. As a result, they may not be responsible for your injury if they did not know about the hazard or did not have time to take action to address it. 

Our North Carolina Slip and Fall Lawyers Explain Common Causes of Accidents

A slip and fall can happen in almost any situation, but the majority of slip and fall personal injury cases occur due to the following:

  • Broken or lose steps
  • Loose or missing handrails
  • Icy parking lots and sidewalks
  • Poor lighting
  • Broken tiles
  • Loose, wrinkled, or torn carpeting
  • Cracked or uneven concrete
  • Wet or slippery floors

Any hazard that causes you to trip or slip and result in injury may result in liability for the property owner. An experienced North Carolina slip and fall lawyer can evaluate the facts of your case and determine whether you may have a claim for compensation.

Slip and Fall Accidents Can Result in Serious Injuries

Trip and fall accidents are often much more serious than people realize. Depending on where and how you fell, these accidents can result in the following injuries:

  • Concussions and head trauma
  • Facial fractures and broken teeth
  • Torn ligaments and tendons
  • Broken bones
  • Severe lacerations

These injuries can require extensive medical treatment, months of physical therapy, and leave you and your family with significant medical bills. In addition, you may not be able to work or be forced to take time off, further compounding the challenges you face.
