Common causes of trip and fall accidents

A trip and fall injury can stem from an endless number of potential hazards. However, some are more likely to cause an accident than others. When the property owner fails to address them, they can be held liable. Some of the most common issues are:

  • Uneven surfaces
  • Broken stairs or handrails
  • Wet or icy pavement
  • Poor lighting
  • Ripped, bunched, or loose carpet
  • Spilled food or drinks
  • Potholes or other hidden hazards
  • Loose debris

When it comes to an injury lawsuit, it makes no difference what your relationship is with the property owner. It is possible to bring suit against a landowner even if they are your friend or family member. As a guest, they owe you a duty to keep you safe. In most cases, they will have an insurance company they can rely on for coverage.

The deadline to file a trip and fall claim

When a trip and fall lawyer takes on a new client, they should move quickly to begin the claims process. According to the law, you have two years from the date of your accident to proceed with legal action. However, the deadline to file a lawsuit against a municipality is much shorter.

To protect your legal rights, speak with a trip and fall lawyer right away.
