Slip/Trip & Fall Attorney in Brockton

Over 80 Years of Collective Legal Experience On Your Side: (508) 966-7254

When a surface is uneven, slippery, broken, or poorly secured, it is very likely that you or someone you love could be injured. Slip and fall and trip and fall incidents can occur anywhere, but are far more likely in areas where safety rules are disregarded or property is poorly maintained. This is especially true when ice and snow are not properly removed after a storm. When a hazard is not repaired the unsuspecting passerby or visitor could be seriously injured as a result.

If you were injured in a slip/trip and fall accident that occurred in a restaurant, shop, parking lot, apartment building, on another person’s property or on a property you rent, our firm may be able to help you seek compensation for your injuries.

Types of Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall Cases

There are many ways in which a slip and fall or trip and fall accident may occur. If someone mops the floor in a shop but fails to put out an adequate warning, shop visitors may slip and injure their heads, break bones, or suffer other serious harm. Slip and fall incidents might also occur if ice or snow is left on steps or where the property manager fails to maintain a safe environment for visitors. Loose wires, uneven floorboards, and unstable flooring and ceilings are a few common causes of trip and fall accidents.

Most slip and fall and trip and fall accidents fall under premises liability, which means the property owner or manager is liable for the damage. Property owners are responsible for maintaining their property for visitors, removing hazards and providing warnings where any potential dangers may occur. For example, if there is an icy walkway it should be cleared as soon as possible after the storm ends. If someone is injured by slipping on the ice, the property owner could be liable.

What Should You Do Next?

If you were injured in a slip and fall injury, make sure you know what to do next.

Immediately after you were injured, make sure you take the following steps:

  • Do not make any detailed statements about the fault of the incident
  • Discover the names and contact information of the property owner or manager where you were injured
  • Take down contact information from any witnesses
  • Seek medical attention (even if you think your injuries are minor)
  • Inform the property owner of the accident

Make sure you write down everything you can remember about the incident while it is still fresh on your mind. Were you offered assistance? What do you think caused your fall? Write down anything and everything. Also, make sure you preserve your footwear and clothing you were wearing when the incident occurred.
