Slip-And-Fall Accidents

Dangerous Property Is A Liability

When you enter another person's property, whether it is a store or a private residence, you assume that you will be able to safely move about. But property owners don't always maintain their premises in a safe manner. When they fail in their duty to keep their property safe, people get injured. At Edwards & Kautz in Kentucky, our attorneys are committed to providing justice for those who have been injured on someone else's property in a slip-and-fall accident.

Hazards That Can Lead To A Fall

While not all slip-and-fall accidents are the same, there are some common hazards that can make a fall more likely. Some of the dangerous conditions that can precipitate a fall can include:

  • Unattended spills in a store
  • Unsecured area rugs
  • Accumulated snow and ice
  • Uneven or broken stairs

You shouldn't have to pay for injuries and lost wages because of an injury caused by someone else's negligence. We take these claims seriously and work diligently to secure maximum compensation to pay for medical bills and other expenses.

Potentially Serious Injuries

A slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident can be extremely serious or even fatal depending on the circumstances. If you hit your head on ice or another hard surface, you could suffer a concussion or a more serious traumatic brain injury. Reaching out with your hands to catch your fall could mean you end up with two broken wrists. Older people who fall can break a hip, which in some cases leads quickly to a downward spiral in health. A fall is nothing to laugh at. We're here for you and prepared to hold negligent parties accountable.
