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 keep their walking areas well-maintained. That’s when people get hurt.
At Edwards & Kautz, our attorneys are committed to providing justice for Kentucky residents who have been injured on someone else’s property.
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 lost wages and medical bills from an injury caused by someone else’s negligence. We 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.
