Falls as a Leading Cause of Injury and Death

Did you known that falls are the second leading cause of accidental injury and death? The hazards associated with unsafe walking surfaces are well-known to the retail, commercial, and hospitality industry.

A store or other commercial establishment can be liable for injuries a patron suffers as a result of a slip and fall. Generally, a store or other commercial establishment has a duty to keep its premises in a reasonably safe condition. If a store or commercial establishment does not keep its premises in a reasonably safe condition and fails to provide proper warnings,it may be liable under the law for damages. If you fall while at a store or commercial establishment and suffer injuries, you may be entitled to recover your medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering, among other damages.

A building code violation is often present in these situations, such as stairs which are uneven, have a rise and run which is not in compliance with the building code, or which have no handrails. Sometimes, the flooring surface is too slick or has a substance on it which makes it dangerous. If you’ve fallen while shopping or doing business with a commercial establishment and suffered injuries, call Caldwell Law Group, PLLC, now to learn about the rights you may have.
