Usually, slip and fall accidents occur suddenly, leaving victims little to no time to brace themselves. As a result, these falls can be quite dangerous and may result in a wide range of serious injuries. These accidents are often the result of Austin property owners who have neglected to ensure that their premises are safe for everybody. Aside from the physical damage that a slip and fall victim must cope with following their accident, the financial impact from expensive medical bills and possible lost wages can also be substantial.
Common Slip and Fall Accidents
When a slip and fall accident occurs as the result of an Austin property owner’s negligence, the property owner may be held liable for any pain and suffering you experienced as a result of your accident. Slip and fall accidents occur most commonly as the result of the following six forms of property negligence:
- Uneven Sidewalks
- Slick flooring
- Poorly lit sidewalks
- Loose or ripped carpets
- Potholes or other damaged road- or walkway
- Obstructed walkways
This list is not exhaustive, and you should discuss our situation with our Austin legal team in order to understand the legal options you may take in your particular case.
