Everyday, many are injured as a result of a fall. In cases where a substance or an uneven surface creates a “dangerous condition” a property owner or manager can be held liable for the resulting injuries.
However, a less obvious cause of a fall can be easily missed. Examples of less obvious causes such injury causing accidents are: missing railing around a stairwell, missing friction strips on exterior steps, inadequate lighting, or other building code violations.
If any of the aforementioned defects result in a person losing balance and falling, the property owner, manager or the business operator maybe sued for personal injuries. After a fall, back injuries, spinal injuries, knee injuries, broken bones, head trauma, or wrist injuries are common.
