Common Slip and Fall Accident Conditions

by | Oct 2, 2017 | Personal Injury | 0 comments

Slip and fall accidents are no laughing matter. Some people believe that individuals slip and fall purposely with the hopes of winning a significant settlement. While this may be true in isolated incidents, it is not always the case. Those who are legitimately injured in slip and fall accidents have the right to pursue fair compensation for their injuries.

Slip and fall accidents cost Americans about $15 million per year. These funds are used to cover medical bills, lost time at work, and all other accident-related damages. It is important that those injured seek out the legal counsel of an experienced Michigan slip and fall attorney.

Warm Weather Slip and Fall Accidents

Although slip and fall accidents in Michigan are commonly associated with ice and snow, the spring and summer present hazardous conditions as well. There is a correlation between warmer weather and more slip and fall accidents. This is likely because more people are out by the pool, the lake, or enjoying any other outdoor activity. The conditions these activities present make slip and fall accidents more likely.

Crowded Areas Make For More Slips

People who hang out in crowded areas are more likely to end up in a slip and fall accident. In places such as festivals and sporting events there are massive crowds of people, food and drinks flowing, and possibly even dancing depending on the event. People are commonly distracted by all of the ongoing activity and miss spilled liquids, messes, and steps. Being unaware of such conditions can easily lead to a slip or trip and fall.

Receiving Compensation in a Slip And Fall Accident

It is possible to win compensation against property owners who do not keep their properties reasonably safe. These places are required by law to keep their premises safe and free of hazards. When they fail to meet this obligation, they are considered liable in the eyes of the law.

Michigan Legal Center is here to help you secure the maximum compensation available. Property owners who act negligently need to be held responsible for their actions. Contact us today for a free consultation with a personal injury attorney to discover your legal options.
