Slip and Fall

HudsonLawGroup > Personal Injury > Slip and Fall

In the United States, all accidents that occur indoors or in the surrounding area are the responsibility of the owners or general managers.

A person can bring the owners to justice. It requires the help of a lawyer. 

Very often, older adults suffer from falls. The most common injuries are hip fractures, concussions, head bruises, leg and arm fractures, and ligament ruptures.

There are also particular circumstances. The owner is not always to blame. He also has the right to hire a lawyer and prove that he did everything on the territory of his property to make it safe for people. But the person himself is to blame for the fact that he was injured. For example, he was intoxicated and performed actions unsafe for his health.

If the owner knew about the existing danger but did not do anything to eliminate it, he will be criminally liable.
