Suffered a Slip-and-Fall Injury in Topeka?
Speak with Our Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer Today
If you've experienced a slip-and-fall accident on someone else's property or on public property, you may be eligible for financial compensation. Private and commercial property owners are responsible to maintain a safe environment for all visitors to their premises. City and state municipalities are responsible for the upkeep of sidewalks, roads, and buildings within their jurisdiction. When minimum safety standards are not met, the owner of the property is liable for any injury accidents that occur.
Common slip-and-fall accidents can result from:
- Wet, slippery floors
- Uneven walking surfaces
- Torn carpet
- Icy sidewalks or driveways
- Poor lighting conditions
- Missing or broken handrails
How do I know if the property owner is at fault?
Determining the cause of the slip and fall is the first step towards establishing liability. In the vast majority of cases, people do not slip and fall for no reason. Something causes them to lose their footing. According to the law, property owners are culpable for the injury if they allowed a dangerous condition to persist on their property and failed to adequately warn guests of the danger. If an injury occurred on the premises of a leased business property, both the business owner and property owner can be found liable.
