Holding Property Owners Accountable
A clumsy moment is often easy to dismiss. After a fall, you may be more concerned about dusting yourself off than thinking about whether the property owner could have prevented your injury by taking proper care of the scene. However, when a property owner does not take proper care of their facility, it can cause injuries that leave you unable to work or complete your normal activities.
The Law Office of Jordan K. Van Matre, P.C., offers legal support for personal injury cases like slips, trips and falls. Attorney Van Matre understands the frustration that comes with injuries from slips and falls and can help you seek compensation.
Maintaining A Safe Space
When business owners open their space to the public, they have a duty to maintain a safe environment. Part of operating their company is ensuring that the premises are free from dangers, such as:
- Wet floors
- Falling products
- Loose rugs or mats
- Messy walking areas
- Uneven pavement
It can often seem clumsiness is to blame for a slip or fall. However, when there are hazards that cause the fall, it is important to hold business owners responsible. In some cases, even minor injuries can get worse in the days after an accident, so it is critical to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
