Slips and Falls

Slips, trips and falls can be caused by a variety of defective conditions on a property, including snow, ice, potholes, spills, debris, wheel stops, or other unfortunate mishaps. Due to human physiology and the physical mechanics of a fall, slips and trips can result in surprisingly serious injuries.

Legal liability for slips, trips and falls is determined under an area of law known as premise liability law, which imposes a duty on landowners and possessors to maintain their properties in a safe condition, and to warn people entering onto the property of dangerous or defective conditions.

The personal injury lawyers at Cooley and Handy are experienced in handling premise liability lawsuits involving injures caused by slips and falls, as well as other causes, including physical or sexual assault, which are also covered under premise liability law.
