Raleigh Slip-And-Fall Lawyers

Some of the most common injuries are slip and falls. They are just what they sound like. You are on someone else's premises, and something happens that could have been prevented:

  • You slip in a puddle in a store aisle.
  • You trip on a piece of torn carpet in a retail shop.
  • A railing gives way and you go over.
  • Your child is lacerated by jagged metal on a playground slide.
  • You hit a patch of ice on the sidewalk.
  • A toxic chemical causes burns or sickness.
  • A dark stairway causes you to stumble.
  • A parking ramp is unmonitored, and you are attacked.

The injuries that arise from slip and falls can be of almost any type. We have obtained compensation for injuries as serious as paralysis, multiple broken bones, traumatic brain injury and severe burns. In some cases, the result of the injury is death of a caregiver, breadwinner or beloved child.

Slip and falls, or trip and falls, come under a legal concept called premises liability. This principle holds that the owners of a property are obligated to take reasonable measures to ensure your safety. When they fail to do this, they can be held accountable.

Cases Involving Dangerous High-Stacking

Slip-and-fall accidents are not the only risks shoppers face. Some retail stores have displays or merchandise stacked in unstable, dangerous manners. These precarious arrangements are apt to fall on unsuspecting shoppers who can suffer serious injuries.
