Owners of property have a duty to follow safety measures to ensure safe environments and walkways for patrons that enjoy their shops, services, and guests. If you slipped and fell on someone else’s property, you may be eligible to receive compensation if the slip and fall were caused by a dangerous condition or negligence conducted by the property owner, occupier, or municipality.
Slips and falls often occur due to ice, water, snow, cracks in sidewalk or flooring, improperly cleaned waste, poor lighting, or another hidden hazard. Another party may be liable for your injuries and damages. If you fall on city or government property, you may have as little as 10 days from the accident date to give notice of a claim for damages.
