Causes of Slip, Trip, and Fall Injuries
Slip, trip, and fall injuries can occur for a variety of reasons. Even if you think you fell for no good reason at all, and that the accident resulted from your own carelessness or clumsiness, there may have been a hazardous condition that prompted it of which you were simply unaware. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, our job is to investigate our clients’ injuries and determine the real reasons why the accident happened. That enables us to identify the responsible party or parties and pursue them for compensation.
Some of the most common reasons for slip and fall injuries include the following:
- Wet floors
- Loose stairs
- Missing stairs
- Loose or missing handrails
- Unmarked floor obstacles
- Uneven or cracked flooring or pavement
- Poor lighting
When you sit down with us for a free initial case evaluation, we will discuss your injury in detail, and we will let you know who we believe was responsible and how much compensation you might be eligible to receive. Our slip, trip, and fall lawyers serving Bancroft will go over what you can expect in the days and weeks ahead. To get started today by speaking with a member of our staff, call 1-800-JUSTICE.

The Responsible Party or Parties
No matter what you may believe about your slip, trip, or fall injury, or what you might have been told, there is a very good chance that someone other than yourself—and perhaps more than one party—is negligent and financially liable for your injuries. The most common responsible parties for slip, trip, and fall injuries include the following:
The Property Owner
Property owners in Bancroft have a duty of care to keep their premises safe and free of hazardous conditions. If a dangerous situation arises on the property, the owner must address it promptly; in the meantime, they must take steps to protect guests from it, such as putting up warning signs and erecting physical barriers.
The Property Manager
If the location where you slipped, tripped, or fell has a property manager, that individual or company has a duty of care similar to the property owner. We can hold them liable for failing to address a dangerous condition or to warn you of it.
We can hold builders responsible when a building or structure has a structural or foundational defect that leads to a slip, trip, or fall injury.
How We Prove Liability
Preszler Injury Lawyers can help you win compensation by proving that the other party or parties are financially liable for your slip, trip, or fall injury. We do this by demonstrating three things:
The Property Contained a Dangerous Condition
We will show evidence of a specific condition on the property, such as a pothole or big crack in the pavement, that was dangerous and to which you should not have been subjected.
The Property Owner or Manager Was Aware of the Condition
We will also gather evidence to demonstrate that the owner or manager of the property was fully aware of the condition, learning about it long before you suffered an injury because of it.
The Owner or Manager Failed to Protect You From the Situation
Lastly, we will prove that the steps that were taken by the owner or manager to protect you from the situation, if any, were inadequate to prevent your injury.
