Slip and Fall

Charlotte Slip & Fall Lawyers

Serving Injured Individuals Since 1983

If you were injured after slipping, tripping, or falling due to dangerous conditions on someone else’s property, you may have grounds for a premises liability claim. Property owners have a duty to provide reasonably safe spaces for guests, customers, visitors, and others who lawfully enter their properties; failing to repair or address conditions that could cause someone harm may constitute property owner negligence.

The Charlotte slip and fall lawyers at Charles G. Monnett III & Associates can help you seek fair compensation for your injuries. Since 1983, we have been representing people in complex personal injury and wrongful death cases; we know how the system works and we know how to fight for the maximum recovery you are owed. Here, we treat our clients not as case numbers but as real people with real injuries and real challenges. We understand what you are going through, and we are ready to advocate tirelessly for you.

When Is a Property Owner Liable for a Slip & Fall Accident?

While some accidents are truly unavoidable, many slip and falls can—and should—be prevented. If a slip and fall accident occurs as a result of a dangerous property condition that the property owner (or another responsible party) knew of or should have known of but failed to address, the injured individual may seek compensation for his or her damages.

So, what are “dangerous property conditions?” Some examples include:

  • Spilled liquids/merchandise
  • Accumulated snow/ice
  • Cluttered walkways
  • Uneven flooring
  • Torn/ripped carpeting
  • Defective sidewalks
  • Unmarked hazards (such as holes, puddles, wet floors, etc.)
  • Unsafe or defective stairs
  • Lack of hand rails
  • Improper signage

These and other dangerous conditions can lead to serious slip and fall accidents. If you were injured as a result of a dangerous property condition, you may have grounds for a premises liability case.

Common Slip & Fall Injuries

While some slip, trip, and fall accidents result in relatively minor injuries, others can lead to severe, life-altering injuries, some of which may even be fatal.

Some fairly common slip and fall injuries include:

These catastrophic injuries typically require extensive medical attention and ongoing treatment. Victims will likely lose income as they take time off work to heal. In extreme cases, slip and fall injuries can be partially or totally disabling, rendering victims unable to return to work at all.
