Ogden Slip & Fall Accident Attorneys
Helping You Up After a Painful Slip & Fall
Property owners need to keep their properties reasonably clear of hazards
that could cause a visitor to slip or trip and fall. Yet countless people
across the country are hurt in slip and fall accidents every year. All
it takes for a slip and fall hazard to become dangerous is a little bit
of negligence, so property owners often overlook the importance of keeping
their properties well maintained.

Common Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere that negligence has allowed
a property to become poorly maintained. Don’t think that just because
your slip and fall accident was unique that a claim is not worth pursuing,
either. Tell our team how you fell, and we can help investigate the accident
and determine if the hazard was severe enough to warrant a claim or lawsuit.
We can help clients who have slipped or tripped on:
- Slippery floors
- Lifted carpets
- Cracked pavement
- Dark lighting
- Missing handrails
- Loose cables or wires
By determining the cause of your fall, we can also determine liability
for it. We will want to show that the cause of your fall was an open and
obvious hazard, which means you did not have to go to unusual lengths
to reach the hazard and that it was clear enough that the property owner
should have addressed it.
Can You Sue If You Slipped & Wet Floor Signs Were Out?
Many store owners try to counter slip and fall accident claims by saying
that they had placed wet floor signs near the place of a claimant’s
injury. Does this defense tactic work? Not always.
While placing a wet floor sign near a spill or slippery floor does help
make customers aware of the danger, it is often not enough to protect
them. Proprietors need to ensure the signs are noticeable before the hazard
can be encountered. Additional steps should also be taken when reasonable,
like cordoning off the area and instructing an employee to stand nearby
and warn guests until the hazard is completely fixed.
