While it may sound like a slapstick comedy, Slip and Fall accidents are deathly serious, and are second only to automobile incidents as a leading cause of accidental deaths in the U.S. Each day people fall down due to a slip or a trip. If you are injured by a slip, trip, or fall, the Utah Slip and Fall Attorneys at the Salt Lake Law Office of Handy and Handy may be able to help you with your claim. Bumps or holes in the sidewalk, poorly aligned curbs, lack of lighting, food and drink on the floor of supermarkets or restaurants, and many other avoidable conditions can bring people down to the ground. Unfortunately, sometimes these falls can cause very serious injuries.
In Utah, snow and ice can cause dangerous conditions when businesses do not take adequate care to keep their customers and employees safe. Snowy and Icy sidewalks, as well as wet floors due to snow melting off of people's shoes and clothing, are hazards that are very dangerous, and present in Utah several months out of the year. Property owners, occupiers, and businesses have a duty to keep you safe from these hazards, which they know or should know exist, when you are legally and lawfully on their property.
If you were injured due to a slip and fall, trip and fall, or other hazard at a place of business, or on someone else's property, you may be entitled to compensation for your injury.
