Trip and fall injuries in apartments or houses are very common. If you have had a trip and fall accident at your apartment or someone else’s house, you may be able to make a legal recovery for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. However, simply because you are injured does not automatically mean you are entitled to a legal recovery. You must prove what caused you to fall and that the property owner was negligent. Here are a few examples of trip and fall cases which we have represented:
- Torn carpet
- Worn or defective stairs
- No stairway hand rails
- Rotten wood on porches
If the defect which caused you to fall is not as obvious as the examples above, contact us to discuss whether we can make you a recovery for what caused you to fall. This is not an exhaustive list and you should consult with McCready, Garcia & Leet regarding and any trip and fall. Another common condition which causes people to trip and fall are sidewalk and driveway cracks and defects. These types of cases are so common that we have written about them separately.
