Mishawaka Attorneys Uphold Your Rights to Recover After Slip and Fall Accidents

Helping Hoosiers who suffer injuries on someone else’s property

People often mistakenly think slip and fall accidents only refer to injuries from simple blunders. However, almost any accident on someone else’s property can make the property owner liable for your injuries. Whether that property is private or commercial makes no difference. Whether you’ve fallen on someone’s sidewalk or in the aisle of a big-box store, Griner & Company, Attorneys at Law can help you hold the negligent party accountable for your injuries.

Our Mishawaka law firm represents accident victims in South Bend as well those in Elkhart and Marshall Counties. If you’ve been injured through no fault of your own and want to know more about damages and financial compensation, we can help.

Typical slip and fall accidents

Slip and fall accident cases fall under the umbrella of premises liability. Premises liability refers to the responsibility of property owners and landlords for accidents that occur on their property as a result of some sort of defect or hazard. To prove a claim, someone who was hurt must show that the owner or their employees were negligent, or did not exercise reasonable care in maintaining the property — and that the negligence was a substantial factor in causing the injury.

Typical slip and fall cases include:

  • Falling in a store or mall because of debris or a spill
  • Tripping on an uneven sidewalk
  • Slipping on an icy surface
  • Stumbling on a carpet
  • Falling on steps because a railing is broken or missing

Even simple falls that happen in a public space or on someone else’s private property could be eligible for financial recovery. Speak to one of our personal injury attorneys in Mishawaka to learn more about the law in your case.

Premises liability covers a variety of accidents

The responsibility of any landowner goes beyond injuries that occur when someone trips on a sidewalk or floor. All property owners, whether they own farmland, an industrial factory or an apartment building, are potentially liable for injuries that happen on their property. Sources of accidents or injuries beyond those caused by simple falls can include:

  • Burst or flooded pipes
  • Exposed or unsafe wiring
  • Hazardous machinery
  • Lack of proper warnings or safety precautions
  • Ignoring obvious structural defects
  • Exposure to chemicals and dangerous substances
  • Mildew or other contaminants
  • Open pits or jagged surface areas
  • Lack of proper lighting
  • Construction hazards

A property owner could be liable for an accident that resulted from any of these sources. However, every instance is unique, and the law surrounding each situation varies with the details of the case. If you’ve been injured on someone else’s property, our law firm can help.
