Slip and fall injuries occur when someone falls and is hurt because of a dangerous condition on another person’s or business’ property. A slip and fall is considered a “personal injury.” Personal injury law deals with harm suffered by people due to the carelessness or negligence of another party. These types of injuries can be caused directly or indirectly by the dangerous condition.

One example of a direct cause of such injury is a liquid spilled on a floor that causes someone to slip and be hurt. In shops, restaurants, or other places of business, our attention is drawn to shelves where merchandise is stored and not always the floor where we are walking. Other examples of injury resulting from a direct cause include substances, materials, objects, or obstructions that affect a victim’s ability to walk safely. Examples of this include ice, sticky substances, cracked or uneven walkways, or merchandise left in someone’s path.

Indirect causes of slip and fall injuries are conditions that the environment that play a role in someone’s slip and fall injury. Examples of this include walkways with inadequate lighting, and handrails that are broken or missing. If you need to contact a slip and fall attorney in San Antonio, call Vela Firm, PLLC now.
