How do trip and fall accidents happen in Arkansas?
Trip and fall cases, also known as premises liability cases, may begin under any of the following situations:
- Property owner ignores safety codes
- Dangerous or narrow stairway
- Failure to guard against dangerous adjacent areas
- Negligent care of a sidewalk or publicly owned area, such as a pothole in the ground
- Poor lighting, which may lead to a negligent security injury
- Safety code violations
It takes surprisingly little force for someone, even a healthy adult, to suffer a traumatic brain injury. Similarly, a spinal cord injury can occur under circumstances that we encounter every day, such as going up or down stairs. It is not unheard of that slip and fall accidents may even lead to loss of life, which may be the precursor to a wrongful death claim.
What to do after a trip and fall accident
If you trip and fall or slip and injure yourself on someone's property, you should determine what made you fall. If anyone saw you fall, be sure you get the names and addresses of all witnesses. Try to note the conditions in the area - was the lighting poor, was there some substance that made you slip? If you did slip or trip because of something on the floor, try to obtain a sample. Also, try to get pictures of the area. Report any such accident to the manager or owner and insist that they make a record of it.
