Hurt in a Fall on Someone Else’s Property?
NC Slip and Fall Lawyers Explain Accidents on Private Property
Slip and fall accidents can happen almost anywhere and with little warning. In some cases, these accidents may lead to traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), spinal cord injuries or wrongful death. However, many slip and falls can be prevented when property owners take precautionary measures, such as cleaning up spills or clearing hallways of clutter. In fact, North Carolina premises liability law requires property owners to take reasonable steps to protect their guests from hazards. This means that if you or a loved one suffered harm from a slip and fall accident, then you may have legal options to recover compensation. Damages from a premises liability lawsuit may help pay for hospital bills, lost income and other injury-related expenses.
