Common Causes of Premises Liability Accidents in Louisville

Some of the most frequently experienced types of premises liability injuries are slips and fall accidents. Usually, the property owner has failed in some way to maintain the property, resulting in common causes for slips and falls.

  • Uneven footpaths and sidewalks. Uneven walkways can cause you to trip and fall, while holes often cause ankle injuries due to severe twisting movements.
  • Slippery footpaths and parking lots. When owners fail to clear their property of snow and ice, visitors often slip and fall.
  • Slippery floors. If people track snow and ice inside, or if water spills, interior floors can become slippery and lead to falls.
  • Uneven or unsafe staircases. Staircases with uneven or missing treads can cause falls, while missing railings contribute to falls.
  • Debris on walkways. If debris clutters walkways or footpaths, visitors can trip and fall.

An attorney can investigate the accident and help you determine what caused it. In the event that a property owner’s negligence led directly to your accident and caused you injury, you may have sufficient evidence for a personal injury lawsuit due to premises liability. Your attorney can help you name the defendant, file the proper paperwork, and prove the property owner’s negligence.
