Best Slip And Fall Lawyer Tips For “Fall Prevention Awareness Month”

Did you know somebody recognizes September as “fall prevention awareness month”?  Having handled hundreds (at least) of slip and fall, trip and fall, and other premise liability personal injury cases throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts, I thought it would be fun to share 3 tips to keep us safer.  If you do suffer a personal injury, know that our team cares and we are here to help, with 24/7 free legal reviews.  

1. Slip And Fall Advice: Assess Your Surroundings

What is premises liability law? Slip and fall cases come from “unreasonably dangerous conditions” that a property owner allows on their property.  This gives way to personal injuries and your potential right to legal compensation.   

However, to minimize your risk of personal injury, you should be assessing your risk, and watching your surroundings.  In the law, defense lawyers use doctrines called “assumption of the risk” and “open and obvious” to try to blame you for your fall.

It is important for us to know our surroundings and for those who need extra assistance, to be more aware of their surroundings as well.

2. Trip And Fall Advice: Property Owners Keep Your Property Safe

If you are a homeowner or a property owner, the law places an obligation on you to keep your property free from unreasonably dangerous conditions that you “knew or should have known about.”

So you should have a system and process for inspecting, repairing, and maintaining the safety of your property.  For example, in the winter months, you must keep parking areas clear from snow and ice.

3. Rhode Island And Massachusetts Slip And Fall Law: Document The Personal Injury

Here at Bottaro Law, we are passionate about helping victims of dangerous conditions.  Whether you are injured or the property owner, everyone should document what happened and preserve evidence such as photos and videos.
