Compensation may cover medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and rehabilitation costs. It can vary based on the severity of injuries and circumstances of the accident.

What are some common conditions resulting in a slip-and-fall claim?

Examples of dangerous places and conditions include uneven surfaces, icy sidewalks, poor lighting and inadequate signage for hazards. Common locations for falls include stairs, areas prone to wetness or spills, ladders, unstable work areas and parking lots. Many injuries occur because of poor or improper snow removal leading to black ice being negligently left behind. Melting ice and snow tracked in and left in entryways of buildings also contribute to hazardous conditions and, sometimes, fall injuries.
