Slip-And-Falls Can Happen Anywhere In Seattle
The Pacific Northwest is famous for its rainy climate, and Seattle is no different. The rain can make for slippery conditions, leading to slip-and-fall accidents. But slip-and-falls can happen under several other conditions, too — including the negligence of a property owner or another party.
Anyone who suffers a slip-and-fall injury due to someone else’s neglect should not have to pay for expensive hospital stays, medical care and other costs. At Elk & Elk, we represent clients throughout Washington and fight to recover compensation following accidents like slip-and-falls. In our 50 years of experience, we have helped thousands of clients recover financial compensation for their injuries.
What Are Some Common Conditions For Slip-And-Falls?
Slip-and-fall accidents are frightening because they can happen anywhere. Although children and the elderly are more susceptible to these accidents, they can happen to anyone. The most common hazards that lead to slip-and-falls include:
- Poorly maintained grounds
- Uneven surfaces and no warning signage
- Wet or slippery floors
- Uneven staircases
- Potholes or cracks in asphalt or cement
- Loose floorboards
Many people brush off their sip-and-fall, believing that the accident was their fault. But if any of the above conditions caused you to slip and fall or trip and fall, the other party may be at fault — not you.
More Than $1 Billion Recovered
Proving liability in a slip-and-fall case requires demonstrating that the property owner caused the dangerous conditions or should have known about them and did not take actions to prevent or fix them. Elk & Elk has proven liability in numerous cases, recovering over $1 billion in settlements and verdicts for our clients.
