Seemingly small hazards in offices, shops, and other buildings may appear minor, but overlooked problems like a chemical spill, cord in the hallway, or defective furniture can cause very serious injuries to unsuspecting visitors.
Property owners have a duty to make their premises safe for employees, customers, and visitors. This includes being aware of and adequately warning visitors of potentially harmful hazards whenever they are present in order to prevent slip and fall accidents. If you have been injured on someone else’s property due to an owner’s negligence, call the slip and fall lawyers at Lundy Law.

Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents can often have very serious repercussions. In fact, the National Safety Council (NSC) reports that falls are the number one cause of injury in seniors over the age of 65.
The NSC also reports that nearly 16,000 older Americans die each year from complications after a fall—that’s equal to the number of deaths that would happen if a 737 airliner crashed every single week of the year, killing everyone on board.
The slip and fall lawyers at Lundy Law are on your side. The key to winning a slip and fall claim is to prove negligence on the owner’s part. Several factors can contribute to preventable accidents, including:
- slippery floors, standing water, ice, or snow
- uneven or damaged walkways or poor maintenance
- inadequate security, including lights and surveillance that results in an assault by a third party
- unsafe construction sites, especially concerning non-workers
- unattended or unsafe pools that cause drowning
- unsecured objects falling from shelves at a store
