Slip & Fall Accidents in Oregon
Slip and fall accidents often happen when a person encounters poorly maintained buildings and property. Clients may get injured falling on handicapped parking lots, poolside, walkways, ramps, wet, icy, or slick surfaces, stairs that are missing handrails, at the grocery store, restaurants, or on a property littered with debris and other tripping hazards.
Private property owners must warn others about potential hazards on the premises. It is the owner’s responsibility to keep their property reasonably safe from dangers, debris, and other conditions and objects that can cause someone to fall and get hurt. Customers, guests, and other visitors to a person’s property should be able to assume that a property is safe from slip and fall dangers.
Common Injuries in Slip & Fall Accidents
