Falls on Walkways in Indiana

Representing Clients Injured on Walkways Due to Negligence

Not only are property owners responsible for maintaining their building or home and repairing any dangerous conditions that customers and guests can suffer indoors, but they must also ensure other areas of the premises are safe, including parking lots, sidewalks, and stairways. If you slip and fall on one of those areas, you may be able to hold the property owner liable for your injuries.

At McKibben Shaw Law, we can determine whether or not the property owner failed to properly maintain the premises or fix any issues that may lead to injuries. Furthermore, perhaps a municipality like the city or county can be responsible for injuries from public sidewalks. We will explore all avenues to determine liability and increase your chances of obtaining your entitled compensation.

Common Types of Walkways Causing Slip & Fall Accidents

Like all slip and fall cases, an injured party must prove that the property owner was negligent. Just because you slipped and fell on another person’s property, does not mean the property owner was negligent. You must show that the walkway was in an unreasonably hazardous condition and the owner knew or reasonably should have known about the walkway’s unsafe condition.

Our firm handles the following types of slip and fall cases involving walkways:

  • Falls in parking lots and sidewalks – As we mentioned before, property owners and managers are responsible for the interior and exterior of their premises. When a pothole exists in the parking lot or on the sidewalk, the owner must repair the issue or warn patrons and visitors of its potential dangers. Even if the property owner did not cause the pothole or crack in the pavement, they are required to take certain steps to protect others from harm.
  • Falls on stairs – One of the most common types of slip and fall accidents in Indiana is falling down flights of stairs. Stairs can become slippery when wet, which is why it is standard to ensure they are slip-resistant. Common causes of falls on stairs also include damaged or weak guardrails and steps.
  • Falls or trips on uneven surfaces – Uneven pavement trips and falls generally cause people to fall forward, rather than backward like slips and falls on icy or wet surfaces. Common types of injuries include broken arms, shoulders, and writs due to attempting to break a fall with hands. In some cases, falls or trips on uneven surfaces can lead to serious head injuries.
