Property owners have an obligation to keep their property “reasonably” safe. Whether it’s a public pool, grocery store or personal property, the owners must take the proper precautions to eliminate dangerous areas or obstacles and have appropriate signs indicating the potential for injury. Slip and fall accidents can cause irreversible injuries, especially for pregnant women in the second or third trimester.
Pregnancy causes a woman’s center of gravity to shift as the baby continues to grow. Many women experience falls during pregnancy, but sometimes these falls are the direct result of property owner negligence and can lead to the death of the fetus. Auto accidents and slip and fall incidents are some of the most common causes of trauma-related miscarriages.
The first step you should take after a miscarriage due to a slip and fall accident is to call our experienced lawyer. These cases require extensive research and proof in order to reach the best outcome possible. We can file your claim, gather evidence and hold those at fault responsible.
Slip and fall accidents can be caused by a number of factors including:
- Wet or uneven surfaces
- Uneven walkways or staircases
- Defective sidewalks
- Cluttered, waxed or wet floors
- Weather conditions
