Premises Liability Claims in Burlington, Fairfield, Washington, Ottumwa, & Mt. Pleasant
Slip and fall is a term used for premises liability cases which occur when a person slips and falls as a result of a hazardous condition. Falling on a slippery wet floor at a grocery store or other business would be an example. If you have been injured on public property or after you have been invited onto someone's personal property, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.
Property owners have a responsibility to upkeep their property and when they fail, they should be held responsible. At Cornell Law, we work with clients from all over Burlington, Fairfield, Washington, Ottumwa, and Mt. Pleasant, holding negligent property owners financially and legally responsible.

Common Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents
After you have slipped and fallen, you may think that it is a cut and dry case. Sadly, many property owners, especially large businesses, try to undermine the accident, saying that you weren't hurt very badly or even that the accident was not their fault. We work to gather evidence and use our knowledge of personal injury and comparative negligence law to illustrate that they were negligent.
There are many causes of slip and fall accidents, including:
- Structural defects
- Uneven steps
- Parking lot defects
- Broken handrails
- Slippery floors
- Broken tiles
- Torn carpets
- Icy walkways
- Slippery spots
