A slip and fall accident can cause serious harm. Not only could having a broken bone, head injury, fracture, sprain, or any other type of injury be painful, it can also require medical treatment that leads to hefty bills. If the accident resulted from the property owner's negligence, you shouldn’t be responsible for paying the expenses out of your own pocket. That financial liability should lie on the at-fault party. Fortunately, Delaware's personal injury laws entitle you to seek just compensation damages resulting from a slip and fall accident that was caused by someone else. To ensure you navigate this process effectively, it's crucial to have a skilled lawyer on your side.

When Can I Hold the Property Owner Responsible for a Slip and Fall?
When you're on someone else's property – whether commercial or residential – the owner is responsible for ensuring you are safe. That means if they are aware of any hazards or dangerous situations that could potentially lead to an injury-causing accident, they must take swift action to rectify it within a reasonable amount of time. If they fail to do so, they could be deemed negligent and held liable for damages you suffered because of their carelessness.
Some common causes of slip and fall accidents include:
- Slippery floor
- Damage walkways
- Broken railings
- Build-up of ice or snow
- Torn carpeting
If you slipped and fell because of a hazardous situation on someone else's property, reach out to our Delaware lawyers as soon as possible. We will review the details of your circumstances and discuss your legal options. Our team will also take inventory of the damages you sustained to determine the amount of compensation to seek from the liable party's insurance company.
How Can a Lawyer Help Me?
Although it might seem like your slip and fall case is open and close, the insurer might not see it that way. Trying to preserve their financial interests and attempting to pay out as little as possible, they will fight hard to prove that their customer was not at fault or that you were responsible.

Our Delaware slip and fall lawyers will take on every aspect of your case. From examining the facts to dealing with the insurance company and presenting your case in court should it go to trial, we will give the matter the attention it deserves.
