What Are Unsafe Conditions?
In order to have a valid claim after suffering a slip and fall accident, you must be able to show that a property owner’s negligence contributed to the accident and your injuries.

Some common examples of unsafe property conditions include:
- Accumulated snow or ice
- Building code violations
- Uneven floors or carpeting
- Insufficient lighting
- Inadequate security/signage
- Dangerous dogs/pets
