At Ipson Law, we treat slip and fall accidents seriously, and we firmly believe that property owners should make sure to protect their visitors and guests from harm to the best of their ability.

Frequently Asked Questions
For most of our clients, the decision to pursue a slip and fall claim is the first experience they’ve had with filing a lawsuit. It is normal to be unsure of the legal process, and what you may be owed for your claim, so we have provided the answers to some frequently asked questions below. If you have questions about your specific claim, contact us directly at 801-332-9655 today.
What type of warnings do property owners need to provide?
The owner of private property or a commercial property should warn guests of any known hazards that might cause you harm. An excellent example of this is putting up a “Caution: Wet Floor” sign in an area where liquid was spilled. Construction supervisors must warn the public of dangers near construction sites, and if they fail to inform you of hazards, the company may be held liable for any accidents that occur. Simply putting up warning signs may not be enough to deny liability, however, so it is essential to consult an experienced premises liability attorney if you are hurt in an accident on a private or commercial property.
What should I do immediately after a slip, trip, or fall accident?
You should immediately seek medical attention if you are hurt in an accident on someone’s property. You should also get the names and contact information for owners and managers, and avoid making any statements that would indicate guilt, even if you are embarrassed in the immediate aftermath of the accident. It is a good idea to take pictures of the property where the accident occurred, and save any clothing and shoes you were wearing at the time of the accident. All of this information will be vital to your case if you need to file a slip and fall injury claim.
