Trusted Representation for Slip & Fall Cases
If you slipped or tripped on someone else’s property and were injured as a result, you may file a claim to seek compensation for your injuries. Slip and fall cases are usually included in the broader category of premises liability, and the property owner and/or management company may be held responsible for your accident. Whether a wet floor, narrow staircase, changes in flooring, poor lighting, torn carpeting, or other dangerous conditions caused your fall, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries.
The Property Owner or Possessor May Be Held Responsible for Various Situations, Including:
- If he or she created the dangerous condition that caused the accident.
- If the dangerous condition existed for such a length of time that he or she must have discovered and corrected it prior to the accident.
- If he or she knew of the condition and negligently failed to correct it.
Proving fault in a slip and fall accident requires thorough investigation and reliance on evidence. This includes witness statements, photographs, incident reports, and other documents. In most cases, the injured plaintiff must prove that the property owner, or defendant, knew or should have known about a dangerous condition on his or her property and failed to act to prevent the accident.
