Slip and Fall Accidents
You have a right to expect reasonably safe premises when you visit a property as a customer, client or guest. Slip and Fall Accidents account for over 8 million hospital emergency room visits in a typical year. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, floors and flooring materials contribute directly to more than 2 million fall injuries each year. Owners, managers or occupants have a legal obligation to make sure they are in compliance, and if you are seriously injured because of dangerous conditions, the owners of the property may be held responsible and should help you get fair compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other costs related to the accident.
Slip and fall cases have been proven to be a complex area of the law. Thorough investigation of the details is critical and facts that may seem marginal. Finding out the length of time a puddle has been on the floor before an accident occurred, or if the victim was alerted to the danger, can make a huge impact as we expertly begin to build your case.
The owner or manager has responsibility of the property to make sure it is reasonably safe for the people who use it; and this is referred as Premises liability.
Slip and fall accidents that take place somewhere other than work usually fall into the category of legal cases called premises liability.
In order for you to be awarded compensation in a slip and fall case, the property owner must have been negligent and the injuries you sustained must be directly related to the owner’s negligence. Slip and fall cases can often require extensive legal knowledge to establish who should be held responsible. It is imperative that you work with attorneys that have extensive experience in this area of law in order for you to get the best result for your case.
