We’ve all heard stories about people getting injured after slipping and falling on puddles of water in a grocery store or tripping over unsightly potholes in a parking lot – and maybe you’ve been the unfortunate victim of such circumstances yourself. Accidents happen, but when a slip and fall injury occurs on someone else’s property, carelessness or negligence is often a factor.
In these cases, it is important to know your legal rights. To determine liability for an injury related to a slip or fall, you will need to prove that someone else is legally responsible – as well as defend against claims that your own carelessness may have caused the accident. Property owners are responsible for keeping their premises in reasonably safe condition. When they fail and visitors get hurt, the property owner is liable. For example, if a grocery store fails to clean up spills or leaks promptly, they may be liable for any slip and fall accidents that result.
The primary question you’ll need to answer is whether a reasonable person would have been aware of the hazardous conditions and whether the property owner had sufficient time and opportunity to make the situation less dangerous for visitors or patrons before the accident happened. To determine liability for a slip and fall injury, the expertise of an experienced attorney is invaluable.
Recovering from an accident is hard enough without having to navigate a complex and potentially overwhelming legal landscape, especially when insurance companies are involved. Knowing your rights and having a knowledgeable attorney on your side can help ensure the best possible financial outcome for you and your family while you focus on more important things like healing, recuperating, and getting your life back to normal.
