Slip & Fall

What is a slip and fall case?

Slip and Fall accidents are a type of premise liability.  Premise liability cases are cases where someone is injured on someone else’s property as a result of a negligent act or omission of the property owner.

When do you need a slip and fall lawyer?

A slip and fall lawyer is needed in cases that involve injury on another person’s property, residential or commercial, as a result of a hazardous condition or negligent act or omission of the care of the property without warning to the invitees of the property. Examples of hazardous conditions include poor lighting, uneven flooring, loose steps, slippery floors, and sometimes other conditions in violation of building code.

Why is it important to choose the right slip and fall lawyer?

Although in most cases, the business or residential owner has General Liability coverage for these types of incidents.  Nevertheless, most premise liability cases are rarely settled by means of pre-suit action alone, and require extensive litigation.  Most of these matters may even lead to a trial by jury, requiring the injured to go through a considerable stent of the legal procedural process to reach final resolution. As these matters are generally litigated, it is important for the injured to hire a firm who maintains extensive litigation and trial experience to represent the injured in these matters.

Premise liability cases happen to be some of the most difficult and contested cases to litigate because there are countless factual and legal manners in which they can be defended.   Additionally, it often ends up being difficult and tedious to establish the fault of the property owner as the property owner is not necessarily automatically responsible for an injury sustained on their property. Many different factors are considered when determining liability in a slip and fall or premise liability action. For example, what was the reason for the victim being on their property when the accident occurred? Is it a legitimate reason? Did the victim do anything to increase the probability of the accident occurring? Did the owner do anything to prevent the accident from happening? If they did, was it sufficient?

The burden of proof on the client advocated by the lawyer requires the evidence of the following aspects of the claim. The slip and fall lawyer needs to show that the property owner created or had knowledge of the hazardous condition leading to the injury sustained, and neglected to take the necessary preventative measures to stop the accident from occurring. The property manager knew or should have known about the hazardous condition and did nothing to rectify the condition.
