With slip and fall injuries, as long as you can show that you were injured during the fall and that it was in some way the fault of the property owner, you have a chance of winning your case. Here’s what you need to know before you pursue a case like this.
A slip and fall injury is an injury that occurs when a person slips, trips, or stumbles and falls, sustaining an injury, on another person or business's property.
For example, it’s common for someone to trip over torn carpet, a wet floor, an icy sidewalk or a step he or she couldn’t see due to poor lighting. Loose railings, uneven floorboards or ill-maintained flooring can also cause slip and fall injuries. Injuries can range from sprains and strains to broken bones, cuts, head injuries and more.
When you get hurt in a slip and fall incident, you can seek compensation to cover your medical bills and make up for any time you took off work to heal from your injury.
To win compensation, however, you have to prove liability.
In order to do this, you must show that the owner of the property on which you were injured failed to exercise ordinary care in the maintenance of his or her property.
For instance, maybe the property owner should have repaired the torn carpet or replaced a light bulb to make an area easier to see. Perhaps he or she should have scraped the ice or snow off the sidewalk or put up a sign to warn everyone the floor was wet. If you can prove that the injury could have been prevented if the property owner had been more careful, you have a chance of winning a slip and fall injury case.
If you want to pursue compensation for your case, you’ll need the help of a lawyer who has experience with slip and fall injury lawsuits. This is because it can be difficult to prove liability on your own, as you have to show that the property owner knew about — or should have known about — the issue that led to your injury. Your attorney can uncover and organize the information needed to help you win your case. An expert slip-and-fall injury lawyer can ensure that you get the money you need to recover, financially and physically, from your injury.
