Who Is Responsible For My Slip and Fall Accident?

If you slip and fall due to slippery floors, you may be entitled to financial compensation. In the event you want to take legal action, here are the steps to determining who is at fault for your personal injury.

Premise liability

Premise liability is established if you're injured due to the negligence of another. It can be a person who is responsible or an entire company. If you fall because of something you did, like tripping over your shoelace or walking on a bad knee, the premises may not be at fault.

Slippery floors are one of the leading causes of slip and fall cases; nearly 22% of slip and fall cases can cause an individual to miss over a month of work. You could also fall due to broken stairs or even changes in the ground.

When is the owner of the property not at fault

While a property owner must perform necessary maintenance on their establishment, there are certain features of a place that is necessary. If a material or source of your injury serves a function, the owner may not be at fault. For example, a metal drain could be a little slippery or you might slip because of the change in the floor, but the drain serves a necessary function and the owner would not be at fault for your injury.

How to determine liability

For the owner of a company to be held liable, the owner or an employee of the facility must have caused the unsafe environment. This could be through neglect of the premises, but it could also be due to accidents that occur in the workplace. Additionally, the owner must have been aware of the problem. If they didn't realize there was an issue, your claim may not be seen as reasonable.

Understanding the ins and outs of premise liability can be difficult when you're going through a tough time. If you have been in an accident because of slippery floors, you might be entitled to compensation for your personal injury.

  • Great Lawyer For A Reasonable Price

    Mr. Hulett was a very competent and effective lawyer for me in my custody case. Not only did we get the desired result but he did it for less than half of what my ex paid to her attorney on the same matter.
