Slip, Trip, and Fall Injuries

It can be as simple as a rough patch of sidewalk, a pothole, or an icy spot. Unfortunately, slip, trip, and fall injuries can belie their simple origins, causing serious or even fatal injuries to the back, head, bones, or nerves. If you’ve been injured in a trip and fall accident, you’re probably looking for answers — and we have more information for you.

In order to prove liability in a slip and fall case, you must be able to prove that:

  • The property owner is in fact responsible for the site where you were injured.
  • The owner actually caused the dangerous spot, knew about the danger but did nothing, or should have known about it as a matter of reasonable duty
  • Damage was caused, and caused injury
  • The injury caused created monetary damages such as the need for medical care or vocational rehabilitation.

If you were injured in a slip, trip, and fall case, you’ll want to bring the property owner to task for their carelessness. However, doing so isn’t always cut and dry. What was your responsibility on the site? Was the site directly owned by one person, but maintained by another entity? What kind of damage did the injury cause?

A reliable and experienced personal injury lawyer can help unravel these issues through a thorough investigation with evidence collection in mind. If you do pursue a slip, trip and fall injury lawsuit, your personal injury attorney can represent your interests in court and help you acquire a settlement or verdict that exceeds the “quick-fix” settlements favored by insurance companies.
