What Are Typical Slip-And-Fall Case Requirements?

Many slip-and-fall accident claims hinge on what’s “reasonable” and “timely.” For example, store owners must be allowed a reasonable amount of time to realize a hazard exists and then to clean it up. In another example, a store or condo complex owner must be allowed a reasonable amount of time after snow or freezing rain stops falling to de-ice or shovel a sidewalk. At the same time, a reasonable person would know not to run down a potentially icy sidewalk or across a parking lot, into a building where floors may be wet from tracked-in rain or snow. Our lawyers will need to be able to show that:

  • You were on the premises legally (i.e., you were not trespassing)
  • A hazardous condition on the premises caused your fall, resulting in an injury
  • The property owner knew about or should have known about the hazardous condition and failed to mitigate its danger in a timely manner, either through cleanup, repair, or an adequate warning
  • The existence of the hazard was not so obvious that a reasonable person would have realized that he or she should steer clear

You can be certain that property owners, through their insurance company’s lawyers, will challenge your claim for compensation. This makes it crucial to contact our dedicated premises liability lawyers as soon as possible after being injured in a slip-and-fall accident.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will my case take?

The amount of time it takes to resolve your case will depend on multiple factors. First, it is important that you take the time you need to heal. Once you reach maximum medical improvement, we will be able to estimate the extent of your damages. Second, you are the one who decides when you want to settle or go to court. Our attorneys will present you with every settlement offer and explain whether we feel you are owed more. We will negotiate aggressively and be prepared to take your claim before a judge and jury, if necessary. But a lawsuit does take time, and it is ultimately your decision on how you want to proceed.

What will my lawyer handle for me?

Our full-service personal injury law firm will handle all aspects of your claim, including communicating with the insurance company, filing your property damage claim, and keeping track of your medical records. We will also launch our own investigation into the cause of your accident to identify every possible source of compensation. And we will bring in medical experts and financial professionals to help evaluate your claim and determine what full and fair compensation should be.

What will I have to do for my personal injury case?

You need to stay focused on your health. Make sure you follow your doctor’s orders and make it to all your appointments. Start a journal to document how your injury is affecting your everyday life, both physically and emotionally. And protect your privacy by taking a break from social media and not talking about your case.

What is Premises Liability?

A property owner, or the manager of a commercial property, has a legal obligation to ensure the premises are free of safety hazards or that existing hazards are marked in a manner that warns people of the existence of that danger. When a property owner or their staff is negligent in removing or warning about safety hazards, people can get hurt. And when they are hurt, they can seek compensation.
