Slip and falls are a type of premises liability claim. Owners are responsible to take every reasonable precaution to ensure that no one will become injured on their property. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen and visitors to their property are left with serious injuries or loved ones are left to file a wrongful death claim.
Common locations for falls include:
If it can be proven that the owner should have been aware of the risks presented by a certain area and should have warned of the risk or removed it altogether, you may be eligible to receive compensation.
When a slip and fall lawsuit occurs, often there can be more then one business responsible. The entity that operates the business can be responsible for not maintaining the premises appropriately. In some states, the case law that has been handed down by the courts has prescribed what is essentially a time limit of when a business is presumed to be liable for taking due care of an area on their premises.
Other companies that can be liable for a slip and fall are a property owner. If information becomes apparent in a law suit Discovery period that a property owner knew or should have known about an area on their property that someone could be injured on especially business invitees, that is not going to fair well for them in court. Property owners are most certainly an entity I examine when determining whom to pursue for compensation.
Another business is usually a maintenance company that may provide maintenance for a particular location. Some maintenance companies have contracts to remain on site at all times and clean a facility. When these maintenance companies fail to maintain a clean environment, this can cause accident and injury. Please do not hesitate to call me I am a dedicated slip and fall lawyer.
