Slip and fall accidents can also result in personal injury law claims. The slip and fall must occur on someone else’s property. Slip and fall accidents are often categorized under premises liability claims.
Hundreds of thousands of people are injured every year in slip and fall accidents. The cause is often a defect in the floor or an unsafe condition such as changes in the walking surface, poor lighting, or a slippery surface, like black ice.
In order to recover in most slip and fall cases, the injured party must prove that:
- A dangerous condition existed
- The property owner knew or should have known about the condition
- The property owner did nothing to remedy the dangerous condition
The law limits the amount of time you may wait before filing your slip and fall lawsuit. Don’t deny yourself compensation simply because you took too long. Contact an experienced slip and fall attorney in your area to evaluate your claim.
