Accidents happen, and it is important to understand your rights if you are the victim of a slip and fall accident so that you may seek proper compensation. At Personal Injury Attorneys PLLC, Arizona’s leading personal injury law firm, we are familiar with the challenges that arise from an injury suffered as a result of a slip and fall incident.
Proving Your Slip and Fall Case
Proving that your slip and fall case was a result of a dangerous condition such as a wet or slippery floor is essential to achieving a favorable outcome, and having an experienced attorney will be a key element in your success.
Proving that the property owner was aware of the dangerous situation is also essential and your attorney must illustrate that the property owner was responsible for the following:
- Creating the dangerous situation
- Being aware of the dangerous situation and exhibited negligence in repairing the existing problem
- Not repairing the problem within a reasonable amount of time
It is important that your personal injury attorney gathers substantial evidence to prove the owner’s negligence after a slip and fall incident. Photographs, medical records, accident reports and witness testimonials are key pieces of evidence that your attorney should investigate thoroughly.
Negligence in Your Slip and Fall Accident Case
Determining whether or not the property owner was negligent or was acting as a reasonable and responsible person will be important in the determination of whether or not you have a solid basis for building a successful claim and your attorney will support you in asking these important questions.
In some situations, a landlord may be held responsible and liable for a slip and fall accident. It is generally accepted that it is a landlord’s responsibility to maintain a property to a level of reasonable safety, and when an unsafe area exists with the landlord’s knowledge then he or she may be responsible to compensate any injured party on the basis of negligence. In other situations, a landlord may be responsible for slips and falls that occur within a tenant’s living space. If a landlord fails to inform new tenants of known property defects, they may be held liable for any slip and fall accident that occurs as well as when there are any violations of building ordinances or building codes.
