Can a Personal Injury Attorney Help Me if I am Injured From a Slip & Fall?

If you have been injured as a result of tripping and falling, and you feel this could have been prevented, a local personal injury attorney is going to be a huge help for you.  Premises liability law indicates a property owner is responsible for any damages that come as a result of an injury on the property.

Property owners are required to make a reasonable effort to maintain a safe environment on their property for the people who reside, work, or visit there.  If the owner fails to maintain and/or warn of the dangerous condition, the injured party may have a right to be compensated.

Requirements In a Personal Injury Slip & Fall Case

All personal injury attorneys understand that slips, trips, and falls can happen anywhere.  Sometimes it’s simply a matter of having one of those clumsy moments that everyone experiences from time to time.  Other times, however, the fall and resulting injuries could have easily been prevented.  When you come across dangerous floors, sidewalks that are slippery or cracked, or problems within a building such as unsafe stairways, it can be easy to get hurt if we aren’t paying attention.

Premises liability cases are difficult, primarily because proving fault with evidence that will withstand scrutiny before insurance panels and/or a judge can be very hard to do.  For a successful case, a personal injury attorney will

Prove duty of care

The key question in premises liability cases is to prove that the property owner is responsible for maintaining a standard of reasonable care for the property.

Show breach of duty

Once it is shown that the property owner is responsible for reasonable care for the property, we must prove that reasonable care did not happen – either through carelessness or negligence.

Prove breach of duty caused injury

This stage includes evidence showing that because the property owner failed to maintain a standard of care, you suffered an injury as a direct result.

An experienced personal injury attorney can help you go through the details of the incident and determine if there is cause to move forward with your case.  There are several factors that will go into determining whether the property owner has maintained the “reasonable standard of care.”
