Slip and Fall Injuries FAQ
Q: Who is responsible for a slip and fall?
If you have slipped and fallen at a place of business or another person’s property, it’s important that you understand your legal rights. Proprietors, business owners, landlords, and homeowners have a duty to keep their property free from serious hazards. If they fail to do so, and someone gets hurt as a result, they may be held responsible.
Q: Why do slip and fall accidents occur?
Many factors contribute to slip and fall accident conditions. Some causes include:
- Uneven, broken sidewalks
- Poorly lit walking areas, such as a dark parking lot
- Slippery or wet floors
- Snow or ice that has not been removed after it has stopped accumulating
- Design flaws on the property
- A hidden defect on the walking service, like a broken stair
It is the owner’s responsibility to keep his property clear of dangers because any of the above conditions can lead to a serious accident. However, it is often more complicated than that. As the injured victim, you must prove liability in order to receive compensation for your injuries. That is why it is vital that you have an experienced slip and fall attorney on your side.
Q: How will a slip and fall attorney prove my case?
When you hire Munley Law, our team of lawyers will investigate your case thoroughly to determine who was at fault for your accident. We will examine such factors as:
- Could the property owner have prevented the slip and fall accident?
- What were the conditions of the property before the accident?
- Was the property owner aware of the conditions that lead to the accident?
- Did the proprietor make any effort to warn patrons/visitors of the hazard?
- Was the property owner the cause of the dangerous condition (such as spilling water on the floor, making it slippery)?
Q: Do most slip and fall cases settle out of court?
If you have been in a slip and fall accident, you want to be sure that you receive fair and proper compensation for your injuries. However, no one wants their case to go to court. So many of our clients ask, “Do most slip and fall cases settle out of court?”
The good news is that the vast majority of slip and fall cases do settle out of court, meaning an agreement is reached between parties outside of the courtroom and there is no need for a trial.
Q: Why should I choose a Munley Law slip and fall attorney to represent me?
These types of accidents can be difficult to prove fault. A property owner may blame you for your injuries. But don’t be fooled — even if you are partially to blame for the accident, you can still recover compensation because of the owner’s negligence. Only an experienced slip and fall attorney can prove responsibility and help you win your case.
If you had a slip and fall accident caused by someone’s carelessness, don’t wait any longer. Call us today at (855) 866-5529 or use our online contact form now to get in touch with one of our slip and fall injury attorneys.
