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, 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. Some causes of slip and fall accidents 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.
How Our Slip and Fall Attorney Can Prove Fault
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)?
