Slip & Fall Accidents
When an accident occurs to a visitor or tenant on another person’s property, they may be liable if their negligence proves to have led to the injury. If injured through slip and fall accidents at someone else’s home or business which you believe resulted from the negligence of another, you can file a lawsuit. You can recover the costs involved to pay for your medical bills, any lost earnings, pain, disfigurement, emotional distress, or permanent physical disability suffered.
In cases involving slip and fall accidents, plaintiffs must prove the property owners failed to maintain the property or created unsafe conditions causing the injury. Also, they knew about the dangerous premises, or unsafe hazards but didn’t alert visitors. Also important is whether or not the unsafe condition was permanent or temporary. With temporary conditions, the length of time it existed may bear on your ability to prove your case.
