Should I File a Personal Injury Case for My Slip & Fall Accident?
Slip and fall (or trip and fall) accidents are some of the most common accidents that lead to personal injury cases.
If you suffered from a slip and fall or trip and fall accident due to another person or entity's negligence, you're probably eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit against the party responsible for the accident.
Property owners have a duty to keep their property safe, and are responsible for regularly inspecting their property to make sure it's clear of hazards or other dangerous conditions. Once owners are aware of a potential danger, they must take action to warn individuals on the property and remove or address the condition.
For example, people in stores often spill things, creating a slippery surface that's not safe to walk on. As soon as the manager is aware of a spill they must warn their customers and take action to correct the condition. If the manager knows about the spill and fails to warn customers or attempt to address it, and a customer injures themself by slipping due to the hazard, that customer may be able to file a personal injury suit against the store.
It's worth noting that slip and fall or trip and fall cases are some of the most difficult personal injury lawsuits to win. It's easy for individuals or entities responsible for slip and fall accidents to argue that the person filing the personal injury claim is also at least partially responsible for the injury. For example, going back to our example of falling due to a spill in the store, the store might argue that the spill was easily noticeable. Therefore, it should have been avoided if the shopper was paying attention.
Due to how difficult they are to successfully prosecute, many slip and fall or trip and fall lawsuits result in the victim receiving only partial compensation.
