Question:

What is a slip and fall claim?

Answer:

Slip and Fall Claim An important area of personal injury law deals with slip and falls. They are not as common as car accidents, which seem like they happen every day, but they are more common than people imagine. You’re walking through a grocery store. There’s spilled milk on the aisle where the cartons of milk are, and fifteen people have walked by and no one has made any effort to clean up this spilled milk. You walk on it, you slip and fall, and that could be a problem. Or, there’s a nail in the floor. They’ve known it’s been there for the last three weeks. They haven’t taken the time to fix it. You walk over it, the heel of your shoe gets caught on it, and you slip and fall and break an elbow or break your femur. These are slip and fall cases. They happen quite often, although they are not as pronounced as car accidents are.

You want to make sure that you select an attorney that understands the theory of liability under slip and fall cases, which defines how folks that own property are to maintain their property and make sure that there are no known present dangers. You want to talk to an attorney that can walk through that analysis with you because it very well may not have been an accident that’s your fault. It may have been something that this company or property owner was supposed to fix and did not fix. So, first and foremost, you want to sit and talk with a lawyer.

Call our office. We’ll sit down and go over the facts of your case. There could be something there. Certainly you didn’t fall on your own, didn’t fall on purpose. Talk with one of our lawyers. Let’s find out what the theories of liability are and what the damages are so that your claims can be adequately pursued.
