Premises liability refers to the responsibility of the owner or manager of a property to make sure it is reasonably safe for the people who use it. Slip and fall accidents that take place somewhere other than work usually fall into the category of legal cases called premises liability.
Proving Your Slip and Fall Case
Slip and fall cases have proven to be a complicated area of the law. Thorough investigation of the details is critical and facts that may seem trivial, such as the length of time a puddle has been on the floor before an accident occurred, or whether the victim was alerted to the danger, can make a huge impact as we expertly begin to build your case.
In order for you to be awarded compensation in a slip and fall case, the property owner must have been negligent and the injuries you sustained must be directly related to the owner’s negligence. Slip and fall cases can often require extensive legal knowledge to establish who should be held responsible. It is imperative that you work with attorneys that have extensive experience in this area of law in order for you to get the best result for your case.
