Slip, trips, and falls are some of the most common types of accidents and can happen nearly anywhere: including on another person’s property. In many cases, slips and falls are simply the result of one’s own carelessness or lapse in judgment. However, they can also be caused by another person’s negligence. For this reason, many slip, trip, and fall claims hinge on a single issue: liability.
In order to win a personal injury lawsuit or insurance settlement for a slip or fall accident, you must prove that another person is liable (i.e., legally responsible) for your injuries. The liable party is typically the owner of the property where your accident took place. Property owners (or their employees) have an obligation to recognize and prevent dangerous conditions that could cause a slip or fall. If their negligence or inaction resulted in your injury, you have the right to pursue compensation against them for medical expenses and other damages.
Working with an experienced personal injury attorney is the best way to understand how slip, trip, and fall cases work—and how to get maximum compensation for your injuries. Our team at Goldman & Daszkal can help you navigate these difficult cases and provide the caring legal representation you deserve.
