Frequently Asked Questions about Slip & Fall Accidents


What is Slip and Fall Negligence?

Negligence typically involves the disregard for the safety of others. If a dangerous situation was created by a property owner or business, you could prove whether the liable property owner specifically caused the dangerous situation themselves and that it was reasonably understandable that a person would suffer an injury due to the situation.

Plaintiffs are responsible of proving that the liable party could have taken an action to prevent the accident but failed to do so. They must also prove that even if there was a valid reason for the obstruction to be present, that the justification was not longer valid at the time of the accident occurred, and no preventive measures were taken in order to prevent the accident.


What is Liability?

In order to prove that someone is liable, they must have a legal responsibility for the property. A property owner or business owner would normally assume liability for an injury that happens at their place of business, unless they have insurance that relieves them of that liability. In the case that the owner or employer has liability insurance, the insurance company accepts the liability and therefore the plaintiff must file a suit against the insurance company instead of the property or business owner.

What are the common injuries associated with slip and fall accidents?
