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?
Slip and fall accidents can result in many injuries that range from physical damage to a person’s body, mental, emotional, or financial well-being. Physical damages may include, but are not limited to: Back and Neck Injuries, including broken or slipped vertebra (disks) throughout the neck and spinal column. As well as chronic pain that can require surgery or debilitate a person were they no longer can work and earn an income.

Torn tendons and ligaments can happen in almost any slip and fall case. This usually occurs when a person tries to catch themselves when falling. This response can stop the fall all together but can make the injury worse. These injuries may be treated with surgery and physical therapy, but can cause the injured person to suffer lifelong consequences that may never fully heal.
The goal of slip and fall settlements are to make the plaintiff whole again and to restore their financial situation to where it was before the accident. This may include calculating the lifetime cost of medical bills, attorney fees, household bills and necessities.
There many factors to consider determining slip and fall settlements. Negligence on behalf of a property/business owner and liability are the two major components of these cases, but it is important that the plaintiff must be free from blame of the injuries that are suffered.
