How Do You Know If You Have a Slip & Fall Case?Oftentimes, when people slip and fall, no one else is nearby, which is part of the reason why they fall completely to the ground. But this isolation during the accident can also convince people that they must have been the one to blame for the slip or trip. After all, if no one else was nearby, then no one else was to blame, right? Not always, no. The premise of a slip and fall accident case is that a property owner can be to blame for someone’s slip if the proprietor could have taken steps to prevent it but did not. If you slipped or tripped on some hazard that reasonably should not have been there, or that you should not have been allowed to encounter, then you probably have a slip and fall accident case on your hands.
Where Do Slip & Fall Accidents Mostly Occur?We hear from people who have slipped and fallen on all types of properties, including residential, commercial, and industrial properties. Many of the people who need the help of our Jackson slip and fall accident attorneys were shopping in a store when they took a bad spill. Others want to know if they can and should sue their friend or neighbor after they slipped while visiting their homes. Wherever your slip and fall accident occurred, we can help you decide how to take legal action. Commonplace hazards that can cause a slip and fall accident are:
- Slippery or wet tile floors
- Lifted or frayed carpets and rugs
- Loose cables and wires
- Dirt and debris
- Cracked asphalt
- Dimly lit passageways
- Stairs without handrails
- And more
Who is Liable for Your Slip & Fall Accident?The property owner could be liable for your slip and fall accident if they should have been able to prevent it with more care and attention. If you are on a piece of property as an invitee, such as a customer in a store, then the property owner owes you a high duty of care to protect you from slip hazards. Typically, this duty of care includes inspecting the property regularly for any hazards and cleaning up those hazards before you are allowed to get near them. The frequency of property inspections and hazard maintenance can be open to some interpretation of the law, though. Imagine that you slipped on some juice that was spilled on an aisle in a grocery store 10 minutes ago. Is that time too long, and should the staff have already cleaned up the mess by the time you slipped? What if the spill occurred only 5 minutes ago? There are many ways that a slip and fall situation can be argued. To avoid the frustrations of dealing with an opposition that will try to blame you or say that the proprietor didn’t have a chance to address the slip hazards, leave everything up to Mama Justice.
