Slip and Fall Accidents: Cases we Handle

Our legal team has the experience to handle a range of injuries resulting from unsafe property conditions. Examples of cases we handle include:

  • Injuries caused by ice and snow or wet and slippery surfaces not addressed by a property owner
  • Accidents involving open holes, exposed wiring, and uneven surfaces
  • Failures to warn visitors and guests about potential hazards
  • Failures to barricade potential hazards and prevent visitors or guests from getting near them
  • Insufficient lighting that leads to trips and falls
  • Slip and fall accidents at private homes, complexes managed by an HOA, or commercial businesses

Proving Fault & Liability in a Slip & Fall Case

Proving fault and liability in a slip and fall accident case is a matter that depends on the unique facts and circumstances involved. Generally, there are four elements to prove:

  • The defendant owed you a legal duty – As the victim, you are tasked with proving a legal duty existed between you and the defendant. This usually means proving you were a visitor or guest on the property (such as when you visit a private home, a retail business, or perform work on another property). Premises owners owe a legal duty to visitors and guests, and must take reasonable measures to ensure their property is free from preventable hazards that can foreseeably cause harm.
  • The duty was breached – After proving a legal duty did exist, you must show how it was breached by the defendant. Generally, this means proving negligence and how a property owner failed to uphold their obligation of addressing preventable hazards. Did the property owner create the hazard? Did they know, or should they have known, about the hazard but did nothing to fix it? Should they have discovered and addressed a potential hazard but did not? If they created the hazard, knew or should have known about it, or should have discovered the potential danger but did nothing to fix it, they may have breached their legal duty.
  • Causation – You must also prove that a premises owner’s failure to take appropriate steps in ensuring the safety of their property more likely than not caused your accident and injuries. Would you have suffered injuries if the potential hazard was fixed or if proper warnings or barricades were provided by the property owner? If so, you may have a basis to prove causation.
  • Damages – In order to have a valid claim, you must have suffered damages. These damages can include your medical bills, lost income, and other economic losses created by your injuries, as well as your pain and suffering, emotional anguish, and other non-economic damages. You can seek a recovery of these damages in your claim.
