What Can Happen After an Accident?
A fall can result in very serious injuries and can have a long-term impact on the victim. A victim may be unable to participate in or enjoy the same kind of injuries that they did before their fall. Their injury may be so severe that they lose their ability to live independently. Serious injuries that result from a fall include:
Property owners have a duty to maintain their property and take reasonable care to avoid causing harm to others. A victim seeking compensation from a property owner for a slip and fall injury must prove that the property owner created or should have known of the existence of an unsafe condition on their property, and failed to take reasonable action to avert harm to others. A property owner may be able to avoid liability by proving that the unsafe condition was open and obvious.
Whether an unsafe condition exists on a property depends on the particular facts and circumstances of each case. Your slip and fall lawyer will review the particular facts of your case and determine the strength of your claim.
