Dangerous conditions at workplaces, grocery stores, construction sites, even restaurants can cause serious head and body trauma requiring extensive physical therapy and time off work. Slips and falls, which fall under the broad “premises liability” category, occur quite frequently in many areas many wouldn’t realize. Property owners are accountable for the upkeep of their premises, or they face civil action.

Traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord problems, and broken bones have been reported from slip and fall injuries. Depending on where and how injuries occurred, compensation could be significant.
Legal professionals, or those representing themselves, can’t walk into court and ask a judge to ‘believe them’. Our legal system requires a standard of proof beyond doubt for cases move to the next step in the litigation process. Where slip & fall accidents are concerned, there’s no room for error. The first element we need to prove is obvious: an injury occurred on somebody else’s property.
Another component of a slip and fall claim we must prove we’ll call “control”. Property owners, landlords, and employers must keep buildings up to code and reasonably safe workers, tenants and patrons. When an injury occurs, and improper control over its upkeep caused the incident, we must prove that whoever owns the building neglected their duty, and negligence caused your injury.
Yet another part of premises liability claims involves common sense. Would a reasonably responsible person have removed water from the floor to prevent a fall? Could reasonably priced materials and labor fix the stairwell? Finally, could a reasonably agile person still injure themselves? The last part calls to question whether someone purposely walked through a wet area to sustain an injury, or if the injury was unavoidable.
