If you slip or trip or fall on someone else's property, you may have a case against the owner. Many thousands of people are injured each year due to slip or trip and falls. Many of these falls can lead to serious injuries. Most notably, when the brain is traumatized from a fall, for example when a concussion occurs, the damages can be devastating, and the recovery slow and painful.
How do you determine if the owner has some responsibility when you slip or trip and become injured? This typically requires a comprehensive analysis, but a few things to consider follows:
- Did the owner of the premises cause the condition that led to the fall?
- Was there a spill the owner knew about?
- Was there a torn, slippery, or otherwise dangerous spot that led to the fall?
- Did the owner know about the condition, but do nothing about it?
- Would a reasonable person, knowing about the condition, have done something to repair it?
We evaluate each situation individually to help you determine if your injury give rise to a claim against a property owner. We are happy to provide you with a free consultation if you believe your injury may be due to an unreasonable property condition.
