What Causes a Slip and Fall Injury?

Slip and fall injuries are some of the most common premises liability accidents. When a property owner does not adhere to necessary safety requirements their guests, visitors or passersby may get injured. These injuries could happen anywhere but we commonly see them take place in the following areas:

  • Improperly Maintained Walkways

A slip and fall injury can occur inside of a building due to floorboards coming loose, torn or wrinkled carpeting or rugs which do not have a slip guard beneath them. A slip and fall injury may also take place outdoors on sidewalks or other areas with cracked, uneven concrete.

  • Poorly Lit Areas

Poor visibility in areas with foot traffic can lead to many traumatic slip and fall injuries. In order to avoid these types of slip and fall accidents, it is important that buildings are equipped with proper lighting in all walkways, hallways and staircases.

  • Unattended Spills

As humans, we all make mistakes and that includes spilling liquids. However, it is the duty of a building owner to ensure either they or their employees put up a sign or other warning of a spill which cannot be immediately cleaned up. In the event there was not a warning posted, or an area wasn’t roped off, a slip and fall accident can occur and badly injure someone.

The above are just a few of the ways a slip and fall accident may occur and cause a costly injury.

Proving Negligence in a Slip and Fall Claim

In order to recover the financial claim to cover your medical expenses and other living expenses following a slip and fall accident, you will need to prove another party was liable for your accident.

To do this, you will have to prove that the owner didn’t respect the duty of care they owe to patrons, guests and other visitors on their property. An important aspect of the duty of care to your slip and fall accident claim is the responsibility to make sure their property is free from dangerous, injury causing condition. In the event there is a dangerous condition, they then have the duty to inform any and all visitors with signs. Failure to do so, especially when fully aware of the hazard present, can amount to negligence and assign them liability for any slip and fall injuries which take place.

In order to prove that the injury you endured was because of a property owner’s negligence, you will need the help of an experienced slip and fall lawyer. Our team at Cueria Law Firm, LLC, features an attorney with over twenty years of successfully negotiating slip and fall claims through demands, mediation and even trial. If you were injured in a slip and fall accident and believe another person’s negligence caused the accident, contact us today at (504) 525-5211.

Common Injuries from Slip and Fall Accidents

In our daily lives we expect a level of safety and well-being while out in the world. When you are injured in a slip and fall accident, it may affect more than just your physical health. The damages you may be able to make a claim against a negligent party’s insurance company for extend past physical health as well.

In addition to spinal injuries, traumatic brain injuries and broken bones, victims of slip and fall accidents often face mental pain and anguish, including the fear that another accident will take place. This can cause them to lose the quality of life and relationships they knew before their slip and fall accident. These are all damages to life which are difficult to quantify in a claim against an insurance policy. That’s why you need to hire an experienced attorney following a slip and fall accident.

Hiring an Attorney to Represent You During a Slip and Fall Claim

Insurance companies will contact you and attempt to get medical information, including your personal history, in an effort to justify offering you a small settlement. When you are offered a settlement amount, you should always consult with a personal injury or slip and fall attorney. They will be able to evaluate your case using their experiences and negotiate a higher settlement amount. Accepting a settlement amount from the insurance company without doing so will mean you waive your right to future damages and claims against liable parties.

Once you hire our slip and fall attorney to represent you in your claim against a property owner and their insurance company, we will handle your case from beginning to end. Our team will gather all documentation which can be used as evidence including police and incident reports, evidence of the damaged property, and witness statements. Our experienced slip and fall attorney will consult with medical providers and forensic experts to construct a clear picture of how your slip and fall accident occurred and how it affected your health. We’ll handle the insurance claim, help you set up doctor’s appointments and advise you on your case every step of the way.

If you or your loved one have been in a slip and fall accident, contact our slip and fall attorney today at (504) 525-5211 for a free consultation on how you can get the maximum settlement you deserve and need to move on with your life.
