Slip and fall accidents cause thousands of injuries every year. A slightly wet floor in a supermarket can cause a broken leg or permanent spinal cord damage. It can land an individual in a wheelchair for the rest of his or her life.
Who is responsible? Premise liability law governs slip and fall accidents, determining who is at fault - every case is different. The court asks if the property owner took all precautions to make the area safe, was the victim careless? A victim must prove that the property owner caused the unsafe condition by knowing about the situation and doing nothing to fix it. The victim must prove that a "reasonable" person would have fixed the problem once finding it.
A slip and fall can cause a victim long-term problems. An experienced Personal Injury attorney can help you by investigating the facts and reviewing your options with you
