What Is a Slip & Fall Accident?
A slip & fall accident occurs when someone is injured due to a hazard on someone else's property. This can happen in a number of different situations, such as when a store puts a wet floor sign out but does not clean the floors, when an employee leaves tools or other hazards in a workplace, or when a public building does not clean up snow and ice.
Slip & fall accidents are some of the most common types of personal injury accidents. In fact, the average person will experience a slip & fall accident at least once in their lifetime. Slip & fall accidents can result in a wide range of serious injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and more.
Who Is Liable for Slip & Fall Accidents?
In order to prove that you are owed compensation, you will have to prove that the property owner or business was negligent. Negligence occurs when someone does not take the necessary precautions to prevent harm to others. In the context of slip & fall accidents, negligence occurs when a property owner fails to clean up a hazard, such as spilled liquids, ice, snow, or other debris.
Typically, the property owner is liable for the victim's injuries in a slip & fall accident. However, there are some exceptions to this rule.
- If the victim was trespassing at the time of the accident, this could create some complications for the case.
- If the victim was partly responsible for the accident, their damages will be reduced accordingly.
- If the victim was mostly responsible for the accident, they will not be able to collect compensation.
To prove that you were not trespassing, were not partially responsible for the incident, or were not mostly responsible, our team of Bridgeton slip & fall attorneys can help you fight to prove that you are owed compensation.
