What causes a slip and fall accidents?
There are several common causes of slip and fall accidents that merit an award for compensation. You may be able to hold the property owner responsible in certain situations. Following are some examples of hazardous conditions that may lead to a slip and fall accident:
Standing water or a spill
Freshly washed or waxed floor
Missing or defective stair
Ice or snow on a walkway
Poorly placed floor mat or door mat
To be able to successfully recover financial compensation for your slip and fall accident claim, you will need to be able to prove that the property owner was negligent in some way in regard to maintaining, inspecting or repairing property grounds. For example: a store owner who fails to place a warning sign after a floor is washed may be held accountable if a customer slips and is injured.
However, the defense of contributory negligence or comparative fault still applies and the person bringing may have some fault for his or her own injuries which could reduce the ultimate value of the claim. Insurance companies and defense lawyers will often try to blame the person that fell for his/her own injuries. You need an experienced slip & fall lawyer to represent you in theses circumstances to maximize your settlement or verdict. The injured person may be able to recover money for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other economic and noneconomic damages, depending on the case.
