Slip, trip and fall accidents are regularly considered “premises liability” cases. These cases occur when a property owner or custodian is negligent in the repair, maintenance, and upkeep of the property in question. A lot of states have laws that require landowners to maintain their property so that it doesn’t present an unreasonable risk of harm to those visiting the property. Often, these laws pertain to both homeowners and business owners.
In many states, a merchant owes a duty to persons who use their premises to exercise reasonable care to keep their passageways, aisles, and floors in a reasonably safe condition. This duty includes a reasonable effort to maintain the premises free of any hazardous conditions which might give rise to damage.
A slip and fall is a personal injury term that describes when someone trips, slips or falls and is injured on another person’s property. The Car Crash Lady Lawyers have seen people injured while frequenting businesses because of another person negligence. Because these accidents typically happen on another person’s property, they’re also considered to be premises liability claims. Whoever owns or is responsible for the premises the one who is legally responsible for your injury.
Premises can include hardware stores, restaurants, supermarkets, department stores, office buildings, other people’s homes, and much more.
Slip and fall injuries cover the gamut from neck/spine injuries, broken bones and amputations, to traumatic head injuries, lacerations and cosmetic disfigurements. In tragic cases, the victim can even die from the injuries suffered during a slip and fall.
The Dallas and Houston slip and fall attorneys at Carcrashladylawyers.com are committed to helping victims and their families recover compensation for the economic and emotional damages suffered as the result of someone else’s negligence.
Not every accident involving a slippery surface constitutes a lawsuit. Sometimes the victims fail to observe warning signs, participate in risky behavior that precipitated the accident, or were distracted and inattentive at the time. Often, the victims themselves are ruled partially to blame for the accident, but they may still be entitled to receiving compensation.
A personal injury attorney from Carcrashladylawyers.com will be happy to review your case to help determine the full scope of liability.
“Lanease and Barbara are some of the few compassionate and dedicated attorneys out there! After being denied service/representation by several lawyers, it was them who went up and beyond for me! They was very informative throughout the entire process.”
