Determining Whether You Have A Slip-And-Fall Claim
There are many misconceptions about slip-and-fall claims. Many people believe that they can file a claim simply because they tripped and fell at a business, but that is not always the case. There are two main factors we examine when determining if our clients have a case:
- The first factor that we need to consider is the severity of the injuries. If there were no injuries, there is no claim. We typically handle cases where the slip or fall leads to head, neck or back injuries or other serious injuries accompanied by high medical bills.
- The second factor that our team must take into consideration is whether the property owner was at fault. A lawyer may be necessary to review this issue and determine whether the hazard that caused the accident was one the property owner knew about or should have known about, such as a spill that staff left unattended for hours before the accident. Suppose a spill occurred immediately before the accident. In that case, the property owner might not have had an opportunity to address the hazard. There may be no opportunity for a claim in those cases. We will review your case to determine whether you can pursue compensation.
