Slip And Fall Cases
Falling down is a common occurrence. Falls often do not cause much harm to the individual, but in certain unfortunate situations, individuals are injured in slip and fall accidents. If you have been seriously injured in a slip and fall accident because a property owner failed to warn individuals of any potentially dangerous surfaces, they may be held accountable for your pain and suffering.
What Must Be Present In a Slip and Fall Case?
In order for the property owner to be found liable for your injuries, several requirements must be met:
- Dangerous condition(s) on the property caused you to slip and fall
- Owner either knew of the hazard and did not act upon it, or did not give proper warning
- Slip and fall resulted in one or more injuries
- Injury / injuries resulted in financial and / or emotional losses
It may be necessary to seek an expert witness for your case to evaluate the conditions in your slip and fall accident and testify how you were not at fault. Evaluating the exact conditions for your slip and fall case can be difficult to prove in court, so you want to have photographs of the site of injury and witnesses if possible.
