Slip/Trip & Fall Injuries

A slip and fall accident can occur when a person falls and is injured on another person's property. This type of incident is often a result of a dangerous or otherwise hazardous condition on the property, such as a slippery floor, broken stair or uneven pavement. Property owners have to duty to maintain reasonably safe premises for anyone invited onto the property. It these owners fail to correct or to warn that a hazardous condition exists, then they may be held liable for damages.

Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents are governed by the law of premises liability. These laws rely heavily on the theory of negligence, which means that we will need to be able to demonstrate that the property owner had a duty to:

  • Maintain reasonably a safe premises
  • Know of any dangerous condition on the premises
  • Take reasonable steps to correct the hazardous condition

If the property owner's failure to do any of the above resulted in your accident, and that accident directly caused your injury, you may have a valid slip and fall claim.

How Can Troy Lanier Prove My Slip and Fall Case?

It is beneficial to have witness testimony to corroborate your story. The witness does not necessarily need to have seen the incident. If he or she can attest to the condition of the property at the time of your injury, it may help your case. Attorney Lanier can interview witnesses, as well as collect evidence from the scene in order to further your claim.

Medical records can also serve as evidence in your slip and fall claim. These records will offer proof of your injuries and the amount of time it may take you to recover. Medical bills will help in showing how much your injuries have cost. Additionally, you should keep a journal documenting your injuries and how they impact your daily life.

What Compensation Can I Receive for my Slip and Fall Injury Claim?

In a slip and fall claim, a damage award can generally include compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Lost future earnings
