What Does The Law Say?

Generally, rulings in slip-and-fall lawsuits revolve around two issues: first, whether the owner knew, or should have known, about a hazardous situation and taken care of it; and second, whether the plaintiff was partially responsible for having fallen on it. In many cases, a favorable outcome can be achieved only with skilled, intelligent representation.

The court must decide, in slip-and-fall cases, whether the owner knew about a dangerous condition on his or her property and neglected to resolve it. Even if the owner claims no knowledge of the danger, there is also the question of whether he or she should have known about it and fixed it, given the amount of time it existed and other circumstances of the case.

Trip-and-fall cases vary widely, and our premises liability attorneys have the background in this field to win our clients the restitution they deserve. Contact us to schedule a free consultation and case review.

Obtaining Compensation

For a successful premises liability lawsuit, our attorneys must show that the owner was negligent in his or her duties, either in physically eliminating hazardous conditions or in warning visitors about them. Often, the owner will be found partially at fault for injuries, a ruling that results in the plaintiff receiving a percentage of the damages awarded instead of the full amount.
