Assessing A Slip-And-Fall Situation
Slip-and-fall injuries can happen anywhere, at any time, making them one of the most common reasons for personal injury claims each year. Dangerous property conditions such as unlit stairwells, construction site defects and wet floors or other slippery surfaces can result in serious injuries or even death. If you are the victim of a slip-and-fall accident on the premises of a business or property, Titsworth Law Offices, P.A., is here for you.
Our personal injury attorneys will explain to you how North Carolina law plays into effect with your slip-and-fall accident. There are many factors to consider such as previous complaints about an existing hazard, determining negligence of a business or property owner and determining negligence, if any, of the individual injured.
What Factors Play Into Your Case?
Every slip-and-fall accident is unique, but with decades of experience in personal injury law and developing unique approaches for each client, our lawyers understand how to seek the compensation you deserve.
When possible, we recommend the individual take photographs, get witness information, fill out an accident report and save evidence from the accident. These factors will prove valuable in front of a jury.
For a property owner to be held legally liable for your injuries, one of the following must be true:
- The owner of the premises (or an employee) must have caused a spill or another dangerous condition
- The owner of the premises (or an employee) must have known of a dangerous condition but failed to correct it properly
- The owner of the premises (or an employee) “should have known” a dangerous condition was present
If any of the above statements are true, you may be able to file a claim and prove an owner was negligent in maintaining safe property.
