A Slip and Fall Injury is a Serious Legal Matter
Slip and fall accidents are not new. Victims often suffer debilitating, or even fatal injuries. Poorly maintained walking surfaces often lead to these type of incidents. For example, when a floor is left wet, it is easy for someone walking on it to fall if they do not know it is slippery. In the case of a slip and fall accident, the liability of the property owner is not always obvious. If you believe that the owner of a certain property is liable for your slip and fall accident, you have to prove that they are responsible.
Remember, a slip and fall accident doesn’t make the owner of a property automatically liable; therefore, the obligation of establishing liability falls on you. The attorneys at Benson Allred Injury Law can advise you and help ascertain liability. First, you need to establish that there was hazard and that the property owner’s involvement contributed to, or created the hazard. Second, you have to establish that the property owner knew of the hazardous walkway, or should have known of the hazard, but never took any steps to remedy the problem or notify you of the issue. Third, you need to establish that the property owner failed to timely and reasonably secure the walkway. It is difficult to establish liability on a slip and fall case.
