Premises Liability The Basis of Slip and Fall Injury Cases

Slip and fall injuries are a subcategory of premises liability, which is the legal concept of property owners being responsible for maintaining a safe environment for visitors. Although many kinds of personal injury can result from the negligence of a property owner, slip and fall accidents are among the most common. Each year, more than 800,000 people are hospitalized due to falls.

Do I Have A Fall Accident Case?

In order to hold a property owner responsible for your slip and fall injury, you must be able to prove:

You Are Owed a Duty of Care

This means the property owner was obligated to provide a certain amount of safety through maintenance, resolving dangerous conditions, and providing hazard warnings. When you enter another party's property, you can be classified in one of three ways:

  1. A licensee, meaning you have permission to enter the property and are owed a duty of care.
  2. An invitee, meaning you have a right to enter for business purposes, such as shopping. These parties are owed the greatest duty of care.
  3. A trespasser, meaning you didn't have permission to enter. Trespassers are owed the least amount of duty by property owners. But if the injured trespasser is a child, for example, a property owner can be held responsible for failing to use fencing or other physical boundaries.

Negligence

You must prove that the property owner failed to maintain the property, fix something that posed a danger, or provide warning of a known danger. For example, if a property owner was aware of loose carpeting on a stairway that resulted in a fall, that would be considered negligence.

Causation

You must prove that the dangerous condition was the direct cause of your slip and fall injury.

Damages

A plaintiff has to prove that the personal injury resulted in losses. This could include medical bills, a compromised ability to work, emotional pain and suffering, and property damage (such as broken jewelry).

Is a Fall Lawyer Necessary?

If you suffered a slip and fall on someone else's property, you may feel that the facts of the case are crystal clear to everyone. But you must understand that property owners - especially those who own stores or other places of business - are no strangers to this type of liability. They will not hesitate to enlist their own legal counsel who will focus on shifting blame to anyone but their client. 

Mr. Ibrahim is a personal injury lawyer who can collect evidence, build a compelling case, and present that case in a way that either compels the property owner to work toward an out-of-court settlement or convinces a jury that you are deserving of maximum restitution. 

Because he offers free consultations and works on contingency, you have absolutely nothing to lose by placing Mr. Ibrahim and his Jersey City, New Jersey, law firm in your corner. And when you consider the astronomical cost of rebuilding your life after a serious injury, it just doesn't pay to take chances by going it alone.

Common Causes of Slip and Fall Injuries

There are countless factors that can initiate a fall injury. Here are some that are frequently attributed to negligence on the part of property owners:

Caution Wet Floor sign

Liquid Spills

We have all seen spills in grocery store aisles due to dropped milk cartons, jelly jars, and other inventory. The property owner is responsible for having a staff trained to look out for these hazards, clean them as soon as possible after they occur, and place signs warning of the resulting wet floor.

Uneven concrete

Uneven Flooring

Floorboards can become warped over time, and brick walkways can become treacherous after years of weather and other factors. In either scenario, it's all too easy to trip and fall.

Power Cords

Power Cords

When any kind of remodeling, construction, or other developments are underway, power tools and other equipment requiring long power cords laying in areas of foot traffic can easily result in a trip, fall, and serious injury.

Poor lighting in darkened workshop

Poor Lighting

Certain avenues of foot traffic - especially steps or stairways - need adequate lighting in order for visitors to find their footing and avoid suffering a catastrophic fall injury.
