When you are involved in a slip and fall accident, there are several key factors that determine whether you have a valid case and can seek compensation for your injuries. First and foremost, it is important to establish that the property owner or occupier was responsible for maintaining the property in a reasonably safe condition. This can be done by gathering evidence, such as pictures of the hazard, eyewitness statements, and maintenance records.
Next, it is important to show that the property owner or occupier failed to take appropriate measures to correct the hazard, or failed to adequately warn you of the danger. This can be proven by demonstrating that the hazard was present for a significant amount of time, or that similar accidents have occurred in the past.
Finally, you must be able to show that your injuries were a direct result of the property owner or occupier’s negligence. This can be done by obtaining medical records and having your doctor testify as to the extent and cause of your injuries.
At Mory & Colliersmith, PLLC, we have the experience and knowledge necessary to build a strong case on your behalf. We will work tirelessly to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve for your slip and fall injuries, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
