When you are considering which law firm should take on your slip and fall accident claim, here are a few reasons to go with Torgenson Law:
After your slip and fall accident, your lawyer will need to closely examine the details of your case to determine who is at fault for your injuries. In the vast majority of slip and fall accident cases, the property owner of the property where you fell will share blame for your injuries.
This is because property owners owe their invited guests and patrons a duty of care. Failure to uphold that duty of care amounts to negligence. If a property owner is found negligent, they could be held accountable for the victim’s slip and fall injuries.
There are many causes of slip and fall accidents a property owner can be held accountable for, including:
It should be noted that property owners are often able to escape culpability for slip and fall accident injuries. There are a couple of different ways that they can do this.
The first is by proving that they did not owe the injury victim a duty of care. Under the law, property owners only owe their invited guests and patrons a duty of care. This means that anyone who is trespassing or committing a crime at the time of their injuries may not be able to file a lawsuit against the property owner.
Property owners also cannot be held accountable for hazardous conditions that are open and obvious. For example, if a restaurant put a wet floor sign up around a spilled beverage, a patron who was injured in a slip and fall after ignoring the sign could not win a case against the restaurant or the restaurant owner.
When a property owner has failed to uphold their duty of care, and you suffer traumatic injuries as a result of this negligence, you have the right to financial compensation.
