If you were badly injured in a slip and fall accident as a result of someone else’s negligence, the slip and fall lawyers at Berger and Green can help you get what’s yours. Have you or a loved one suffered serious injuries due to a sudden and unexpected slip and fall? If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for your slip and fall injuries, compensation which may cover your medical bills, lost wages and subsequent medical treatment.
A personal has a general responsibility to be aware of his or her surroundings, but if you are injured on someone else’s property because of a hazard that the owner should have been aware of or was aware of and ignored, you may have the right to compensation for your injuries. Do not immediately assume the blame for your slip and fall accident. A slip and fall accident can be the fault of a negligent property owner.
The 7 Things You Must Prove to Win a Slip and Fall Injury Claim
You may have a claim for compensation for your injuries if you have suffered a slip and fall accident on a residential or business property due to:
- A hidden defect on the walking surface (such as a step that breaks)
- A significant drop off or elevation in a sidewalk (uneven slabs)
- Poorly lit walking area
- Ice formed by poor drainage conditions
- Ice and snow that was not cleared within a reasonable period after it has stopped accumulating
- Poorly designed property
- Commercial displays in your walkway
