In some cases, the property owner and the injured person may share the liability for damages — one for allowing a hazard to exist, the other for not taking appropriate care. Your personal injury attorney can help you understand whether you have a case of premises liability, no liability, or shared liability (comparative negligence).

What caused the slip and fall accident?

In a supermarket, dried lettuce on the floor, a smashed grape or a leak from a refrigeration unit may cause a slip and fall. Should the victim have seen the problem? Did the manager have sufficient time to clean up the problem? Was the hazard allowed to exist for a long period of time?

In a department store or big box store, did a fork lift or cart leave a trail of oil that caused the slip and fall? Was debris left in the aisle causing a trip injury? Did a worker pushing a cartful of merchandise fail to see a shopper in the pathway? Our law firm will listen to your story and investigate the circumstances to determine if your have a premises liability case.
