Slip & fall accidents are covered under the state’s premises liability laws. These statutes are a little more complicated than ones governing car crashes, so it can be difficult to know if you have a case or not.
The nature of your visit comes into play with these cases. If you were invited onto the property and that visit benefits you and the property owner, the owner must warn you of any potential hazards they know about.
They must also warn you about any hazards that could be revealed by a reasonable inspection.
If you’re visiting the property solely for your own benefit, the property owner only has a duty to inform you of any hazards they know about.
You can claim damages for a variety of accidents and incidents on someone else’s property, including:
Grocery stores are notorious for slipping hazards from vegetables, condensation, and spills. If the store knew about the hazard and failed to warn you, you may have a case.
There are lots of potential ways to get hurt at a restaurant, including slips, falls, and more. We’ll go over the details of your accident to determine if you have a case.
The interior and exterior of shopping centers can pose plenty of dangers to visitors, including cracked sidewalks, slippery floors, and more.
There are defined laws about workplace safety, and employers who violate those codes can be held liable for hurting their employees and visitors.
If you’re in a person’s home, they still have an obligation to inform you of potential hazards. If they don’t, you may have cause for a personal injury case.
