Slip and fall accidents are one of the most difficult cases to win. Many attorneys will not take them because it is difficult to prove liability. The key to obtaining compensation in a slip and fall case is establishing that the accident was caused by the fault of another. An important first step is to establish that the owner, or those in charge of maintenance for the property, had prior notice of the dangerous condition that caused your slip and fall injury and did nothing about it. A thorough investigation will often reveal that the same property condition injured someone else in the past and the owner did nothing to correct the condition.
In one of the many slip and fall cases our firm has handled, a woman fell in a restaurant and severely injured her leg and ankle. Through discovery, our lawyers found that other people had been injured after slipping on the restaurant’s tiled floor. Because the owners were aware of that the condition of the floor created a hazard for customers, but had failed to repair it, we were able to obtain a significant settlement for our client.
