Slip and Falls May Indicate Poor Property Management

Many slip-and-fall incidents occur in restaurants, businesses, and other public places, although any area with relatively high foot traffic and natural or manmade obstacles could harbor a slip-and-fall. Property owners are legally obligated to maintain the spaces they own with a certain standard of care.
When they don’t, accidents can, and often do happen. Poor or insufficient lighting, worn or damaged floors, slippery substances, and other obstacles that could and should have been fixed are examples of common property mismanagement claims. 

Proving Negligence in a Slip and Fall Claim

Proving a slip and fall accident wasn’t your fault can be difficult. You must be able to prove the business or property owner neglected to provide sufficient safety or warning measures, or knew about the danger and neglected to resolve it. You must also prove that you are not responsible for the accident.

Keep in mind that the extent of your own carelessness in the accident will be evaluated in a case to determine whether the property owner can really be held liable for the resulting damages.

Distractions like talking on a cell phone, ignoring or disregarding warning signs, and being somewhere you shouldn’t have been, could all be indicators of personal carelessness.

When proving your claim, we will discuss these issues and more to help you strengthen the validity of your slip and fall case.
