Proving Fault & Liability for Your Slip, Trip and Fall Injury Claim
Property owners have a legal obligation to maintain their property and keep visitors safe from unreasonable risk or harm. If a potential hazard exists, the property owner must take quick action to correct the problem and, in the interim, provide clear warning of the hazard.
For example, if someone spills liquid on a tile floor, the property owner or manager must clean it up as soon as reasonably possible. Until they do, however, they must place barricades, rope off the area, or otherwise warn visitors of the problem. If they fail to do so and someone gets hurt, they may have liability for the resulting damages.
Our legal team investigates your case to determine who had fault. To prove liability, we demonstrate the following elements:
- Duty of care – the at-fault party (for example the property owner) owed you a duty to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition
- Breach of duty – through wrongful or negligent actions, the at-fault party breached his duty of care and put your safety at risk
- Causation – if you slipped, fell, and sustained injuries because the at-fault party breached their duty of care, they are liable for all actual damages
- Actual damages – actual damages may be economic and non-economic, including physical and emotional damages.
To support your case, we will obtain evidence and documentation such as:
- Accident reports
- Accident scene photos
- Surveillance video
- Witnesses statements
- Owner & facility safety records
- Medical records
- Wage statements
To support your claim, we may use expert testimony, accident reconstructions, or any other evidence necessary to build a strong case on your behalf.
Calculating Slip and Fall Injury Claim Value
Once our legal team determines fault and establishes liability, we calculate the value of your claim based on the actual damages you sustained. You may have the legal right to recover damages such as the following:
- Medical treatment costs to date
- At-home or residential care
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Assistive devices and accessibility modifications
- Lost income and benefits to date
- Direct costs and out-of-pocket expenses
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
The nature of slip and fall injuries are such that you may require future treatment and care. Your injuries may prevent you from returning to work for weeks or months, or you may be unable to resume your old job duties. In that case, we may include the following in your claim’s value:
- Projected cost of future treatment and care
- Diminished quality of life
- Estimated value of future income and benefits losses
- Diminished earning capacity
- Permanent injury or disability
To support your claim, we use medical records, relevant expert opinions, and other evidence as necessary.
