Premises Liability (Slip and Fall)
No matter which state you live or work in, the regulations governing the conditions of a place of business, and the land upon which it sits, are pretty much uniform: property owners are required to keep these sites and land safe for its use by authorized businesses and visitors.
However, when such conditions are not upheld, it leaves room for accidents and injuries to take place. This is in turn called premises liability and covers a variety of case types to include electrocution injuries and slip and fall injuries.
When a slip and fall injury case is brought to us, one of the first things we do is question and investigate the maintenance of the property or environment in which you slipped and fell. Should we be able to uncover any negligence in these areas, we as personal injury lawyers can proceed with building a case around the fact that the property or business owner/operator did not properly use his or her premise to ensure an unreasonable amount of risk or harm was not present in their establishment or home.
Because of the complexity involved with determining liability in a slip and fall case, if you or a loved one is ever involved in a slip and fall accident where you were completely unaware of the hazardous conditions that led to your injury, you should be sure to:
Take photos of your injuries and the area where the slip and fall occurred
Avoid providing a recorded statement to an insurance adjuster
Obtain the names of the property owner/operator as well as any witnesses that were present
Seek medical assistance for any obvious and potential injuries
What Legal Rights Do I Have Following a Slip and Fall?
In Arizona, liability in a slip and fall injury case is primarily determined by the status of the individual who was injured. If it is determined that you were legally able to use or be on the property where the slip and fall accident took place, and the injury occurred based on hazardous conditions you were not aware of, then you have a case to bring forth.
Your legal rights will be upheld based on the obligation the property owner or operator had to ensure your safety.
