Frequently Asked Questions About Slip-And-Fall Accidents

Attorney Devon Reiff wants our clients to understand the nuances of their slip-and-fall accident claims so they can make informed decisions. Here are some of the questions he hears most:

What do I need to prove to win a slip-and-fall case?

Slip-and-fall claims are just like any other premises liability claim. In general, you have to show that a property owner somehow breached their duty of care to ensure that their property was reasonably safe for visitors. This involves demonstrating that the owner knew (or should have known) about the dangerous condition and did nothing to rectify it. You must also show a clear link between the lack of care and your fall.

Who do I pursue in a slip-and-fall case?

Several people or entities may be liable in slip-and-fall cases. You may have a claim against the property owner, whether that is a private homeowner, a business or a government entity. You may also have a claim against a property management company or a third-party maintenance company that was hired to manage and maintain the property. Tenants and commercial renters may also be liable.

What are my options if I slip and fall at work?

If your slip-and-fall accident occurred while you were at work, your only recourse against your employer is likely to be workers’ compensation. However, if your slip and fall was caused by a third party’s negligence, such as an accident caused by a vendor or a maintenance company, you could pursue a traditional personal injury claim against that party.

How much is a slip-and-fall case worth?

Every claim is different. You can be compensated for both your economic losses (such as medical bills and lost wages) and noneconomic losses (such as pain and suffering), but each claim is valued based on the extent of your damages.

What should I do if an insurance company offers me a slip-and-fall settlement?

Hit the brakes hard. Insurance companies aren’t in the business of offering fair settlements. They want to close claims as quickly and cheaply as possible. You need experienced legal guidance to negotiate a fair settlement.
