When someone is injured in a fall as a result of a slip or trip on someone else’s property, the injured person is not automatically entitled to compensation. Generally, we need to prove that: 1) there was an unsafe condition that created an unreasonable risk of harm; 2) the party responsible for the area either knew or should have known about the unsafe condition; and 3) the responsible party failed to fix or give adequate notice of the unsafe condition.
Insurance companies are quick to suggest that the injured person contributed to his or her own injuries by failing to use reasonable care. The description of the facts and circumstances surrounding your slip/trip and fall can be crucial to the outcome of your case. Check out the video and give us a call.
