Common factors in a slip and fall
The hazards that create slips, trips, and falls are not always obvious. In some cases, they are impossible to detect. To build a successful claim for monetary compensation, you must demonstrate that the hazard, which caused your injury, was not open and obvious. However, if it should have been clear to you that the danger existed, a jury is unlikely to award you damages. Some common hazards include:
- Loose carpet
- Broken steps
- Missing banisters
- Accumulated snow and ice
- Spilled food or drinks
- Uneven concrete
- Poor lighting
A defendant must also have a reasonable opportunity to address these hazards. If you slip and fall on a spilled drink seconds after it happens, your chances of compensation are lower. Alternatively, a spilled drink that was ignored by a property owner for hours could lead to a much stronger claim for compensation. A slip and fall attorney from Douglas & London could advise you on the viability of your claim.
No fee unless we collect
With every case like this, our firm works on a contingency basis. This means we will only recover a fee if we are successful. It’s a win-win situation for you. If we are unable to recover compensation on your behalf, you will walk away owing us nothing. If we succeed, we will keep a portion of your compensation as our fee. This arrangement will never change during the lawsuit, and we will never charge you surprise legal fees. We are dedicated to helping obtain monetary damages for your injuries and will always put your needs first.
