Slip and Fall Accidents: What You Need to Know

April 29, 2022

Slip and fall accidents can happen to anyone at any time. All it takes is for someone to slip and fall on a wet floor or trip on an uneven surface, and suddenly they are injured. These accidents can be very dangerous, especially if the person falls from a high height. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident caused by someone else’s negligence, don’t wait to reach out for legal help. An experienced Kentucky slip and fall accident attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Do I Have a Slip & Fall Case?

To have a slip and fall accident claim, you usually must prove that the property owner was negligent in some way. This means that they did not take the proper precautions to ensure your safety, or they did not fix a dangerous condition on their property. If you can prove that the property owner was negligent, then you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries.

The following elements should be present for a successful slip and fall claim:

  • The property owner was aware of the dangerous condition on their property;
  • The property owner did not take steps to fix the hazardous condition;
  • You were injured as a result of the dangerous condition.
  • If you can prove these elements, you may have a successful slip and fall accident claim.

What Should I Do If I Slip And Fall On Someone Else’s Property?

If you are injured from a slip and fall on someone else’s property, you should first seek medical attention. This is important not only for your health but also because you will need documentation of your injuries to support your claim. Once you have seen a doctor, you should reach out to an experienced slip and fall accident attorney. They will be able to review your case and help you understand your legal options.

What Are The Most Common Causes Of Slip And Fall Accidents?
