COMPENSATION FOR SLIP AND FALLS ON BUSINESS PREMISES
Premises liability is a big personal injury category that covers multiple kinds of events. Most people know about premises liability by its informal name, “slip and fall.”
Business owners have certain duties that they owe to others who enter their property. When you enter a property for the purpose connected to the owner’s business (such as shopping), the law classifies you as an invitee. Under this status, the property owner has a duty to reasonably inspect for, discover, and correct unknown hazards in any area an invitee may have access. If a shopper falls on spilled food in the middle of a restaurant, and it turns out that the food had been there for some time, the owner of the property can be sued for the costs of the injury: medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more.
If you were injured in a slip and fall incident, the process is similar to if you were injured in a car wreck. It isn’t always necessary to file a lawsuit, and we will work to settle your claim outside of a court room to ensure a more efficient resolution and to get you your financial compensation quicker. However, sometimes a lawsuit is needed and we have the training and knowledge necessary to present your case to the insurance company and to juries.
If you have been injured on someone else’s property, you may have a slip and fall claim. For a free evaluation, call us at (469) 328-8376 or fill out our contact form and we will reach out to you soon.
