You could deserve compensation for your damages
If you’ve been hurt on someone else’s property, you could be eligible for compensation from the at-fault party and their insurance company. The damages you’re entitled to may include:
- Medical bills (ambulatory care, hospitalizations, physical therapy, medication, ongoing care, etc.)
- Lost income (for the income you have lost and will lose because of your injury)
- Pain, suffering, and all other non-economic damages
Slip and fall cases fall under premises liability law
You could deserve compensation if you sustained an injury on another person’s property. If your injury was the result of a dangerous or defective condition or building code violation, this is a premises liability claim. The owner of the property where the accident occurred is responsible.
Premises liability cases include slip and fall, trip and fall, slips on ice, and other personal injury lawsuits. These accidents can occur:
- On a sidewalk
- On a driveway
- In a home
- On a construction site
- In a grocery store or mall
- In a parking lot
- In any other building or structure
Common causes of dangerous property conditions that lead to slip and fall injuries include:
- Debris on the floor
- Wet or slick floors
- Ice and snow
- Broken stairs or loose flooring
- Broken or missing handrails
- Dimly lit walkways
- Uneven surfaces or holes

At the time of your slip and fall, you may not recognize the full extent of your injuries. You can’t know if they’re going to affect your ability to work or necessitate medical treatment and/or therapy in the days, weeks, and months ahead. Even seemingly small injuries can have a lasting impact. You need to protect yourself. Without legal guidance, you may not get the financial recovery you need.
Do I have a slip and fall case?
Whether or not you have a case depends on many factors. When you’re injured because of dangerous property conditions, you may be entitled to compensation, as long as the property owner can be deemed negligent and your injuries were serious enough to require medical treatment. Slip and fall claims can be complex, so you’ll maximize your chances of getting the payment you need when you hire an experienced slip and fall lawyer. To receive compensation, you’ll likely need to prove that the property owner should have been aware of the dangerous conditions and that they failed to address those dangerous conditions prior to your fall.
Proving that a slip and fall victim deserves payment from a property owner or the property owner’s insurance company takes time, investigation, research, and building a solid case based on relevant laws. As you can imagine, that’s hard to do without the help of an experienced lawyer.
