What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Slip and Fall Accidents

Posted on April 9th, 2009 No Comments

Slipping and falling is one of the most common types of injuries that occur. A common misconception is that we are strictly responsible for our own personal safety; if we slip and fall, it is our fault because we need to be watching where we are going. However, if you are on someone else’s property, they have a legal responsibility to ensure that their premises are safe for other people. If they fail to live up to this responsibility, they may be liable for any injuries which occur.

If you or a loved one have been injured while on someone else’s property, contact the Jacksonville slip and fall lawyer, Don Guthrie, P.A. at 904-296-1088, and we can determine liability and help you recover any damages you may be owed.

Fault in a Slip and Fall Accident

For a property owner to be liable for a slip and fall accident that occurs on their property, typically one of three factors must be present:
•    The property owner must be directly responsible for the hazardous condition which caused the slip and fall.
•    The property owner must have known or realized the hazardous condition was present, but did not take action to eliminate the risk.
•    The property owner should have known of the hazardous condition.
