Although a person can get severely injured in a slip/trip and fall accident, these types of cases can be hard to prove. We are not saying they are bad cases by any means. Insurance carriers almost always deny liability right out of the gate. The famous line is, “The injured person should have been more careful and paid more attention to their surroundings”. This is when we litigate!
The owner of the premises where the accident occurred and the injured party may both be responsible to a degree, which is otherwise known as comparative negligence. Although all individuals must use reasonable care, the premises, whether it be a retail store or a city street, must be maintained in a safe and proper manner.
