Being hurt due to a slip and fall injury is, unfortunately, a common occurrence.
Of course, when that fall is caused due to the negligence of a property owner and you are suffering serious, maybe even life-altering injuries as a result, you may need to make a claim against the property owner.
Negligence is often present with wet floors, unlit stairways and also includes construction or maintenance defects. In fact, many factors must be considered, such as determining the negligence of a business or property owner, and determining negligence, if any, of the individual injured. Other considerations include site visits to investigate the area, investigating prior complaints about an existing hazard, obtaining weather data and determining whether any witnesses need to be spoken with. These are only a few of the factors that a personal injury lawyer will analyze when investigating a slip and fall injury case.
