The Role of Premises Liability
Most slip and fall accidents are considered premises liability cases and deal with the duties and responsibilities property owners have to ensure a safe space for visitors. Unfortunately, it is increasingly difficult to recover fair compensation for an injury on another person’s or business’ property.
Having an experienced Palm Beach Gardens slip and fall attorney on your side is essential in recovering fair and just compensation after this type of accident.
In order to prove that a property owner’s negligence caused your injuries, the slip and fall accident victim must demonstrate that:
- A dangerous condition existed on the owner’s property
- The property owner knew about the danger, yet did not correct it
- The condition existed for a long enough period of time that a reasonable property owner should have discovered the condition and fixed it
- Your injuries were directly caused by the dangerous condition
The victim’s own carelessness in contributing to the accident will also be taken into account when determining liability in the case. For example, if there was a clear and present danger directly in front of you, but you did not take any measures to avoid it, you may be held partially accountable for the accident. This can limit the amount of compensation you are able to recover.
After an accident, it is imperative that you contact our Palm Beach Gardens slip and fall attorneys so our team can begin investigating your claim to determine how the accident happened and who should be liable for your injuries.
