Everything You Need to Know When Pursuing a Slip and Fall Case

We all know a slip and fall case when we see one. It all starts with someone doing a commonplace activity such as grocery shopping, browsing at the mall, or heading into work for the day. Then, in the blink of an eye, the person slips and falls, tumbling down to the ground. While the majority of times these public places have those bright yellow signs with the cartoon person on it, slip and falls are considered slip and fall because of the lack of these signs. And rightfully so. After all, no one would knowingly walk into a wet floor. This situation is so easy to prevent, yet, so many companies face a lawsuit every year because of instances just like this one. While many slip and falls result in more embarrassment than injury, there remain to be too many cases where people are seriously harmed. If you or a loved one find yourself in this situation where a slip and fall has injured you in any way, you may want to consider pursuing a slip and fall case. Our team here at Cameron Law Group are seasoned experts when it comes to all kinds of injury law, including slip and falls. This experience makes us able to get you the justice and reparations you deserve. But first, you probably want to learn a little bit more about slip and fall cases, so keep reading below.

What is the Foundation of a Slip and Fall Lawsuit?

This is a common question we get, and we completely understand as every slip and fall situation is different. There are no two cases that are identical to one another. However, every case has one thing in common: the property owner was negligent. If this wasn’t the case then you would not need a lawsuit because that little yellow sign would have been out on display. Whether a company employee is to blame or a manager is to blame, it all falls on the property owner. But before pursuing a lawsuit against the company, you are going to want to consider a few things:

– Did your fall result in an injury?
– Was a sign or some form of warning present or given?
– Did the owner acknowledge the damaged or dangerous surface?

While you do not need to have 100% of the information, the more you know the better for your lawsuit. If any of your answers to these questions present carelessness on the owner’s part then you are likely to have a great foundation for your lawsuit.

What are the Results of a Slip and Fall Lawsuit?

The results of a lawsuit are always going to be different depending on the evidence provided and your situation. Although, most slip and fall cases that can prove carelessness result in the victim receiving a large sum of money. Money is usually the reparations as it is the only way for the victim to pay off any medical bills they may have had because of the slip and fall. This large sum of money is also a great way to prevent any incidents from happening again at the company. The company will feel the brunt of the profit loss and feel more inclined to crack down on safety precautions and regulations. This is also great for other businesses. Making an example out of one company can show other companies that this could happen to them too if they are irresponsible. Slip and falls are no joke and can result in someone being seriously injured, they should be treated seriously.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a slip and fall incident then it’s time you seek justice. You should not have to pay for your medical bills, time taken off from work, and any other disruptions to everyday life for something that could have been easily prevented. Companies should own up to their mistakes and ensure the victim can recover from the incident. To start your lawsuit, you are going to need an attorney from Cameron Law Group to assist you.
