Injured from falling? Call BNI Law.
If you or someone you know has been injured from falling, particularly in a publicly accessible place you may be entitled to compensation. BNI Law wants to help.
Knowing what your options are when injured from falling, or any other unexpected accident resulting in injury can be difficult for that outside of the legal field. It’s important to remember that when your hurt- the first thing you should do is get a proper medical evaluation. After that call BNI Law to discuss your next course of action.
You’ll need ait in fighting the legal battle of proving that you’re entitled to compensation for the injury. Firstly you’ll need to prove that there were dangerous conditions on another party’s property that resulted in the inquiry. Some of these Dangerous conditions include but are not limited to torn carpeting, abrupt changes or unevenness in flooring, poor lighting, narrow stairs, or wet and slippery floor. Additionally many times it has to be shown that the conditions were known by the property owner, but neglected and allowed to remain, causing a dangerous situation.
BNI Law is here to help you deal with these types of cases, as nobody should attempt to fight this type of case without legal aid. These cases technically fall under the category of “premises liability”. Premises liability has to do with a given property owner’s responsibility to care for the property and the consequences that result from neglecting to properly do so. In order to win one of these cases, the claimant is responsible for proving beyond the shadows of reasonable doubt that such a dangerous circumstance existed, and that the property owners or managers could have absolutely resolved, or made the area inaccessible with a clear indication of danger.
Keep in mind that cataclysmic and random events might not be considered premises liability circumstances. For example, if you are walking down the walkway of a plaza and the wind blows a random object such as a stick into your path, you might trip and get injured. However, proving that the stick came from an unpainted tree on the property, which tree, and ultimately that this is the Plaza owner’s responsibility might be impossible.
Some additional circumstances that fall under property negligence that could result in a slip and fall might include structural defects such as potholes, cracked sidewalks, or broken tiles, or even weather-related accidents, although these are harder cases for injured claimants. Although landowners are expected to take steps to reduce hazards created by weather, like shoveling snow, salting icy spots, or installing anti-slip devices, sometimes they don’t have a reasonable opportunity to correct the problem.
