When Unsafe Conditions Cause Injury

Slipping, tripping, or falling may seem insignificant, but even a minor slip and fall can cause a serious injury. Although not every accident justifies legal action, you should not hesitate to explore your legal options if you were seriously injured. If your injury required medical treatment, prevents you from earning a living, or interferes with your daily life, you may want to seek legal advice.

Some of the most common slip and fall injuries include:

  • Sprains
  • Fractures
  • Head injuries
  • Hip fractures
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries

    Simply falling on someone's property is not enough to warrant a lawsuit. However, if the conditions of the property were unsafe, you deserve to seek compensation for your damages. In order to prevail, your Gainesville slip and fall lawyer will need to show that a dangerous condition existed on the property, that the property owner was aware of the unsafe condition, and that they failed to take appropriate action to prevent injury.

    Proving Liability in Slip and Fall Cases

    There are a few hurdles for slip and fall cases. One is the statute of limitations, which states that lawsuits must be filed within two years of the date of injury. The other is the comparative negligence law, which is a tactic often used by property owners to place some of the blame on the victim. This is important because if you are found to be negligent, your award will be reduced by the percentage of your blame. For example, if you are found to be 25 percent at fault, your award will be reduced by this percentage.

    At Hasty Pope, our experienced Gainesville slip and fall lawyers have extensive experience aggressively pursuing compensation on behalf of injured victims. We are not afraid to do what it takes to represent you and fight for justice.

    We encourage you to call (770) 741-1951 to schedule a consultation as soon as possible so that we can get to work on your case.
