Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall cases involve accidents that usually result from a loss of footing while present on a third party’s property. In some cases, you can file a premises liability lawsuit against whoever owned or managed the property at the time of the accident. Some injuries stemming from a slip and fall accident can cause significant pain and generate exorbitant medical bills.

If you become a victim of a slip-and-fall accident, you may not need to pay for your medical treatment out of your own pocket. Hire experienced slip and fall accident lawyers to protect your financial future. If you can prove that the defendant property owner did not take reasonable steps to provide a safe environment, you may receive full and fair compensation.

Common Causes of a Slip and Fall

Casino guests slip and fall for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes of a slip and fall in a casino include:

    • Uneven tiles or wood flooring.
    • Torn carpeting.
    • Inebriated casino guests.
    • Poor lighting.
    • Reckless personnel.
    • Steep, narrow stairs.
    • Pipe leaks, spilled beverages, and other liquids.

Elements of a Valid Slip and Fall Claim

Should your case go to court, you will need to prove the elements of a slip and fall case. The essential elements of a valid slip and fall claim include:

    • The defendant owned or managed the premises at the time of the accident.
    • The plaintiff was allowed access to the premises.
    • Hazardous conditions existed on the premises.
    • The defendant caused dangerous conditions or should have known about them.
    • Unsafe surroundings caused the plaintiff’s injury.

Compensable Damages for a Slip and Fall

Victims of a slip and fall may receive monetary damages for various expenses. Courts often award damages for the following:

    • Medical expenses
    • Slip and fall attorney charges
    • Cost of long-term medical services
    • Lost earnings
    • Loss of enjoyment and failure to perform daily activities
    • Loss of consortium
    • Mental health problems
    • Pain and suffering
    • Household expenses

What to Do When You Suffer a Slip and Fall

Many clients panic after suffering an injury and do not know how to protect themselves. If you experience a slip and fall injury, adhere to the following steps to strengthen your case against the defendant.

Step #1: See a Doctor

Before you do anything else, you should seek medical attention. A slip and fall can cause serious injuries, some of which do not cause any immediate symptoms. Moreover, when you file a claim and subsequent lawsuit against the defendant, you should provide your medical reports to help your slip and fall attorney prove your legal claim.

Step #2: Contact the Police and Complete an Incident Report

The second step involves contacting the police and filing a report of the accident. Slip and fall cases require a thorough review of the victim’s legal claims. Contacting the police will prompt them to investigate the accident scene and create a legal record, which may prove crucial to your legal slip and fall claim.

If the police will not come to the location of the slip and fall, make sure that you complete an incident report with security either at the time of the incident, or if your injuries do not allow you to do so, as soon as reasonably possible after you have received medical care. Make sure that you also request and receive a copy of your incident report from the property owner as it becomes more difficult to obtain this information once a claim is opened against the property owner.

Step #3: Gather Necessary Evidence and Witnesses

Collecting evidence includes taking pictures and videos of the accident scene, the injuries you sustained, and the cause of your slip and fall. You should also take statements and contact information from any witnesses to the accident. Finally, you should organize your medical bills and other records related to your visit, injuries, and the aftermath.

Step #4: Get in Touch With a Slip and Fall Attorney

Avoid legal pitfalls by working with experienced slip and fall accident attorneys. Ensure your slip and fall lawyer possesses all the information you gathered regarding your accident. Hire an experienced lawyer for a slip and fall claim before the statute of limitations bars you from filing a valid petition.
