Establishing Liability for Slip and Fall Accidents

When a person is injured on property that belongs to another individual, a Brickell slip and fall lawyer must assess liability and establish who was responsible.

If a person is considered a trespasser or does not have permission to enter a property, that individual is only able to recover compensation for harm deliberately or willfully caused by the landowner.

A licensee is a person who enters a property despite the property not being open to the general public because the property owner had allowed the licensee to enter. A licensee is only able to recover damages caused by a landowner’s failure to exercise reasonable care in relation to dangers that the property owner either knew about or unreasonably failed to warn about. In contrast, an invitee is an individual who is invited onto land by the possessor of the land as a member of the public or a person who enters the land of another to engage in business.

For example, a licensee would be a friend entering someone’s house, while an invitee would be someone entering a store to do some shopping. Regardless of where your slip and fall occurred, one of the best actions to take immediately after incurring an injury is to contact a Brickell slip and fall lawyer.

Establishing Fault After a Slip and Fall Accident in Brickell

To establish fault after a slip and fall accident, there are three elements that must be satisfied:

  • The property owner must have had a duty of care to the person who entered the property
  • The property owner must have failed to meet this standard
  • As a result of the property owner’s breach of this standard, the victim has been harmed

Establishing fault in a slip and fall case is often difficult. The proof of burden lies with the accident victim in premise liability cases. This means that to hold someone accountable for injuries incurred in the slip and fall accident, it must be demonstrated the property owner caused the accident due to negligence. It must be demonstrated both that the property knew about the dangerous condition and failed to take reasonable measures to keep guests safe. After fault is established, a Brickell slip and fall lawyer can help to negotiate a settlement for your injuries, or if necessary, pursue a lawsuit.

Common Causes of Brickell Slip and Fall Accidents

Properties can have many dangerous features that lead to slip and fall accidents. Some of the various factors that can result in slip and fall accidents include the following:

  • Broken stairs
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Loose handrails
  • Missing caution signs
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Wet floors

Regardless of the cause, slip and fall victims can find themselves facing various severe injuries. To make matters even more frustrating, accident victims often have no idea whom to hold accountable or who is responsible for maintaining the property. This is why a Brickell slip and fall lawyer will do everything possible to find the at-fault party and hold them accountable for paying the maximum amount of compensation possible.
