Slip and Fall Actions
A slip and fall action is a lawsuit filed by a personal injury lawyer on behalf of someone who has sustained bodily injury on someone else’s property. Slip and fall actions are more commonly referred to as personal injury lawsuits or complaints. There are certain elements that must be present for an attorney to file a slip and fall lawsuit. It isn’t sufficient to simply say that you fell in the lobby of a building owned by the defendant. Your attorney must be able to prove that the defendant was liable in some way. For example, the defendant may have failed to act in a reasonable manner to rectify a hazardous situation on the property.
Additionally, your attorney must demonstrate that as a direct result of the defendant’s neglectful or reckless actions, you sustained an injury. Slip and fall incidents can lead to injuries such as strains, sprains, fractures, and concussions. Your lawyer must also document your loss. The types of evidence introduced in court for slip and fall cases often includes bills for diagnostic tests and medical treatments.
