Slip and Fall Accidents in Arizona
What is a slip and fall accident? A slip and fall accident happens when an individual is injured by falling over an object or slipping on someone else’s property. However, as personal injury slip and fall attorneys we not only help people who are injured in falls, but we also help people who are injured by falling objects from store shelves or who are injured in any manner on the premises of others.
How are slip and fall accident cases evaluated? A personal injury slip and fall attorney must prove that the incident involved an unreasonably dangerous condition (a condition that puts someone else into danger) and that that condition was not obvious to you.
Example: When you slip and fall because of a leaking soda machine that caused the floor to be wet with no warning signs. As a personal injury slip and fall attorney, we must be able to prove that the machine owner and/or store wither knew or should have known about the leak which caused you to slip and fall.
Do you have a slip and fall case? Possibly. As discussed above a personal injury slip and fall attorney must look for a mechanism that caused the incident. These case types require a substantive investigation to determine this mechanism.
Common cases that usually cannot be resolved: Incidents that could have been "avoided".
Common cases that can usually be resolved: Leaky soda machines, leaky cooler/air conditioner machines, water around ice machines or in areas where the store is aware of a likelihood of liquid on the floor, leaky roofs, or when a large object falls of a shelf from above and results in an injury. These are just a few examples of slip and fall or “premises liability” cases. If you have been hurt on someone else’s property you should call a personal injury attorney immediately and have your case evaluated.
