Slip and Fall Accidents in Phoenix
What is a slip and fall accident or a premises liability case? A slip and fall accident occurs when an individual is injured by falling over an object or slipping on someone else’s property. A premises liability claim occurs when a person is injured in any manner on someone else’s property. As Phoenix personal injury attorneys we help clients on both. Our Phoenix personal injury attorneys have represented clients on slip and fall cases, cases where our clients are injured by falling objects from store shelves, assault cases, shooting cases, and cases where our clients are injured in numerous other ways on the premises of others.
How are slip and fall accident cases evaluated? Our Phoenix personal injury slip and fall attorneys first must prove that the incident involved a condition that puts someone else into danger (unreasonably dangerous condition) and that that condition was not noticeable to the injured individual.
Example: Slipping and falling due to a leaking soda machine that caused a wet floor with no warning signs. As a Phoenix personal injury attorney, we must be able to prove that the machine owner and/or store either knew or should have known about the leak which caused you to slip and fall.
Do you have a slip and fall case? Perhaps. A Phoenix personal injury slip and fall attorney must investigate and look for a "mechanism" that caused the incident.
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 Phoenix personal injury slip and fall attorney immediately and have your case evaluated.
