Most of our clients do not realize how challenging it is to win slip and fall cases. To be successful on a slip and fall case in Arizona, you must prove three things:
• That the business owner or property owner either knew or should have known about the dangerous condition
• That they failed to fix the dangerous condition or warn the public about the dangerous condition
• That you were injured by the dangerous condition
Our premises liability lawyers know that the law in Arizona favors the property owner. This can make bringing a claim very challenging for someone who has been injured. Furthermore, when someone slips and falls they can be severely injured. Our premises liability lawyers typically see insurance companies that do not want to pay out what is required to make the injured party whole again. Because of this, you need experienced Phoenix slip and fall attorneys like those at Zanes Law. We will investigate your claim and force the at-fault party to compensate you fairly.
Although many people fall and jump right back up, slip and falls can cause serious injuries. Sure, we’ve all fallen down and simply been startled. But we were the lucky ones. Maybe we were a little embarrassed and a little sore the next day, but we just moved on without a problem. What about the person who breaks a bone or suffers a severe head injury? That person must call the Zanes Law premises liability lawyers.
When you think about it logically, a person who falls down has very little control over how they land and what hits the ground. As you begin to tumble over, you don’t have much time to react and to protect yourself. Even worse, sometimes when you are able to put out an arm to break your fall, you break that arm!
It is these serious injuries that require immediate medical attention. In addition, slip and fall accidents are the third leading cause of accidental death. The serious injuries that may result from slips and falls include:
In short, a traumatic brain injury is a head injury. It is often diagnosed as a concussion and can be referred to as a “TBI”. You end up with a TBI when you either hit your head on something or the force of the fall jolts your head hard enough to injure your brain. When this happens the head injury can range from mild to severe, but all head injury can create both cognitive problems and memory problems for the injured victim. Even a mild concussion requires medical care, and more severe head injuries sometimes require extended medical treatment to address ongoing physical issues, behavioral problems, and cognitive deficiencies.
It is easy to understand why a person can break a bone when they slip and fall. But many bone breaks require surgery and long-term rehabilitation. They can be serious injuries requiring expensive medical care. In addition to this, many people are unable to work after breaking a bone and having surgery because of the pain and other limitations caused by the injury. Finally, many injured victims never completely recover from their surgical repair and have long lasting deficiencies and, sometimes, disabilities.
A soft-tissue injury is when you injure muscles, ligaments, and tendons. It is easy to understand how one can receive soft tissue injuries in a slip and fall accident. When you fall you often twist and stretch body parts in ways that they were not meant to move. This cases strains, sprains, and muscle tears. Two examples of soft tissue injuries are torn ligaments in a knee or a torn bicep tendon, both of which require surgery to fix. Soft tissue injuries can be just as significant and severe as broken bones and other serious injuries.
Many times when a person is involved in a slip and fall accident, the accident victim will injure his neck and back by twisting them in awkward ways. This torque can injure a person’s disks and can injure the soft tissues that support the neck and back. These injuries both can cause serious pain and can certainly limit a person’s mobility. These soft tissue injuries can also lead to headaches, numbness in the extremities, shooting pain in the extremities, sleeping problems, and other issues. It is all of these problems that can limit your ability to work and do the day-to-day activities that you either must do or enjoy doing.
A spinal cord injury is the most serious type of neck or back injury. A spinal cord injury can range from a severed spine caused by the fall to a bilging or herniated disk. Although these two injuries are on opposite ends of the severity scale, both could require surgery, hospitalization, and months to years of rehabilitation.
Discussed above are just some of the injuries that can be caused by an unexpected slip and fall. But they can all change a person’s life forever. Because of this the Zanes Law Phoenix slip and fall accident attorneys are here to help. We know that any of these injuries can result in overwhelming losses, including:
• Medical bills – both for treatments received and for future medical needs
• Lost wages and lost future earnings
• Pain and suffering
• Emotional tole created by being injured
• Having to deal with any permeant impairments or disabilities
Since these loses can be significant, you need an experienced attorney who is willing to fight for you. The Phoenix slip and fall attorneys at Zanes Law understand how to fight for maximum compensation for every one of their clients.
To be paid for your slip and fall injuries, you will be required to show that the property owner was negligent and that this negligence led to your injury. In a slip and fall accident, we usually see negligence when the below criteria are met:
• There is a business or property owner who has a responsibility to keep keep his premises safe for customers or visitors; and
• The business owner or property owner fails to keep their property safe; and
• it is this failure that led to your slip and fall; and
• You were injured when you fell.
A property owner can be responsible for your slip and fall under many different scenarios, but most of the time it is when they allow a hazard to exist that the owner could have fixed. Many slip and falls are caused by an owners failure to repair or remediate the following:
• Wet or slippery floors
• Walkway obstacles
• Carpet or flooring
• Ramps or stairs
• Failure to warn customers or visitors hazards that can’t be quickly fixed
A property owner can be responsible in a slip and fall case either because he know about the dangerous condition or because he should have known about the dangerous condition, and then either failed to remedy it or warn the customers about it.
Much of the time and owner will claim they could not have known about the hazard when they should have known about and fixed it. The Phoenix premises liability lawyers at Zanes Law know how to prove liability in even the most contested cases.
