Slip and Fall Accident Causes

MMDAF awards_logo1Arizona expects residential and commercial property owners to maintain a safe property for all visitors. When property owners fail to uphold this legal duty of care, they may be liable for any damages.

Slip and fall injuries come from many causes including, but not limited to:

  • Loose floorboards
  • Failure to warn visitors of a slippery floor
  • Dangerous obstacles
  • Loose wires and cords
  • Uneven floors
  • Improper lighting

When you slip and fall on a floor, you may suffer lacerations, broken bones, facial injuries, head and neck injuries, spinal injuries, or even paralysis. It is also possible that your injuries can be severe enough to result in death.

Premise Liability Requirements

Tucson Metro Chamber awards_logo2A property owner holds a legal duty of care to maintain a property that is safe and free from any hazards. If there are any known hazards, then it is the property owner’s responsibility to notify visitors.

To demonstrate that premise liability is present, we must identify the following four elements of personal injury:

  • Duty of care: The property owner held a legal duty of care to the property visitor.
  • Breach of duty: The property owner was negligent in a way that breached that duty of care.
  • Causation: The negligent action was the cause of the accident.
  • Damages: There were actual damages as a result of the accident.

We must demonstrate that the property owner, tenant, landowner, or homeowner was aware of the danger and did nothing to correct it or to notify the visitor of the danger.

Exceptions To Premise Liability

In most cases, to collect compensation under premise liability laws, the injured party must have been lawfully visiting the property. Otherwise, if they were trespassing, it is possible that the owner will not be liable for the damages.

Arizona’s Pure Comparative Negligence Laws

It is also possible that more than one party can be to blame in a slip and fall case. Fortunately, under Arizona’s pure comparative negligence laws, we can still recover compensation for any portion of the accident that the other party is responsible for.

Arizona’s Slip and Fall Filing Time Limits

AzTLA awards_logo4Arizona limits the time in which we can file a slip and fall case to just two years from the date of the accident. It is very rare that they will extend this time limit so it is crucial that you discuss your slip and fall case with a lawyer as soon as possible.
