Who’s at Fault for My Slip-and-Fall Accident?

While a slip-and-fall accident may not seem especially serious, even a minor fall can lead to serious injuries. When you’ve suffered severe injuries, you need compensation to pay for treatment and you could have grounds for a lawsuit. But in order to sue, you need to know who’s at fault for your slip-and-fall accident. 

At the Henry Dailey Law Firm, we understand how difficult it can be to sue for a slip-and-fall injury when you’re unsure who’s liable. Fortunately, our lawyers are here to help you identify the at-fault party and make your life easier by holding them accountable while you focus on recovering. 

Property Owners Are Liable 

If you’ve been injured on someone else’s property, your injuries may be the fault of the property owner. Even if no other person was present, or if someone else directly harmed you, the fault could lie with a failure to repair something, a failure to warn about a hazard, or even a failure to offer reasonable security to protect the safety of residents and visitors. 

Because of this, your lawyer may turn to the property owner when seeking out the liable party. Reach out to your lawyer to determine who’s at fault for these injuries and what you can do to recover. 

What If an Employee Caused My Injuries? 

Let’s say you were shopping at the grocery store, and you slipped and fell. Now you’re suffering from a hurt back or worse, a brain injury because a clerk spilled olive oil, but failed to clean it up or warn you with signage about the danger. In that case, they should be responsible, right? The answer is generally no. 

While a clerk or other employee may have caused the accident, they’re not usually liable for your injuries and suffering. Employees are still the responsibility of the employer or property owner. They’re liable for hiring employees that acted recklessly with your safety. If you’re not sure how to determine fault, reach out to your lawyer about the details of your claim. 

Hurt? Call a Slip-and-Fall Lawyer 

When you’re hurt in a slip-and-fall accident, contacting a lawyer can help you kick-start your claim and get compensated fairly. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy to get the funds you’re due. You may be unfairly denied, or the at-fault party may try to deny they are liable. 

When this happens, the lawyers at the Henry Dailey Law Firm can help your claim succeed. We make filing a claim, identifying the at-fault party, and getting the money you’re due easy. You can make your claim even easier by seeking out a free consultation from our lawyers. All you have to do is call 205-995-2412 or fill out the following online contact form.
