What Is a Slip and Fall Case?
This type of case arises from a severe injury suffered on an unsafe property. There is a shared responsibility of both business owners and homeowners alike to warn you of hazards or dangerous areas, such as construction areas, slippery floors, or rickety railings. However, if you do not exercise caution when you have been warned of risks, your case could be denied. North Carolina is among a handful of states that consider contributory negligence. If you are more than one percent at fault, your case can be denied. That is a vital reason you need an experienced slip and fall attorney.
Common Slip and Fall Scenarios
Portions of the property being renovated or repaired should be marked clearly, and all areas outside of the marked work zone should be free of debris. Inventory stocked on floor-level shelves should be secure and stacked in a way that keeps aisles free of tripping hazards. Wet floors and spills should be cordoned off until the area is completely dried. Uneven tiles and loose carpet edges should be marked and blocked off.
Don’t Hesitate to Call
One of the biggest misconceptions that people have about slip and fall incidents is that they are frivolous lawsuits. Many clients are often afraid to get in touch with a slip and fall attorney because they are worried that they will be criticized. However, we know these injuries are real, damaging, and lingering. Dislocated shoulders, fractured ankles, broken wrists, cracked kneecaps, broken ribs, and fractured skulls are common. They can render you unable to work and leave you in chronic pain. Do not allow yourself to be discouraged by the court of public opinion! We are accident lawyers, and we take all injuries related to others’ negligence very seriously. We may be able to get compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Property damages
- Permanent injuries
- Loss of use of a body part
- Loss of consortium (companionship)
- Punitive damages
Victims of dangerous premises are sometimes able to pursue punitive damages from the property owners responsible for their injuries and losses. Punitive damages are additional monies that can be awarded if a property owner was knowingly or even deliberately negligent. There is no reason to suffer in silence following injuries on a dangerous premise. Speak with a slip and fall attorney from The Olive Law Firm and learn your rights. We may be able to help you face the future more confidently.
