Holding Businesses Liable for Slip and Fall Accidents
When someone else is responsible for causing an injury, the law allows you to hold them liable for your medical bills and other losses. In some cases, the liable party is another individual though, for most slip and fall accidents, the liable party will be a business. Claims against businesses can often be challenging, so you should not wait to contact a slip and fall lawyer in Boca Raton if you suffered injuries.
Proving Liability for Your Slip and Fall
Companies want to increase their bottom line whenever they can, which means decreasing costs like insurance premiums. On top of that, insurance companies themselves want to increase profits by minimizing payments to claimants. This means that companies and their insurers will use many tactics to limit your settlement offer, including challenging whether the business was liable for the slip and fall.
To prove liability, you must prove the company was negligent in some manner. Companies can be negligent when they fail to keep their premises safe, and a customer or visitor gets hurt. Some conditions that may lead to liability for your slip and fall include:
- Wet floors
- Slippery flooring materials
- Not cleaning up items or liquid spilled on the ground
- Not warning customers if the floor may be wet or slippery
- Having carpets that can shift
- Not having anti-slip flooring on ramps or stairs
We can determine whether negligence led to your slip and fall and work to prove liability, so you receive the settlement you deserve.
