Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere: in the grocery store, on a wet floor in the hallway, on a poorly lit staircase, or on someone’s property. The most important step you can take in any slip and fall accident is to contact an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you build a strong case. To have a successful slip and fall accident claim, you will need an attorney who can prove that a property owner’s negligence was the cause of dangerous conditions.
At the Law Office of David S. Adams in Olathe, I represent clients throughout Johnson County, Kansas, for personal injury claims arising out of slip and fall accidents. Since most slip and fall accidents occur from premises liability issues, certain factors must be established to begin a case:
There has to be an owner and proof of the premises.
It must be established that an accident took place on the owner’s property.
All injuries must be the direct result of the property owner’s negligence of the premises.
An experienced slip and fall attorney will work with accident reconstruction experts, who can prove that your injuries were the result of improper conditions on the premises of another party. Slip and fall cases are categorized under premises liability law. Under this area of the law, the property manager or premises owner is responsible for ensuring there are no unsafe conditions on the property that could result in the injury or death of a visitor, resident, patron, or worker.
It is vital that you contact an experienced slip and fall attorney immediately so that the accident site can be examined and any relevant key evidence gathered to establish negligence. Although a slip and fall accident might not sound as serious as other types of personal injury accidents, the medical expenses, pain, and recovery time can take a heavy toll, both physically and financially, on the victim.
An experienced slip and fall attorney will examine your relevant medical records to calculate both your current and future medical costs as well as rehabilitation expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages.
