Slip and Fall Attorney in El Paso

Slip and Fall AccidentWhen property owners are negligent and dangerous conditions lead to a slip and fall accident, these owners must be held liable for the harm that results. A slip and fall accident often has devastating consequences for the injured. Depending on the nature of the injuries, the injured party may be unable to return to work for weeks and may suffer from chronic pain for many years. Slip and fall injuries are the most common examples of premises liability. Slipping and hitting the hard ground can lead to serious injuries and, in some rare cases, even death. Slip and fall accidents may seem inconsequential but they can lead to disastrous outcomes. The Aranda Law Firm is ready to help.

When Property Owners Are Liable

Slip and fall claims are most often brought against department stores, shopping malls, grocery stores, and other such entities. They may be brought against private citizens as well if the incident occurred in someone’s home. Property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe and free from hazards to maintain visitor safety. If they cannot remove a hazard, they must warn visitors to the property. For example, you have most likely seen “Wet Floor” signs in a grocery store. If the store cannot guarantee that the floor will be dry, it must warn shoppers that the floor is slippery.

Examining An Accident

In a slip and fall claim, the timeline of the accident is closely examined. The longer a hazard was present on the property, the more likely it is that the property owner will be liable for injuries caused by that hazard. For example, consider a hotel; the hotel’s management has received several complaints that the railing in the stairwell is loose. However, the hotel fails to have the stairwell repaired, and it does not place any signs in the stairwell that warn guests that the railing is loose. If a hotel guest falls and injures himself because the railing was unsteady, that guest will likely recover damages from the hotel.

A personal injury or slip and fall attorney will be able to examine the facts of the claim to determine the extent of the property owner’s liability. If the property owner is liable, the victim may be able to recover monetary damages.
