Slip and Fall Lawyer in Scottsdale
Scottsdale Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help You Recover Damages
When a dangerous condition causes a slip and fall or trip and fall that
results in serious injury or death to a guest, customer or tenant of property
that belongs to another person or business, the owner of that property
may be liable (legally responsible) if it can be proven that his negligence
or recklessness was a cause of the injury or the death. If you or a family
member has been injured in such an incident at someone else's home
or business, and if it can be proven that the injury was the result of
that other person's negligence or recklessness, then you may be able
to bring a legal claim against that person and his insurance company to
recover the costs of your medical bills, lost earnings, pain, disfigurement,
emotional distress, permanent physical disability and any other economic
losses you have suffered.
Generally, in cases involving slip and fall accidents, the person injured
must prove that the property owner either failed to maintain the property,
created an unsafe condition which caused the injury, or knew about the
dangerous condition or hazard but failed to alert visitors or tenants
to this fact.
It may also be important to know whether or not the unsafe condition was
permanent or temporary. For example, in a situation where the hazard is
a slippery sidewalk due, in part, to a temporary weather change (such
as a sudden snow, rainstorm or ice buildup), the length of time the hazard existed
might have a bearing on the injured person's ability to prove negligence.
However, if the underlying walking surface was already known to be unsafe
DID snow, rain or get icy, then the property owner will likely be found negligent
for failing to take measures to safeguard the sidewalk in the event of
a sudden weather change.
