Slip and Fall Compensation
If you have been hurt in a fall due to someone else’s negligence, you may have a claim. Here is what you need to know about slip and fall compensation and if you may be eligible. These injuries can leave you unable to return to work resulting in loss of wages and ability to provide for your family.
Slip and Fall Compensation | Valid Claims
When a person is using someone else’s property in the intended fashion, and ends up injured, it may result in a lawsuit. If, for example, a slippery surface on the floor of a store causes a fall and a back injury or head injury, the injured person may be able to file a lawsuit. The elderly are particularly vulnerable to slip and fall injuries, and organizations catering to seniors must take extra precautions.
Some slip and fall injuries are not covered by premises liability laws. Work related injuries, for example, are covered by workers’ compensation. And the laws are complex when it comes to icy surfaces or uneven sidewalks. If you are unsure whether you have a case, it is best to just ask a knowledgeable attorney.
