Defining Slip and Falls

A slip and fall accident, as the name suggests, occurs when an individual slips, trips, or falls due to hazardous conditions on someone else’s property. These hazardous conditions can include wet or slippery surfaces, uneven or broken flooring, inadequate lighting, cluttered walkways, or even hidden hazards like loose cables or potholes. 

These accidents can happen anywhere, from grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping malls to sidewalks, parking lots, and private residences. The potential for serious injuries resulting from slip and fall accidents highlights the need for property owners to maintain safe premises and for individuals to remain vigilant in identifying and avoiding such hazards.

Types of Slip and Fall Injuries

Slip and fall accidents can result in a variety of injuries that range in severity. Common injuries from slip and fall accidents include:

  • Fractures
  • Sprains
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries

Factors that affect the severity of these injuries include the height from which the person falls and the type of surface they land on. Higher falls generally pose a greater risk of injury, as the impact upon landing is greater. The way that someone lands also determines how severe their injury is. Someone who slips on the sidewalk and lands on their ankle is likely going to have a less severe injury than someone who hits their head on the pavement when they land.

The severity of your injury will typically affect how much compensation you can receive from an injury claim. During your free consultation with Lewis & Keller, we’ll be able to determine whether you have a case and dig deeper to identify how much your case might be worth.

Who Is Responsible for Your Injury?

In many cases, various parties may be held liable for a slip and fall accident. These parties can include the property owner, property manager, maintenance staff, or contractors. In some cases, multiple parties share liability. 

Ultimately, the liable party will be whoever acted negligently. Proving negligence may require the expertise of an experienced slip and fall lawyer in Greensboro who can conduct a thorough investigation on your behalf.

Proving Negligence in Slip and Fall Cases

Negligence in slip and fall cases is typically determined by assessing whether someone else’s failure to act responsibly directly contributed to the accident. In order to establish negligence, you must provide compelling evidence that supports the following key elements:

Another Party Owed You a Duty of Care
That Duty of Care Was Breached
Breaching Their Duty of Care Caused Your Accident
The Accident Led to Your Injury

By thoroughly examining these elements and providing solid evidence to support your claim, your Greensboro slip and fall attorney can strengthen your case and enable them to better negotiate for the maximum settlement.

Time Is Limited To File a Claim

North Carolina law allows a 3-year window to file a personal injury claim, starting from the date of the accident. This time period is called the statute of limitations. If you file a claim after this 3-year period, you may not be eligible for compensation. It’s essential to reach out to an attorney as soon as possible to ensure your claim is filed within this timeframe.
