As slip and fall attorneys in Phoenix, Arizona, we get calls on a daily basis about slip and fall law in Arizona. So, we’re presenting some information below that can hopefully answer some questions you might have about a slip and fall case. Keep in mind, though, that all slip and fall accidents are different.
To show negligence in a slip and fall case, you must prove that:
- The owner or possessor of the property where you fell either knew or should have known about an unreasonably dangerous condition.
- That dangerous condition is what caused your fall.
- The fall caused you to sustain your injury.
So, for instance, say you fell at someone else’s house because you tripped over your own feet. Just because you fell at someone else’s home does not mean you have a valid legal claim.
On the other hand, if you were shopping at a store and fell because the floor was wet and there were no posted signs, the storeowner may be found liable because whoever mopped should have posted a warning sign.
Many times in these cases, though, the defendants will deny liability. So, in order to get fair compensation for your injury, you need an experienced slip and fall attorney on your side. Call Breyer Law Offices today for a free consultation.
