One aspect that is often surprising in slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall cases is how severe the injuries are. Because people all over the country slip and are not hurt every day, no one expects to see a serious injury occur in a Peoria slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall case. However, we see many unfortunate injuries caused directly by somebody falling in an awkward way or a precarious place. Tragically, there have even been cases in which citizens were killed in slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall situations.
Arizona has passed what are known as the APSA laws. The Adult Protective Services Act was created and designed to help make sure that those who live in nursing home and assisted-living facilities in Peoria, Phoenix, and throughout the state of Arizona are protected. These laws are intended to hold caregivers accountable for their actions.
We all have a responsibility to avoid causing injury to other people. Landowners should uphold the same standard as the rest of us do. Therefore, when property owners or managers negligently allow a condition to exist or willfully create a condition that is unreasonably dangerous and may cause injury to innocent persons, it is important that an experienced lawyer be hired to ensure that they are held accountable to protect the rights of the person who has been wrongly injured.
