Phoenix Slip & Fall Lawyers

We Can Help With Your Slip and Trip Claim in Arizona

Slip and fall injuries fall under the legal concept of premises liability. This is a field of personal injury law that makes property owners and managers liable for any injuries that occur on their premises due to negligent property maintenance. These individuals and entities have a legal duty of care to take reasonable precautions to maintain their premises, find potential safety hazards on the premises, remedy these hazards and, in the meantime, warn visitors of those hazards to prevent accidents and injuries. 

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury due to the safety hazards on another’s property, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim. These can be complex and difficult cases to prove which is why you should turn to Rack Law Group. Our team is experienced and skilled in putting together slip and fall claims against both public and private property owners and managers. We have built a reputation in the greater Phoenix area for excellence in service and legal proficiency in fighting for fair and just compensation for the injured.

Slip & Fall Claims in Arizona

Slip and fall claims can be made against the property owners of both private and public premises. These properties can include private residences as well as public places such as grocery stores, retail stores, office buildings, hotels, motels, movie theaters, restaurants, malls, sports and entertainment venues, schools, colleges, and more. 

Examples of safety hazards on a property that may lead to personal injury claims can include, but are not limited to, the following: 

  • Wet, slippery floors
  • Broken or uneven flooring surfaces
  • Poorly stacked overhead items that can fall 
  • Loose or torn carpeting
  • Broken or poor lighting in hallways, aisles, or other walkways
  • Defective electrical outlets
  • Toxic fumes 
  • Rickety stairs
  • Faulty decks or balconies
  • Negligent security

Whether or not you can file a claim against the property owner for your injuries will depend on the particular circumstances of the situation, including whether or not you were a valid visitor to the property or a trespasser. Furthermore, in a slip and fall claim, what you will receive will depend on the extent of your injuries and whether you shared any blame for the fall. 

Why You Need Skilled Slip and Fall Attorneys in Phoenix

In any slip and fall incident, the opposing party and their insurer will do everything possible to avoid being held liable for compensation. The business model of these entities is to maintain their profitability by paying out as little as possible on claims. They generally have their own legal teams dedicated to helping them avoid responsibility. To fight back, you will need a law firm that can stand up to their countermoves against you. 

The Complexity of Slip and Fall Cases

First and foremost, it's essential to recognize that slip and fall cases can be more complex than they initially appear. Establishing liability and proving negligence can be challenging, and various factors come into play, such as:

  • Property Owner's Duty of Care: Property owners have a legal obligation to maintain safe premises. Determining whether they breached this duty can be intricate, as it involves assessing the circumstances leading to your accident.
  • Causation: Proving that the property owner's negligence directly caused your injuries can be complicated. You may need evidence, such as surveillance footage, witness testimonies, or expert opinions, to establish a causal link.
  • Comparative Negligence: In some cases, the injured party may share partial responsibility for the accident. This concept of comparative negligence can affect the amount of compensation you're entitled to, and having a lawyer can help mitigate any potential blame assigned to you.

When Should You Consider Hiring a Lawyer?

While not every slip and fall accident requires legal representation, several situations may warrant hiring an attorney:

  • Severe Injuries: If your slip and fall resulted in significant injuries, such as fractures, head trauma, or spinal cord injuries, it's advisable to consult an attorney. These injuries often entail high medical bills, long-term rehabilitation, and potential loss of income.
  • Disputed Liability: When the property owner disputes their negligence, or their insurance company tries to shift blame onto you, having an attorney with experience in slip and fall cases can be invaluable.
  • Complex Cases: Slip and fall cases involving multiple parties, unclear liability, or intricate legal issues can be challenging to handle alone. A lawyer can navigate the complexities on your behalf.
  • Negotiating with Insurance Companies: Dealing with insurance companies can be a daunting task. Lawyers are skilled at negotiating with insurers to ensure you receive fair compensation.
  • Statute of Limitations: Be mindful of the statute of limitations in your jurisdiction, which sets a deadline for filing a slip and fall lawsuit. Missing this deadline can result in losing your right to compensation.

Our team of skilled litigators knows how to investigate accidents, gather evidence, build cases, and aggressively negotiate on your behalf for the compensation you deserve, such as for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more. With our firm on your side, your chances of a fair and just result are greatly increased. We fight for every dollar on behalf of all of our clients.
