If you have suffered injuries in a slip-and-fall accident, don’t try to settle any claims on your own. Proving negligence or establishing liability can be a complex and difficult process. That’s why it is important to have experienced attorneys—like those at Carter Mario Law Firm—on your side.

What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability refers to legal action that can be brought if a slip-and-fall occurs—whether on private or public property. Before any action can move forward, a relationship must first be determined. Any legal action will depend on whether the accident victim is:

  • An Invitee who is invited to enter the premises to conduct business, such as a retail shopper.
  • A Licensee who enters for non-commercial reasons, such as a house guest or a party attendee.

About Responsibility

Business owners, property managers, and homeowners have a responsibility to keep properties safe and free of hazards. If you enter a premises and slip, trip, or fall through no fault of your own, an owner or manager can be held legally responsible for your injuries due to negligence.

Establishing Responsibility

Proving responsibility in slip-and-fall accident cases can be difficult. Often, a property owner will plead ignorance regarding any unsafe conditions that led to your fall and your subsequent injury.

If you do not act quickly after the accident, any relevant evidence may be removed from the premises, which can make building a case and establishing responsibility far more difficult. Carter Mario Law Firm can help hold the responsible party accountable for your injuries.
