We have all seen some type of liquid such as oil, grease, or water in areas we may need to walk around or through. Talk about an accident waiting to happen! Perhaps there is a construction project happening, or you are at work and a cleaning crew has spilled something…in any case, slipping on any surface can cause pain both physically and financially. If you have recently been the victim of a slip and fall accident, you need medical and legal attention. You probably have a primary physician you call in the case of such an accident, but do you have a legal expert in your address book? Most of us don’t, because generally we only need to know a legal professional if we have decided to file a lawsuit of some kind, and hopefully, those are not the norm but rather the exception. If you want to call the #1 personal injury legal team in the area, look no further than Downriver Lawyer. We handle hundreds of cases every year, including those involving slip and fall accidents.
Was a property owner negligent, resulting in you slipping and falling?
Most of us have a general idea as to what negligence means, but when it comes to legal cases, it has a very specific definition. According to Wikipedia, the definition of negligence is: A failure to exercise the care that a reasonably prudent person would exercise in like circumstances.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Negligence
If you are walking along, and all of a sudden you slip and fall due to an unknown slippery substance that is covering the floor, you may be the victim of negligence. Any area which is subject to wet, slippery surfaces must be clearly and properly labeled, warning those who approach about the impending hazard. If not, there may be a legitimate case of negligence on the part of the party responsible, or property owner.
Some substances, such as tar and oil, may be easy to detect and see, while others, such as water, oil, and floor polish, may be nearly invisible until you have already stepped into it and experienced a slip and fall. A slip and fall can happen very fast, before you know it, you have fallen on a hard surface, and need medical help immediately. Once you have received medical attention, your next order of business should be to consult legal experts such as those at Downriver Lawyer. We know everything there is to know about investigating and trying slip and fall cases, which is why you need us in your corner.
