Falls Can Be Caused by Negligence
A negligent property owner may not protect their customers, residents, or the general public from harm. A property owner could be one of the multiple parties responsible for your losses of your loved one’s losses.
Negligence is generally the standard for proving that someone is legally responsible for a fall victim’s losses. The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can help you prove a property owner’s negligence by:
- Establishing that the property owner owed you a duty of care, which generally means to maintain a safe property
- Showing that the property owner’s premises was not safe
- Showing that the property owner’s unsafe premises caused you to slip and fall
- Establishing that your fall has resulted in numerous forms of harm
The American Bar Association (ABA) explains that the property owner did not have to intend to harm you in order to be negligent. A property owner’s negligence could stem from:
- Their failure to monitor their premises for hazards
- Their failure to train employees regarding the detection and cleanup of slipping hazards
- Their general lack of care for their property
- Their failure to alert you to specific slipping hazards in their property
Victims who visit a property have a reasonable expectation of safety, especially if they are acting in a normal manner. If you or your loved one slipped, fell, and became injured, then a property owner could be responsible for your losses.
