Injured in a Trip and Fall Accident? Call Graves McLain for a Free Consultation.
As a common occurrence that results in a personal injury case, a trip and fall can cause serious injuries. While these cases will typically fall under the broader category of cases referred to as “premises liability” claims, the accidents that result in legal action often occur on property that is owned by someone else where the property owner may be legally responsible for damages that have occurred. Trip and fall injury claims can be extremely complex and will often require the assistance of an experienced law firm to seek damages.
Navigating the legal system after falling victim to a property owner’s negligence can be difficult financially, physically and emotionally. Individuals who have suffered a trip and fall in Tulsa, need to ensure they are working with a team of lawyers that understand these cases and can fight to protect your rights. If the defense can show that the plaintiff caused the accident by their own fault or negligence, the likelihood of winning an injury claim becomes unlikely. For this reason, it is important to seek legal guidance to review the case thoroughly as soon as possible.
The most common causes of trip and fall accidents are:
Changes in Flooring
Damaged or Narrow Stairs
Ice or Snow
Trip and fall accidents can occur on residential, commercial or governmental properties; however, the person injured must prove that the accident was caused by a dangerous condition that the property owner knew existed but did not fix. There is often no precise way to determine when a property owner is legally responsible for the injuries caused by a trip and fall and each case will have its own unique conditions that must be analyzed. Working with an experienced legal team can help determine if the property owner can be held liable for a premises liability claim and how their negligence contributed to a dangerous situation that led to a trip and fall.
