Frequently asked questions about Arizona slip and fall accidents
Can I file a lawsuit if I get hurt at someone else’s house?
Yes. If you are a guest at the house, the homeowner owes you a duty to protect against any dangerous condition. If there is a condition that causes you to fall, the homeowner can be responsible if they “knew or should have known” of the dangerous condition. This standard removes responsibility to the homeowner for situations they could not reasonably expect or be aware of. But, if you fell because of an issue that could have been repaired or fixed and the homeowner knew about it or should have noticed it, then they will be responsible.
What should I do if the property owner denies responsibility?
Your only recourse is to file a lawsuit. A good lawyer will be able to help you identify evidence and laws that apply to show if the property owner should be responsible for the fall. A jury or arbitrator will then determine if the property owner should have responsibility.
How can a lawyer help me with a slip and fall accident?
If you are involved in a slip and fall accident, there are a lot of issues to address. It can become overwhelming to handle the medical treatment, calls from the insurance company, medical bills, lost wages, and submitting information to the insurance company. A good lawyer can take that off your plate and make sure you can focus on feeling better. The best ways a lawyer can help is:
- Stop the phone calls from the other insurance company
- Request incident reports and talks to any witnesses
- Gather vital evidence such as surveillance footage
- Find insurance from the at-fault company/store/building and any other sources
- Make sure you are not overcharged for medical treatment
- Work out the reimbursement of your medical charges to your health insurance company
- Prepare your case to meet the legal burdens of proof if litigation is necessary.
