Slip and Fall

An owner or proprietor can be held liable for a slip and fall injury if the same has occurred due to an imperfection or if proper care is not taken to rectify the defect. The victim is also expected to be responsible to take ordinary care while walking on slippery or potentially dangerous surfaces. A plaintiff must show that defendant had knowledge of the defect, that no care was taken to rectify the defect, and that the defect was the proximate cause of the plaintiff’s injury.

If you have been injured on someone else’s property first seek medical attention. Your next step is to contact Attorney J. Shane Givens to promptly protect your rights and to help you obtain compensation for your injuries.
