Who is Responsible for Slip and Fall Lawsuits?
When slip and fall accidents occur, the injured party is often left wondering how they can be compensated for their injuries and who should be held responsible. As with any accidental injury, contacting an injury lawyer in your local area should be a top priority.
This article will discuss who is responsible for a slip and fall lawsuit and if your accident happened in the West Palm Beach, Florida area, Casas Law has the answers to all of your premises liability and accidental injury questions.
Who Is Responsible?
When a slip and fall accident occurs, the property owner is usually the person who will be held liable in a slip and fall lawsuit claim. That is because the owner of a property owes a legal duty of reasonable care to the visitors and guests of their property.
As with any rule, there are exceptions. If the property you were visiting is maintained by someone other than the property owner, a property manager, for example, there is a chance that they are the liable parties. Speaking with an injury law firm like Casas Law Injury Lawyers can help you determine who was legally responsible for your safety.
Slip and Fall Negligence
After you have determined who owes the duty of care, you must then show how they were negligent in performing that duty. According to Florida state law, proving negligence means proving that they did know that the danger or risk was present and they did not reasonably act to maintain a safe property.
This means that they did not take the proper actions to protect visitors and guests from danger or risk. Casas Law can help you determine whether a West Palm Beach property owner or manager was negligent in providing a reasonable duty of care and protecting your safety.
