One of the most common areas of personal injury is the slip and fall. It happens on private property and public property, and each year, more than one million Americans are severely injured from simple trips, slips and falls in daily life. If you were injured because of a slip and fall accident, you may be entitled to damages and compensation from the property owner. But getting compensated isn’t as easy as it sounds – there must be a comprehensive investigation conducted to show that the injury was due to the negligence of the property owner.
If you've been injured in a slip and fall accident, you may be entitled to damages.

Jared handled a vehicular accident liability case for us a year ago and exceeded our expectations at every stage. He was very attentive and empathetic in the initial interview regarding the crash, which resulted in serious injury to our grandson by an impaired driver. Even though the driver at fault had zero assets Jared was able to obtain a significant insurance settlement for our grandson, who will use it to further his education.

Slip and Fall Injuries in Arizona
Property owners are not automatically liable for injuries sustained by others while on their property. Rather, the owners are only held liable if their negligence caused the injury. In many cases, this negligence comes about by slippery or dangerous conditions on a property. This can include:
Ice or icy conditions
Poor lighting conditions
If someone is injured because of these or similar conditions, the property owner can be held liable for the injury. If the injury occurred under normal circumstances and was due to the person’s own negligence – not watching where they were stepping, for example – then the property owner would not be liable for the injury or resulting damages.
Compensation for Slip and Fall Accidents
Proving the property owner’s negligence is the first step to a successful case. The next step deals with proving the damages, meaning, the actual injuries sustained because of the accident. This is also a difficult process, because the damages are not simply limited to medical bills. They can also include:
Future medical expenses, if needed
Lost wages from missing work
Pain and suffering due to injury
Loss of life satisfaction
As you can see, there’s no way to put a dollar amount on some of these damages, and this is another issue that a highly effective personal injury attorney will explore. If you have a case, you’ll want to make sure you receive all the damages you’re rightfully entitled to, and without the right attorney, you may not make the most of your claim.
Putting Together an Effective Case
As you can see, a slip and fall injury case is complex and thoroughly vetted before damages, if they apply, are awarded. Without the right guidance, your claim can be dismissed, or you may not receive all the compensation you’re eligible for.
