How do Kent and Seattle slip and fall cases work?

Individuals, businesses and other entities that invite you onto their property are legally responsible for keeping their premises safe and free of hazards so you can be safe.  

Unfortunately, some property owners and employees act recklessly and cause others to get injured in preventable accidents. While some of these cases are literally slip and fall accidents, they can include other situations, like tripping, falling, or other situations. 

Some of the most common unsafe conditions that cause slip and fall accidents are: 

  • Wet floors 
  • Ripped up carpeting 
  • Uneven flooring or mats 
  • Cluttered aisles 
  • Unsafe stairs 
  • Icy sidewalks 
  • Potholes 
  • Poorly lit parking lots 

These accidents can occur anywhere on the property, inside or outside, whether it’s in a dressing room, on an elevator or escalator, in the restroom, on an outdoor walkway, or any other dangerous conditions. 

The most critical thing to consider when pursuing a slip and fall claim is liability—who is responsible for your injury. To recover damages, you’ll need to prove that the property owner or an employee contributed to or did not address the hazard that caused you to get hurt. Some common premises liability cases include: 

  • A property owner knows that a damaged sidewalk on their premises needs repair but ignores the issue and fails to block off the hazard or put up warning signs. 
  • An employee mops the floor but fails to place a sign down alerting customers or anyone else doing business on the premises that the floor is wet. 
  • A restaurant paints their wheelchair ramp with paint that’s not fortified with grit, making it extremely slick when wet, never re-painting the walkway with the correct product and putting patrons at risk. 

Because Washington follows comparative negligence laws when awarding compensation to injury victims, property owners will often try to argue the accident wasn’t 100 percent their fault. If you’re found to be partially responsible for the accident, any compensation you’re awarded will be reduced by the percentage you’re found to be at-fault. Common reasons to hold the person who slipped and fell at least partially responsible for the accident include: 

  • Taking part in a distracting activity, such as texting or talking on the phone 
  • Entering an unauthorized part of the property 
  • Ignoring caution signs or posted warnings 

If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident, it’s critical to speak with an experienced Kent personal injury attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights. The last thing you want to happen is to get blamed for your accident and lose out on the compensation you’re entitled to. 

An experienced premises liability attorney can help you get your life back on track and demand fair compensation

After you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident, you’re likely facing an uphill battle. Insurance companies are notorious for lowballing injury victims and pressing them to accept quick cash settlements. They do this because they know the quicker that they can get you to settle, the less time you’ll have to find out the true cost of your slip and fall accident.
