Here are some things you need to know about multi-party liability and slip and fall claims. You should never underestimate the impact of a slip and fall accident on your body. This can lead to serious injuries from which you may struggle to recover. It is important to consult with an Arizona personal injury attorney if you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident. You may be tempted to just ignore the entire incident and move on with your life, but this can be a mistake because you may be forfeiting possible compensation for your injuries, including but not limited to medical bills incurred for treatment related to the accident.
What’s Required in Putting Together a Slip and Fall Case in Arizona?
In order to prove a slip and fall claim, you must be able to demonstrate that you tripped or slipped and ultimately fell on the property in question, that the property owner had a duty to be aware of dangerous conditions to protect injured people from harm, that the owner breached this duty, and that the breach of this duty caused your injuries.
More Than One Party Could Be Responsible
Bear in mind that a property owner might not be the only individual liable for your slip and fall injury in Arizona. There are typically multiple parties involved in this same accident. Some of the liable parties, for example, might include a contractor or subcontractor working on the property, a tenant subleasing or leasing the property, agents and employees of the property owner, or the property management company.
These cases can be very complex, and the selection of the right personal injury attorney makes a big difference. If you think that you may be involved in a case like this, do not hesitate to get legal advice sooner rather than later. You have a limited time period in which you’re eligible to file a claim, so do not put off meeting with an attorney.
How to Get Help with a Slip and Fall Case
In order to determine what applies in your case, you need to consult with an Arizona personal injury attorney as soon as possible after you have been injured. A knowledgeable attorney can tell you more about your rights as well as your next steps. Filing a claim against multiple liable parties may be the best way to protect your future by fighting for compensation as a result of the injuries you have sustained. Only an experienced attorney can evaluate all the facts in your case and determine if more than one individual or entity is responsible for your injuries.
