Falls Cause Serious Injuries
Slipping and falling can cause serious injuries, such as broken bones, head injuries, and other severe injuries. If you have suffered an injury in a slip and fall accident, you may be facing medical costs, loss of income, and emotional stress. When the property owner is responsible for the condition that caused your injury, Whitehead Law can fight to get you fair compensation for your injury, as well as any other related medical costs and loss of income.
Determining if You Have a Case
After an injury, you may wonder if you have a slip and fall case. In order to obtain a favorable outcome, you will need to prove that the property owner was negligent. This requires showing that the owner created the dangerous condition, knew about the dangerous condition and failed to address it, or should have known about the danger the condition posed for visitors or customers.
A property owner may be held responsible for dangers such as:
- Holes in the ground
- Loose or missing handrails on stairs
- Inadequate lighting
- Concrete in disrepair
- Snow or ice
- Bumps in the carpet
- Spills on the floor
In addition, there is a statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit. In Delaware, you have two years from the date of the incident to file suit. The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Maryland is three years. It is important to seek the advice of an attorney within this period of time to secure compensation for your injury. Our Delaware personal injury lawyers can provide the legal advice and support you need and fight for your right to legal compensation.
