Are slip and fall cases hard to win?

Home » FAQs » Are slip and fall cases hard to win?

Slip and fall claims can come with their own challenges, however, this does not mean they’re hard to win—in many cases, slip and fall injuries can result in a quick financial settlement.

As with any personal injury case, the specific facts of your claim will ultimately determine the level of difficulty and results of your slip and fall injury case, but with an experienced personal injury lawyer from Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys on your team, you have a good chance of collecting the compensation you deserve.

The main challenge in collecting compensation after a slip and fall accident is proving that the property owner is liable for your injuries. In order to prove their liability, your team must prove

  • The accident was caused by a dangerous condition on the owner’s property
  • The owner or a manager of the property knew of the condition and failed to fix it
  • That condition presented an unreasonable risk to visitors
  • A reasonable person would not have anticipated the condition that caused your injury

The definition of reasonable person depends on the specifics of your case, and is decided by the judge and jury if your case goes to court. You need a legal team with experience in premises liability law in order to maximize your compensation.
