Can I Get Compensation for My Redmond Slip and Fall Injury?
Not every slip and fall injury entitles you to financial compensation. Whether you can get compensation will depend on the circumstances of your case and your status on the property at the time you were injured. In an action for negligence, the injured victim must establish that they were owed a duty of care; that duty was breached; the breach resulted in injury; there was a proximate cause between the breach and the injury; and the victim suffered actual damages.
The scope of the duty owed to a visitor on a property depends on their status on the property. Property owners or occupiers owe a different duty to invitees, licensees, and trespassers. A property owner or occupier’s duty to trespassers is to avoid willfully or wantonly injuring them. Persons injured while lawfully on premises must show that an unreasonably dangerous condition existed on the premises and that the owner or occupier had actual or constructive notice of the dangerous condition.
The injured victim has the burden of establishing negligence in a slip and fall injury case. These cases can be very complex, but an experienced Redmond slip and fall injury attorney will be able to assess your case and make a determination about the viability of your claim. If you have a valid claim, your Redmond personal injury lawyer will be able to gather evidence to establish the legal elements of your claim and get you the full and fair compensation that you deserve.
