Experienced North Carolina Slip and Fall Lawyers on Your Side

Have you been injured in a slip and fall due to someone else’s negligence? You may be entitled to significant compensation – but the at fault-insurer is protecting their own interests, not yours. One of our experienced personal injury attorneys can handle the insurance company for you and significantly increase your odds of receiving maximum compensation.

A slip and fall accident could happen almost anywhere and when you least expect it, sometimes leading to painful and debilitating injuries that require costly medical care and other damages. Ideally, you wouldn’t need a slip and fall lawyer because you should be able to file an insurance claim with the at-fault insurer and receive full compensation for any costs arising from your injury.

But the law in North Carolina can put you at a serious disadvantage. If the insurance company can show you were even 1% at fault for the slip and fall, they may try to deny you any compensation whatsoever, no matter how bad your injuries may be.

Our slip and fall accident lawyers know how to counter the insurance company’s tricks and traps. To see how much your case may really be worth, contact us online or call 1-866-900-7078 today.

Slip and Fall Accidents and “Premises Liability”

Premises liability in North Carolina means that the owners or occupiers of a property are generally responsible for any hazardous conditions on their premises that could lead to you being injured. If you are injured on their premises due to these conditions, they could be liable for the injuries that you sustain.

Some of the most common hazardous conditions that can lead to injury include:

  • Wet, slippery, or uneven surfaces
  • Bad lighting
  • Stairs without handrails
  • Debris-filled rooms and cluttered hallways
  • Weather-created conditions, such as an icy driveway
  • Broken appliances and furniture in busy areas
  • Poor compliance with needed maintenance, leading to dangerous conditions such as an exploding furnace

Where Do Slip and Fall Injuries Happen Most?

Slip and fall injuries can happen almost anywhere, but some of the most common locations include:

  • Grocery stores with slippery floors
  • Houses and apartments that are poorly maintained or unclean
  • Sidewalks and streets filled with cracks and potholes
  • Public and private pools
  • Construction sites with uneven ground and dangerous debris and equipment lying about
  • Gyms, fitness facilities, and locker rooms

How Is Fault Determined in Your Slip and Fall Case?

Some of the factors that must be considered when determining liability in your slip and fall case include:

  • Duty of care – The property owner or the person responsible for the premises generally has a duty to ensure that the area is safe for others and free of dangerous hazards.
  • Breach of duty – The other person may have breached their duty of care by failing to maintain a safe premises if they:
    • Had knowledge of the hazard – Did they know, or should they have known about the hazard?
    • Failed to use reasonable care – Did they take reasonable steps to remove the hazard?
  • Causation – If the other person’s breach of their duty of care directly led to your injury, they are likely liable.
  • Damages – How did you suffer from their breach of care? You may be entitled to significant compensation.

North Carolina is a contributory negligence state, which means that if the insurance company can say that you are even 1% at fault for your slip and fall accident, you might not receive any compensation at all. For example, they might say that you were distracted by your phone or not paying attention before you fell.

Can You Receive Workers’ Compensation Benefits for a Slip and Fall at Work?

Yes, if you suffer an injury due to a slip and fall injury at work, you could be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. These can include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Permanent disability

Unfortunately, as with a personal injury claim, some insurance companies in a workers’ compensation claim may try to reduce or refuse your possible payout. Most make more by paying you less, but our experienced workers’ compensation lawyers can help you fight for everything you may deserve.
