Premises liability cases can sometimes be known as slip and falls. Slip and fall injuries result from customers slipping and falling on a wet surface on the premises.
This covers any case where the property owner neglects their property, does not keep it in a safe condition, and someone gets hurt.
Individuals may be injured by ceilings, lead paint, lack of security, or adequate lighting.
As mentioned in the video, the value of settlements in slip and fall injuries cases may vary from between $5000 to $50,000, and in some cases $500,000.
The settlement value of the slip and fall case is dependent on the nature and severity of the injury caused, the extent of the property owner’s negligence and resulting liability, and the jurisdiction where the lawsuit is filed.
Slip and fall injuries cases where minor injuries such as sprains or bruising are sustained are valued lower compared to cases where bones break or worse.
Where the plaintiff is unable to prove that the property owner was aware of the hazardous condition, the case is worth less despite the extent of injuries sustained.
Some counties are slip and fall injuries friendly for the plaintiff, causing the case to be worth more than comparable cases in other counties.
