In the unfortunate event of a slip and fall, an injured person will likely seek to hold someone accountable for their injuries. However, it may not be clear who is responsible for the injury that occurred. In instances of this nature, Las Vegas NV accident lawyers can help determine who is at fault. In an injured party’s attempt to get compensation for their injuries and suffering, they must prove why the owner of the property should be responsible. This is done by using evidence that strongly proves the property owner is at fault for the condition that led to the fall. Attorney Bryan Boyack of the Boyack Law Group is an accident lawyer who can help you prepare a personal injury case if the owner is at fault.
How to Determine Who is at Fault in a Slip and Fall Case
When a slip and fall case is brought to court, it should be clearly stated who is at fault. There are a few factors to consider when determining who is responsible for the injury. At least one of the following points must be proven to show the owner is liable:
•The owner directly caused a spill or damaged the surface where the injury took place
•The owner was aware of the condition of where the injury took place and did nothing about it.
•The owner should’ve been aware of and corrected it because a reasonable person would have done so.
In addition to these points, Las Vegas NV accident lawyers will also consider the injured party’s role in the incident. It will need to be shown that carelessness was not a factor in the occurrence of the incident.
