The Elements of a Slip and Fall Case
In a slip-and-fall case, there are many complicated factors that come into play to determine if you are entitled to damages. An Irvine personal injury attorney can help you make the strongest possible case that you are entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, it may involve a “breach of warranty- claim, if any of the parties who were responsible for your slip and fall could be argued to have broken a promise to you. The promise may be implied and unstated, such as a property owner’s promise to keep the sidewalk safe for walking, or it may be a written promise, as a product’s advertisement that it will keep flooring slip-proof and safe for walking. If you relied on such a promise and suffered an injury, you may have a legal claim for breach of warranty.
Another possible factor is if the accident occurred due to another party committing a crime or violating a regulation or city ordinance. These rules demand special attention, and your Irvine personal injury attorney will need to closely examine the law to determine if it applies in your case.
If your injury occurred on public property or if the party responsible is a government entity, then there are specialized rules and laws that will apply to your case. Your personal injury attorney may need to allege additional claims specific to government employees or government entities.
