Slip and Fall

Seriously injured in a slip and fall? Unsure of where to turn for help? Meet with a reputable slip-and-fall lawyer.

Slip-and-fall accidents are only true accidents if someone else isn’t responsible for the circumstances that caused the fall. For example, if you tripped over your own shoelaces and broke your leg, you wouldn’t have grounds for a lawsuit against anyone. But if you slipped on a wet floor in a restaurant, you might have a lawsuit on your hands.

Who Is At Fault for Your Utah Slip-and-Fall Injuries?

In the vast majority of Utah slip and fall accidents, the property owner where the accident occurred will be found liable for the victims’s injuries. Property owners have an obligation to provide their invited guests and patrons with a certain duty of care. Failure to maintain their premises or subject their guests to hazards that could cause them serious injury could be grounds for a personal injury claim. 

It is important to note this duty of care the property owners have only extends to invited guests and patrons. Anyone who was injured while trespassing on the property owners premises may not have the right to compensation for their injuries.
