Qualifying Criteria for a Slip and Fall Case

Wondering if your slip and fall case qualifies for compensation? CLS Law is here to guide you through the key factors determining your eligibility for seeking the compensation you deserve.

Your Visitor Status

When you were on the property where the accident occurred, were you a guest, a customer, or simply passing through? Your visitor status impacts the legal protections you have. Our team will help clarify how this affects your case and safeguard your rights.

Noticing the Hazard

To establish liability, we must show that the property owner was aware or should have been aware of the hazardous condition. Whether it was a wet floor left unattended or a broken step ignored despite being reported, we’ll thoroughly investigate to build a strong case.

Comparative Fault Rule

In Arizona, even if you share some responsibility for the accident, you may still be eligible for compensation. We’ll carefully analyze the details of your situation and fight for the maximum recovery possible.

Our Approach to Slip and Fall Cases

At CLS Law, we understand how complicated slip and fall cases can be. Our goal is to help you seek the highest possible compensation for your injuries and any losses you’ve experienced. Here’s our approach:

Collecting Evidence

One of our first steps is collecting essential evidence to build a compelling case. This includes:

  • Photographic Evidence: We document all details of the location where the injury occurred, highlighting any dangerous conditions.
  • Witness Statements: We interview witnesses to obtain their firsthand accounts, which can support your claim.
  • Security Camera Footage: If available, we gather surveillance footage that may have captured the accident, which can be crucial in establishing liability.
  • Medical Records: We review your medical history to understand the severity of your injuries and their impact on your daily life, which helps in valuing your claim.

Calculating Your Claim’s Value

Determining the full extent of your damages is essential to ensure you receive fair compensation. Our team assesses various elements contributing to your claim’s value, including:

  • Medical Expenses: We account for all past and future medical costs related to your injuries, including hospital bills, medications, physical therapy, and ongoing treatments.
  • Lost Wages: We help calculate the income you’ve lost due to your injuries and seek compensation for these lost wages.
  • Pain and Suffering: We understand the emotional toll of slip and fall accidents and seek appropriate compensation for your physical and emotional pain.
  • Property Damage: If any personal items were damaged in the incident, we include the value of those items in your claim.

Negotiating with Insurance Companies

Dealing with insurance companies can be challenging as they often aim to settle for the lowest amount possible. With years of legal experience, we negotiate with insurance companies on behalf of individuals injured in slip and fall accidents. Our team handles all communication with the insurer, working diligently to ensure you receive a fair settlement covering all your damages.

We provide personalized attention and support, ensuring you get the representation you deserve. We guide you through the legal process, answer your questions, and keep you informed every step of the way.
