Slip and Fall Cases
Slip and fall cases cover a broad range of incidences and injuries. In Utah, a lot of slip and fall cases involve businesses who were not diligent in keeping their sidewalks and parking lots cleared of ice and snow.
Slip and fall cases also include accidents caused by faulty stairs, tripping hazards on the ground, sharp objects that cut people, spills in grocery stores, and dozens of other types of cases where a landowner failed to take reasonable precautions to make sure their property was safe for visitors.
Why Hire a Lawyer to Help With a Slip and Fall Case?
Slip and fall cases are difficult for many reasons. The first reason is that they are subject to the comparative fault rule. Under Utah law, an injured victim must prove that their own contribution to the accident was less than 50% of the reason for the accident. In slip and fall cases, landowners (and their insurance companies) are notorious for blaming the person who fell. They argue that the injured person was just clumsy or that they failed to recognize an open and obvious hazardous condition.
