Striving to Hold Negligent People & Companies Accountable

Accidents happen all the time but, in most cases, personal injury cases come from the negligence of another individual or entity. Negligence occurs when someone else—whether it’s an individual person, a business, a manufacturer, or some other entity—either fails to do something a reasonable person would have done in that situation or does something that a reasonable person would not have done in the same situation.

There are two circumstances in which your odds of winning your personal injury case look better:

  1. The property owner or their employee knew of the dangerous condition or uneven walking surface, but this has to be a reasonable and easily identifiable hazard. There is also the matter of whether the defendant could have fixed the hazard beforehand.
  2. The property owner or their employee actually caused the hazardous condition and it could have reasonably been seen as a dangerous condition where someone might slip and fall.

It all comes down to liability. If you can prove the owner or their employees should have recognized the hazard, and you were completely at no fault for the accident, you may have a fighting chance. Because most businesses take great care to avoid these types of claims and lawsuits, though, it is unlikely you’ll win a slip and fall case.

Our Chattanooga personal injury attorneys believe that negligent parties should be held accountable, and we work tirelessly to help our injured clients fight for the full compensation they are owed.
