Slips and Falls/Premises Liability

Charlotte Personal Injury Lawyer

If you were injured in a slip and fall accident, and it was because of a dangerous condition on someone else's property, you may deserve compensation. But if you make a claim on your own, it will probably be denied. Without the help of a personal injury lawyer, people seldom receive anything from the property owners whose negligence caused the accident.

Attorney Gregory N. Wilson can meet with you free of charge, analyze your situation, and let you know whether you have a case against a negligent property owner. If you have a case, he can fight for you on a contingency fee basis, meaning that he will only get paid once you do, under most circumstances.

What Is Premises Liability?

Premises liability is the field of law that encompasses slips and falls, some dog bites, and other accidents that are due to dangers associated with someone else's property. People who own property have a responsibility to take reasonable steps to prevent others from being injured on their property by known and reasonably discovered dangers. Those who do not can be held liable for any injuries that result.

Premises liability cases can involve any number of issues. Just a few examples of the common causes of slip and falls are:

  • Wet spots on store floors
  • Holes in pavement
  • Merchandise falling from shelves

In North Carolina, lawyers working in slip and fall litigation must prove that their client's injuries are due to dangers on the property, that the owner knew or should have known about those dangers, and that the owner did nothing to prevent those injuries from happening.

These requirements make it especially important to preserve as much evidence as possible. It is vital to call an attorney soon after a slip and fall so that he or she can take pictures, interview witnesses, and gather other evidence crucial to the case.
