Don’t Let a Property Owner Convince You That Your Injury Is Your Fault

It can be embarrassing to trip and fall when you’re out and about in Deerfield Beach or when you’re on someone else’s property. Often, trip and fall victims are more concerned about avoiding further embarrassment than they are about tending to any personal injury that may have been sustained. Consequently, it can be very easy for a negligent property owner to make a victim believe that the accident occurred because of clumsiness or inattention. However, sometimes accidents occur because a property owner has not adequately provided for the safety of patrons or guests. If you have been the victim of such an accident, it is important to contact a personal injury attorney in Deerfield Beach to determine whether or not the property owner is responsible.

 

Especially if a fall is sustained by an older person, it is fairly easy for a property owner to suggest the idea that the fall was due to clumsiness, unsteadiness, or even inattention. If the victim is already embarrassed at having fallen, they may be hesitant to protest that they fell because of poor lighting, uneven flooring, or a step that was unnoticeable and not adequately marked.

 

However, if the fall could have been prevented by the property owner, it is the property owner, and not the victim, who may be at fault for the injury that has been sustained. A personal injury attorney who is experienced in premise liability will be able to determine who is at fault and who bears responsibility for any personal injury that was suffered.

 

If you have fallen while on another’s property, do not automatically assume that it was your fault. Contact a personal injury attorney with Lawlor, Winston, White & Murphey to determine if you have a premise liability case.
