Most people cannot foresee that an accident will happen; that’s why they’re called “accidents”. However, there are conditions that create potentially dangerous situations, and nowhere is this more evident than in the area of slip and fall accidents. Injury in a slip and fall accident can cost you time, money, and physical and emotional stress. Let Nashville Personal Injury Attorney Rhonda R. Crabtree help you get the compensation you are entitled to.
Slip and Fall accidents
Known as Premises Liability claims, are caused by negligent conditions that haven’t been attended to by a property owner, conditions that include defective flooring and steps, wet floors, poorly lit areas and steps, icy patches, and potholes. It is the duty of the property owner and/or business owner to maintain his or her property. If the property owner has been negligent, and someone is *injured as a result of this negligence*, it is the property owner’s responsibility to compensate the injured party. In order to receive this compensation, however, a proper investigation into the claim is essential. Hiring an experienced Tennessee Slip and Fall Lawyer like Rhonda R. Crabtree can ensure that the investigation into your claim will be quick, thorough and will secure the evidence you need to build a strong case.
Injuries can happen for many reasons
Temporary conditions such as water, oil, or ice need to be investigated and documented as quickly as possible before the condition changes or disappears. Nashville Slip and Fall Attorney Rhonda R. Crabtree will advise you on the steps to take to effectively substantiate your case, assisting you in filling out an accident report, gathering witness information, seeking medical attention and, when necessary, calling in experts to investigate the dangerous area where the accident occurred.
What should I Do?
Immediately call Rhonda R. Crabtree. Filling in an accident report as soon as the accident occurred is preferred, but if it hasn’t been done, and if the accident occurred on private property in an unobserved setting (no witnesses), Attorney Crabtree will help you recreate the situation, documenting and compiling a record for submission with your claim.
To win a case of slip and fall, the experienced Tennessee Personal Injury Lawyer, Rhonda R. Crabtree, must prove both the existence of a dangerous condition and the property owner’s awareness of that condition. An investigation would include:
- Thorough inspection of the location of the accident
- Securing evidence of dangerous condition
- Finding witnesses of accident and/or of known dangerous condition
- Proof of any prior complaints about dangerous condition and/or any similar accidents in said location
