Example Slip-and-Fall Situations Where You May Be Eligible for Compensation
There are different types of slip-and-fall cases that can occur. Here are a few examples of what can be considered a viable slip-and-fall cases.
These cases are where a slip-and-fall accident happens in direct response of a business neglecting their responsibilities. For example, a lake front restaurant doesn’t regularly pick up trash off the floor and a customer slips on a piece of it.
Potential for Hazard
These cases are where someone slip and falls, but it’s not directly in response to the neglecting of the business owners responsibilities. For example, a concert venue owner keeps their venue very clean and orderly most of the time. A concert happens and an attendee trips over a piece of trash on the ground. While, the workers typically keep the venue clean on a regular basis, the trash cans were full to where people couldn’t throw their trash away during the concert. Therefore, the “potential for hazard” was there.
Workers at a shipping facility are loading trucks behind enclosed fencing. The fence is clearly marked “authorized workers only.” A bystander ignores the sign and walks through the gate anyway and trips over a box. While the fence was clearly marked and the bystander probably won’t have a strong case, it could be argued that the facility didn’t try hard enough to keep bystanders out. For example, they didn’t lock the gate.
