Arizona Slip & Fall Law Firm


The Hogle Firm Slip & Fall Attorneys

In Arizona, slip and fall cases are typically covered under premises liability law. This area of law governs the responsibility of property owners to maintain a safe environment for those who visit their premises. If a property owner fails to do so, they may be held liable for any injuries that occur as a result.

To successfully pursue a slip and fall case in Arizona, several elements must be proven. The first is that the property owner had a duty to maintain a safe environment. This duty can be either expressed or implied, such as when a business owner opens their establishment to the public.

The second element is that the property owner breached this duty by failing to take reasonable steps to maintain a safe environment. This can include failing to fix a known hazard or failing to warn visitors of potential dangers.

The third element is that the breach of duty directly caused the slip and fall accident. This can be difficult to prove, as the defense may argue that the accident was caused by the victim's own negligence or the negligence of a third party.

Finally, the fourth element is that the victim suffered damages as a result of the accident. This can include medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

It's worth noting that Arizona follows a comparative negligence system, which means that damages awarded in a slip and fall case may be reduced if the victim is found to be partially at fault for the accident. For example, if the victim was distracted by their phone and didn't notice a hazard that was clearly marked, their damages may be reduced.

If you've been involved in a slip and fall accident in Arizona, there are several steps you should take to protect your rights. First, seek medical attention for any injuries you've sustained. Even if you feel fine initially, some injuries may not present symptoms until later on.

Next, report the accident to the property owner or manager and ask for a copy of the incident report. If possible, take photos of the scene of the accident, including any hazards that may have contributed to the fall.

It's also a good idea to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney who can advise you on your legal options. They can help you gather evidence and negotiate with the property owner's insurance company to ensure you receive fair compensation for your injuries.

Overall, slip and fall law in Arizona is complex and requires a thorough understanding of premises liability and negligence law. If you've been injured in a slip and fall accident, it's important to consult with an attorney who can help you navigate the legal system and protect your rights.
