- Arizona’s consideration of negligence when determining compensation
- Common causes and injuries from slip and fall or trip and fall accidents
Premises liability law is like a personal injury case where a business or a property has a duty to keep the property safe, so if they breach that duty and a client is at that property gets hurt, then it just falls under their responsibility.
Causes Of Slip And Fall Or Trip And Fall Incidents That Result In Injuries
Common situations are in grocery stores if there is a slippery substance and an individual slips, and we had a case where somebody slipped on a bottle of shampoo, fell on the floor, and then they slipped on the shampoo. But really anything could cause a slip and fall, if there’s anything that’s on the floor and you don’t know it’s there.
Injuries Seen As A Result Of Slip And Fall Or trip And Fall Incidents
The type of injuries that we see a lot of are fractures and broken bones. There’s also soft tissue injuries, but it just depends on the fall. We’ve also seen traumatic brain injuries as a result of the slip and fall or trip and fall.
Does Arizona Law Consider My Negligence When Determining If I Am Entitled To Compensation For My Damages?
Arizona negligence laws follow the doctrine of comparative negligence. In Arizona, an injured party is allowed to recover even if he/she is at fault. The client/plaintiff’s money damages are reduced by the percentage of fault attributed to them. Arizona does block any recovery if the act was intentionally caused.
