Sometimes people get hurt when they are at a place of business or on someone’s property. If the injury is caused by the negligence of the business owner or land owner or occupant, they may be responsible for your injuries.
These injuries often occur from a dangerous condition, such as an unreasonably slippery condition on the property or in the business which causes you to slip and fall. Other times, land owners or business owners leave unreasonable hazards on the property which causes an injury. An example of this might be a hole in the floor or on the property which is hidden, which causes you to fall or otherwise be injured. Under these circumstances, the owner or occupier of the business or property may be responsible for your injuries, if your injuries were caused by their negligence.
In Alaska, slip and fall injuries on snow and ice are common. If your slip and fall was caused by the negligence of the land owner, business owner, or occupier of the land, you may have a case. Every slip and fall case is different. Every case must be evaluated individually to see whether or not the injured party has a claim. For these reasons, if you are injured in a slip and fall accident, we recommend that you immediately do the following:
- Obtain photos of the condition which caused your fall;
- Immediately report the injury to the business or owner of the property;
- Get the names, address and phone numbers of any and all witnesses;
- Seek appropriate medical attention immediately; and
- Get the advice from an experienced attorney about whether or not you have the right to make a claim for your injuries.
