17 Apr Did You Know That You Don’t Necessarily Have to Slip and Fall in a Slip and Fall Case?
If you have suffered an injury while in a commercial establishment or at another’s residence, friends and family may suggest that you consult with a West Palm Beach slip and fall lawyer in order to determine whether or not you might be able to pursue compensation from the property owner. In many instances, a viable slip and fall case exists even if you did not actually slip, or for that matter, fall.
Although you will often hear of slip and fall injuries, the actual term for such cases is premises liability because you are seeking to hold the owner of the premises on which you were injured liable for your injuries. Often, such cases involve a victim who slips on a slick floor and falls, and so they have come to be known as slip and fall cases despite the fact that neither element is essential to a premises liability case. For example, if you are shopping in a West Palm Beach wholesale club and one of the shelves is stacked with merchandise such that the shelf becomes unstable and topples over on top of you causing serious injury, you may have a premises liability suit despite the fact that you did not slip or fall.
