Are Slip and Fall Cases Hard To Win?
Category: Slip and Fall
More Info: Premises Liability
Slip and fall, or trip and fall accidents, a type of premises liability case, can be devastating, both physically and financially.
If you’ve recently been involved in a slip and fall accident and you’re thinking of filing a personal injury claim, you’re probably wondering what you’ll have to do to win.
Slip and fall cases are challenging because you have to prove three things, all of which are critical.
You have to prove that:
- Your accident was due to someone else’s negligence
- It directly caused your injuries
- Your slip and fall accident injuries have direct financial costs
There are several ways a slip and fall accident can occur.
Whether it’s from a lack of signage warning about a wet floor or a failure to maintain safe sidewalks, the number of things that can cause a slip and fall accident is almost infinite.
When a property owner does fail to protect you from a slip and fall injury, it may still be difficult for you to prove your case.
In the article below, we will discuss why it can be difficult to win your slip and fall case.
What Percentage of Slip and Fall Cases Go To Trial?
The vast majority of slip and fall cases will settle out of court because defendants understand that it is typically less expensive and much less time-consuming than taking the case to trial.
But even though most slip and fall cases will settle out of court, each case is unique, and the outcome will depend on the unique circumstances surrounding your accident.
Some cases settle long before a jury trial takes place, while others can settle days or even hours before a trial is set to take place.
Many times, whether or not your case goes to trial is determined by the willingness of the insurance company to offer a fair settlement to the victim of a slip and fall accident.
How Long Do Slip and Fall Cases Take To Settle?
The time it takes to settle your slip and fall case can be anywhere from a few months to a few years. It all depends on the exact circumstances that are involved.
Victims of slip and fall accidents due to someone else’s negligence have a little control over how long it takes your case to settle.
