Slip and Fall While Christmas Shopping? What Are Your Rights?
March 23, 2020
The owners of a mall or any business inside of that mall have a duty to take precautions to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition. If an individual or entity breaches that duty and fails to remove accumulations of water or other substances that create a slippery surface, and a customer is injured in a slip and fall, that customer might have a viable negligence claim against both the owner and occupier of that property. If all of this sounds familiar because you suffered injuries in a slip-and-fall while entering or inside of a mall, you’ll probably want to arrange for a free consultation and case evaluation with a Montana premises liability lawyer Bulman, Jones & Cook in Missoula.
A Respected Law Firm with a Record of Successes
Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall cases are complex. They’re governed by Montana statutes and cases on the law of premises liability. The cases often turn on just a few pivotal facts like whether the owner or occupier of the property knew of, should have known of or even created the dangerous condition that caused injury to somebody. If you intend on pursuing a premises liability claim after being injured in a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall, you’ll want to retain and work with a respected Montana personal injury lawyer who has a history of successes in premises liability cases.
