Get the Compensation You Deserve for Medical Bills,
Pain & Suffering, and Loss of Income


If you’re someone who was shopping at a grocery store, a gas station, or some other place of business, and you slipped on something that was spilled to the floor or tripped on an uneven surface and it caused you a significant injury, you may have a possible premises liability case (commonly known as a slip/trip and fall lawsuit). However, slip and fall accidents that result only in minor cuts, scrapes, or bruising are not typically significant enough to warrant a claim of personal injury against the property owner. You may be entitled to compensation, however, if you were injured in a serious slip and fall accident.

The insurance company for the negligent property owner may try to argue your injury is minor, even though you may be dealing with significant physical problems related to the accident. The adjuster may deny your claim or offer an insultingly low settlement offer. That’s when you need a skilled Arizona personal injury attorney on your side.

The Types of Slip and Fall Cases We Handle

A potential slip and fall lawsuit or premises liability lawsuit exists when you slip or trip on someone else’s property and they owed you a duty of care, like a store owner whom is obligated to provide a safe environment to customers in the store. The following are some straightforward examples of potential dangers that can create a potential lawsuit:

  • Wet floors
  • Oily floors
  • Hidden extension cords
  • Unsecured rugs or carpets
  • Unlit and uneven door steps
  • Broken or defective staircases and railings
  • Loose or broken floors, sidewalks, or steps

What Types of Injuries Make a Good Slip and Fall Case

When pursuing a slip and fall lawsuit, a good case exists when there’s significant injuries that result because of the fall. The reason that injuries resulting in minor cuts, scrapes, or bruising make it difficult to pursue a case is due to the difficulty of proving the fall was the direct cause of your injuries. An insurance company or business owner will often argue that a scrape or bruise was caused by something else, and not by the fall. A significant injury that could only happen from a fall makes it much easier to pursue a case. The following are some common injuries that make for a good trip and fall case to pursue:

  • Dislocated Joints
  • Broken Bones
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Back and Spinal Cord Injury
  • Cuts resulting in stitches

The Elements for a Premises Liability Lawsuit in Arizona

A Premises liability lawsuit is similar to that of a basic negligence lawsuit involving an auto accident or similar cases. The only added condition is that the injury takes place on someone else’s property. In the state of Arizona, any premises liability claim requires proof that four elements of negligence exist:

  1.  The existence of a duty of care on the part of the defendant;
  2. The defendant’s breach of that duty;
  3. That breach or conduct caused the injury;
  4. And that it caused some form of damages.
