Skilled Personal Injury Lawyers on Your Side

A slip and fall accident, sometimes called a premises liability accident, can be serious. A broken hip, a fractured ankle, a cracked skull- these are just a few of the debilitating medical conditions a person can suffer as the result of an injury caused by a hazardous condition on someone else’s property. Most claims arising out of slip and falls are anything but simple, especially if they arise in North Carolina.

Navigating Slip & Fall Accidents

Some of the most common slip and fall accidents involve slipping on ice and snow, falling on wet floors, and tripping on worn carpet, uneven surfaces, potholes, and other hazards lying on the floor.

Under North Carolina law, an injured person ordinarily has the burden of proving:

  • The defendant, including a property owner, lessee, or property manager, created the hazardous condition that led to the injury
  • The defendant knew or, in the exercise of due diligence, should have known about the unsafe condition and failed to repair or remove it within a reasonable time

    It can be a challenge to find both the physical proof and the witnesses necessary to prove your slip and fall claim. Our Charlotte slip and fall attorneys and investigators know the most important questions to ask and where to look for the answers. There is a lot our clients can do to help strengthen their case as well.

    You can help your case by:

    • Thinking hard about how and why your accident happened. What caused it? The information you have is vitally important to your case because property owners clean up, make repairs, and even reconstruct areas shortly after injuries occur on their premises
    • Jotting down your recollection of the incident while it is fresh in your mind. For example, exactly what was it that struck you or made you fall? What did the object look like and where did it come from? If you slipped on a substance of some kind, what was it? What did it feel like? If the substance touched your clothing or shoes, save these items
    • Photographing the location where you were injured as soon as possible
    • Reporting the incident to a store owner, manager, or responsible employee immediately
    • Asking for a copy of an accident report the owner or his employee may prepare concerning your fall and injury

    A Confident Ally on Your Side

    Winning a slip and fall case in North Carolina can be difficult because a plaintiff must overcome strong defenses. Under North Carolina law, contributory negligence may bar your recovery if the hazard or unsafe condition that caused your fall is “open and obvious” and a jury decides you should have seen and avoided it. You have a duty to watch where you’re going and see what there is to be seen.

    Slip and fall cases are dependent on the facts of each particular incident. Almost every set of circumstances is different. That’s one reason you need an experienced law firm like Vásquez Law Firm, PLLC, a firm with attorneys who have handled slip and fall cases. Our Charlotte lawyers can gather the facts they know are critical to your case and evaluate them. They can explain your legal options and give you advice on how to proceed. If you have the facts on your side, they can put together a winning strategy.
