How To File A Slip And Fall Accident Claim In Arizona
To be able to successfully prove that the property owner was negligent when you experienced your slip and fall on their premises, you’ll need to have to prove the following successfully:
- Duty Of Care: you must show that you were owed a duty of care. This means you were owed a duty to not be harmed while visiting another person or entity’s property. There are different levels of duty of care depending on if you were there for business, personal reasons, or trespassing.
- Breach Of Duty of Care: you must demonstrate that the duty of care owed to you while on the premises was breached.
- Causation Of Injuries: you must show that this breach of duty caused your injuries.
- Damages From Injuries: you must show that the injuries caused you to suffer damages. Damages can be the tangible and intangible financial implications of the injuries you receive. They can attempt to make victims whole again after losing wages and experiencing pain and suffering.
Like most legal matters, Arizona law can be complex. We always recommend consulting with a lawyer when you’re considering bringing legal action.
Comparative Negligence In Scottsdale Slip And Fall Cases
To further complicate slip and fall cases, Arizona is a comparative negligence state. This means that the amount of damages you can receive as the result of legal action will be reduced proportionally by the percentage of fault you bear for your injury.
For example, if you are found to be 50% responsible for your slip and fall, you will only receive 50% of the total damages caused.
Statute Of Limitations In Arizona Slip And Fall Cases
Whether you’re considering bringing a case or you are trying to figure out if you have all the required elements to prove a breach of duty of care, it’s important to remember that the clock is likely already running in your slip and fall case.
You only have two years to file a slip and fall case under Arizona Revised Statutes 12-542, starting from when the injuries were discovered.
