Slip and Fall Injuries
Slip and fall injuries can be very serious matters, as a variety of injuries can result from a slip and fall, ranging from cuts and bruises to head trauma, paralysis, possibly even death. Any property owner, government building or official may be held accountable for injuries that are the result of unsafe conditions. Many of these unsafe conditions can be seen in everyday life such as improperly constructed stairs, inadequate draining, poor lighting, a wet floor, even a hole or crack in the sidewalk.
Have you been the victim of a slip and fall? A slip and fall injury claim is a very time-sensitive matter, and when it comes to handling such cases, like every state, Vermont has its own set of laws. For instance, Vermont holds a law stating that even if you’re partly at fault for a slip and fall accident (anything less than 50%, decided by jury or insurance adjuster), you are still eligible to receive compensation for your injuries. Knowing the laws surrounding your injury case is tedious but necessary.
