Slip & Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can result in serious injuries that are expensive to treat. Whether minor or major, slip & fall accidents can alter your life - short and long term.
Slip and Fall Accidents
In Washington, residential and commercial property owners/lessee owe a duty to protect those who visit their property from being harmed. Spilled liquids, slippery substances, plumbing leaks, uneven floorboards, broken rails, loose carpets, or missing warning signs or barriers can all contribute to slip and fall accidents.

Depending upon the reason visitors have for being on the property, they may be considered as invitees, licensees, or trespassers. Property owners owe different duties to each classification. The highest duty of care is owed to invitees. Invitees may include clients in offices, as well as customers visiting restaurants, retail stores and shopping malls.

In order to recover damages for a slip and fall accident, invitees must show: (1) they were an invitee, (2) the defendant knew or should have known about a danger that involved an unreasonable risk of harm to invitees, (3) the defendant should have expected that invitees wouldn’t realize there was a danger, and (4) the defendant failed to use ordinary care to guard against the danger.
Comparative Negligence

Washington is a pure comparative negligence state. This means your damages may be reduced by an amount equivalent to your degree of fault for your injuries. However, unlike some states, Washington does not impose a threshold percentage of fault requirement that bars certain injured persons from bringing a claim.

Persons injured in slip and fall accidents may be able to recover compensatory damages if they can establish liability. Compensatory damages are needed for medical bills, lost income, out of pocket expenses, and future needs. Injured persons may also be entitled to compensation for their noneconomic losses, including pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment, and loss of consortium.

    Your Choice of Attorney Throughout the Process

    “Snohomish Law Group attorney Philip Wakefield did an outstanding job in representing my daughter. He laid out the legal process in detail, set expectations, and worked hard to obtain a better than hoped for result. Should anyone in the Snohomish area ever need an attorney, I highly recommend Snohomish Law Group!!”

    David Dalton

    “I’m going to write my review straight forward I was looking at being convicted of my 10th DUI I thought I was dead meat as they had me dead to rights. However Mr. Wakefield and his team proceeded to not only get the charge reduced but also no fine and no jail time. My eternal gratitude to the Snohomish Law Group”

    Jonathan Thomas

    “Mr. Wakefield and his expertise was able to get myself and my siblings a large chunk (Much more than we imagined) of our inheritance from our Auntie that was wrongfully taken from us after her passing. We are eternally grateful to Mr. Wakefield and all that helped him in our case, to achieve this settlement. Thank you so much for your compassion.”
