Slips, trips, and falls can cause serious and even fatal injuries. Falls are on pace to overtake auto accidents as the top cause of trauma-related deaths in the United States. If you have been injured from a slip and fall accident in Hawaii, you know how the injuries can change your life. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries if a property owner’s negligence was to blame.
Compensation for fall injuries
Compensation may be available after a slip or trip and fall if:
- The fall happened on someone else’s property.
- The person or company in control of the property (including individuals, government agencies, businesses, landlords, and tenants) had an obligation to take reasonable steps to ensure your safety while you were there.
- The person or entity in control of the property failed to live up to the obligation to ensure the property was reasonably safe.
- You were injured as a direct result of the failure.
