Experienced Murfreesboro Slip and Fall Attorney Fights for Compensation for Injured Parties

Helping accident victims get maximum compensation for injuries

If you have been the victim of another’s negligence or have suffered an injury due to a slip and fall accident, don’t leave it up to insurance companies and third parties to compensate you. As an experienced Murfreesboro slip and fall attorney, David Scott  deals directly with property owners, insurance companies, and reluctant third parties on your behalf. We understand that when you are injured in a slip and fall accident, you may be facing time off of work, lost wages, and on top of pain and suffering, the inability to go about your day-to-day activities.

 Under Tennessee law, victims of slip and fall accidents due to another’s negligence have the right to settle all matters out of court if they so choose. A seasoned negotiator and trial lawyer, attorney David Scott has handled personal injury and slip and fall accident matters on behalf of clients in Murfreesboro and throughout Tennessee since 1996. Count on us to fight for maximum compensation for your injuries.

Places where slip and fall accidents commonly occur 

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere and under a variety of circumstances.  Some of the most common slip and fall injuries include those to the hand, leg, neck, back, and spinal cord.  Our law firm handles all types of slip and fall accidents, including those that occur in the following locations:

- Store or business: Items displayed precariously or improperly can fall and block a walkway, causing a trip and fall.

- Stadium: Electrical cords or other equipment that protrude and present tripping hazards; broken bleachers and stadium seating that has not been duly repaired creates an unsafe environment.

- Hospital or medical facility: Equipment or fluids that have not been properly stored or cleaned up, providing trip and fall or slip and fall hazards, posing great risk for elderly or frail patients or visitors.

- Sidewalk: Unmaintained walkways can easily result in trip and fall hazards with cracks and gaps and other signs of poor maintenance.

- Workplace: Equipment negligently left in places where it could be tripped over, rubber mats not properly laid on the ground, or lack of proper non-slip surfaces are only a few of the potential slip and fall and trip and fall dangers.

- Parking lot: Broken chains negligently left unrepaired or laying on the ground, metal or concrete posts, poles, or signage left in disrepair create tripping hazards that can lead to serious injury.

- Supermarket: Liquids not been properly cleaned or cleared from walkways pose serious risk for injury, including broken bones.

Tennessee property owners  have a responsibility and duty to your safety

Most cases of negligence are avoidable.  But unfortunately, accidents do happen. If you are the victim of another’s negligence, you have a right to be compensated. In Tennessee, there is a body of tort law that deals specifically with premises liability.  This includes dangerous pre-existing conditions that the owner of the premises knew or should have known about.  To obtain compensation in a slip and fall accident, you need to show that such a condition existed at the time of your accident. 

Tennessee law follows the regular negligence pattern which includes:

- Duty: Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises and keep it free from unreasonable and hidden risks that they know or should know of. They also have a duty to warn of hidden or other dangers that may be on the premises.

- Breach: Property owners breach their duty when they fail to maintain the premises, warn of dangers, clean up after a spill, or are otherwise neglectful in the display, organization, or other setup of the premises.

- Causation: This is the direct link between your injury and the neglectful action of the property owner that caused your injury. To have a successful claim, you will need an experienced slip and fall attorney to articulate this link.

- Damages: Damages are the amount of compensation you are owed, or that you must prove you are owed to have a successful claim, whatever that amount may be. We help you determine what you are owed for your injury and advocate for your monetary compensation.

Even if you believe that you were partially at fault, because of this standard negligence process, you may seek monetary compensation if the property owner breached their duty of care to you
