The Law Offices of Carolina K. Tumminelli PLLC receive a lot of phone calls from people who are injured after they have fallen on another person’s property. Whether it was at someone’s home, or at a commercial establishment such as a store or restaurant, the first thing people want to do is sue the owner for their injuries. Unfortunately, it’s not that simple.
Before a person can collect money for their injuries, or for monetary damages that result from those injuries, they must first prove that the person or business they want to sue was negligent. This means that the person or business did something wrong which caused injuries. In order to do this, you have to prove that the condition on the property which caused your injuries had been there for a long enough time that the property owner knew, or should have known, of it’s existence, and that the owner had enough time to correct the problem before you were injured. If you cannot prove negligence, then you cannot collect money for your injuries or any other monetary loss, no matter how badly you were hurt.
