Slip and Fall Injuries in Utah
Each year, more than a million Americans are seriously injured—and tens of thousands of people die—in slip and fall accidents. Many of those accidents wouldn't have even occurred had the property owner or tenant promptly addressed hazards that lead to slip and fall accidents. If you've been injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else's property, you may be entitled to compensation under Utah negligence laws. Talk to a slip and fall attorney today to learn more about your legal rights.
Utah Personal Injury Law Basics
If you've been injured in a slip and fall accident, you may be able to recover money to pay for:
- Injury-related medical expenses, including doctor's bills, medicine and medical supplies
- Transportation to and from your medical appointments
- Lost wages if you're unable to work as a result of your accident
- Pain and suffering
- Repair or replacement of any property (such as clothing) that was damaged or destroyed in your accident
For your Utah personal injury lawsuit to be successful, you must prove that the property owner or tenant was negligent under Utah laws, and that you were injured as a result of their negligence.
Utah uses something known as comparative negligence, which acknowledges you may share some of the blame for your accident. As long as your share of responsibility is less than 50 percent, you can recover money through a personal injury lawsuit.
