There are certain liability factors in a fall case. If you were injured in a fall, the answers to the following questions will be important in determining if you will be able to recover compensation from a third party for your injuries and if the value of your case will be reduced by any fault on your part. What type of surface did you fall on? Was there a defect in the surface? Was the defect obvious? What was the lighting level at the time of the fall? Was lighting a factor? Were any warnings posted about the defect? Did conditions on the property causing the fall violate a statute, ordinance, or other regulation? Had any similar incidents occurred on the property previously? Were there any witnesses to the incident? Why were you on the premises? There are many more questions that will be considered in your fall case.
