Slip and fall cases have unique issues that the average personal injury case does not have. In Washington, the vast majority of courts will find that the injured person is at least partially responsible for slip and fall cases. The general belief is that if the injured person would have been more careful then the injury might not have happened. While we do not share this belief it is the reality you must consider when bringing such a claim.
The most common slip and fall cases include: falling into uncovered holes, often from construction sites; unsafe sidewalks and walkways; improper maintenance of decks, docks, and other wooden pathways.
