Idaho business owners may find themselves faced with a liability lawsuit if they are aware of a walkway hazard at the workplace, but don’t get it fixed in a timely manner. It’s a business owner’s responsibility to keep their employees and customers safe, yet far too many don’t take the time to ensure the flooring and walkways aren’t contributing to the problems. If a business owner is due in court for a liability lawsuit, it’s a good idea to enlist the aid of an Idaho slip and fall expert witness.
Business owners know that the likelihood of a slip and fall accident at work is high, because these types of accidents account for a large number of workplace injuries. Hospital emergency rooms are filled with people who got injured in a slip and fall. For many, it’s just the beginning of a long battle through pain, rehab, and medical bills. It’s no wonder that when the victim believes that the flooring conditions led to their accident, they start a liability lawsuit. They must prove that the business owner was negligent in maintaining the walkway properly and that the accident could have been prevented.
In court, the business owner and the victim work hard to show that their version of events is accurate, so the judge and jury can make a decision on who is responsible. Lost wages, legal fees, medical bills and a lot more are often paid for by business owners who have been found at fault for negligence. On the other hand, if the accident was not caused by owner negligence, the judge and jury will make that decision and the business owner won’t be responsible for those costs.
So how do the judge and jury make their decision? A lot of their information comes from an Idaho slip and fall expert witness. The expert witness is a valuable addition to the case for either side. The Idaho slip and fall expert witness supplies facts about the walkway and the flooring conditions to the court and reveals information from inspections and tests that only an expert can determine.
