Who May Be Liable For My Slip and Fall Accident?
Slip and fall accidents happen in offices, residential driveways, commercial parking lots and in many other locations. It is challenging to determine liability, and often negligence may be shared for a single accident.
Liability often depends on where the accident happened:
Commercial property ”“ There are multiple parties who have a duty to maintain commercial property and could potentially be liable for a slip and fall accident, including:
- The property owner or landlord who has a duty to oversee property maintenance and ensure the property is reasonably safe, even if he or she does not own or operate the business that is on the property.
- A business owner has an obligation to maintain a safe property. He or she must take reasonable steps, such as supervising or doing the repair of torn flooring, replacing lights in a dimly lit hallway or cleaning up broken glass.
- Individual employees may also be responsible if they see a hazard and do not take care of it or inform a supervisor or the business owner about it.
Residential property ”“ Slip and fall accidents are always complicated, even those involving a residential property where there may be multiple responsible parties, such as a landowner, tenant or other third party.
To establish liability, the injured party must be able to prove the owner knew about the dangerous condition, he or she could have fixed the problem, and the accident and resulting injury was caused by the negligent act of not correcting or repairing the hazard.
Dangerous conditions on a residential property could include, but are not limited to:
- Poorly-lit hallways
- Uneven pavement
- Torn carpeting
- Broken railing on a stairway
- Unguarded swimming pools
Government property ”“ Accidents that happen on property owned by a government entity are typically very different from other slip and fall cases, and the filing deadline, at 180 days, is much shorter. If you think you may have a case for an accident that occurred on local, state or federal property, it is important that you contact a licensed attorney immediately.
Gathering supportive evidence for any type of slip and fall case on your own can be difficult, but at
Phillips Law, our experienced slip and fall attorneys know exactly what to look for and how to best utilize any information we obtain to build a strong argument on your behalf.
What Is the Total Value of My Slip and Fall Case?

Our knowledgeable Prescott slip and fall lawyers are prepared to carefully examine all the details of your situation to help determine the maximum value of your potential claim, including:
- The severity of your injuries
- Bills for emergency services
- Present and future medical treatments
- Costs for hospital visits or in-patient stays

- Pain and suffering

How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?
Personal injury victims in Yavapai County have just two years from the date of the accident to file a claim for compensation. This deadline, or statute of limitations, applies throughout the state of Arizona.
Although this time limit for filing applies in most cases, there are some exceptions that would give you considerably less time ”“ for instance, you are given just 180 days if you file a claim against a government entity.

I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Sophia H is very helpful.
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
I would like to send special thanks to Phillips Law Group for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the Best Law Firm here in the Valley. During these troubling times with the epidemic, Phillips Law Group has masterfully created this family-like environment while still maintaining a professional and business-like approach for all their clients. Thru impeccable leadership that is unmatched by other law firms to the Multi-diverse employment opportunities that many employees advance within the firm; Phillips Law Group has not only distanced themselves from all other competition in the Personal Injury field but also has innovatively changed the narrative of being a great law institution. From providing Employee Appreciation Day to celebrating all major Holiday including great competitive contests; Phillips Law Group has the total participation of all employees to help contribute to the continued success of this firm. So in closing I would like to thank Senior Administration (Jeffery Phillips, Eva Chiaramonte, and Tim Tonkin) along with all of my colleagues and many friends for help making Phillips Law Group a unique and wonderful place to call my place of employment for 6+ years.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
