Loved One Arrested? What You Should Know About Posting Bail

One night I was sitting at home relaxing when my husband called me from jail. He told me he had been arrested and asked me to post bail. I had no idea how bail worked. I didn't know if I should do it, what it would cost or how to go about doing it. I created this website because I know that others may find themselves in the position that I once found myself in. I hope my information helps you make a decision on whether or not to post bail, and teaches you what to expect should you do so.

What It Takes To Win Your Slip-And-Fall Injury Lawsuit

Were you involved in a serious accident where you slipped and fell due to someone else's fault? If so, you may have a viable lawsuit to receive compensation for your medical bills. However, you will need to have the law on your side when it comes to winning your case in court. Here is what you need to know about winning a fall-related personal injury lawsuit.

Know The Cause Of The Fall

It is important that you have a clear understanding of what caused your slip-and-fall accident to happen. Simply having an accident in a store is not enough to justify a slip-and-fall claim, especially if you just tripped over your own feet and took a bad tumble to the ground. 

For example, if the floor surface was wet, you must be able to identify why the floor surface was wet. Was it because an employee recently mopped the floor or because something spilled onto the floor and you slipped and fell because of it? Having a clearly defined reason for the slip and fall is going to help prove your case in court.

Know That The Cause Was Due To Negligence

Not only do you need to have a clear reason for the slip and fall, but you must prove that it was caused by the negligence of the person that was responsible. A great example is the employee that mopped up a floor and left the surface slick enough to cause a slip and fall. Putting up a wet floor sign should be enough to let others know that the floor is wet and to be careful since you will walk through the area at your own risk. Not putting up the slip-and-fall sign can cause someone to suffer a slip and fall without knowing the floor was slick, and the negligence falls on a person not putting out a sign. 

Know That The Negligence Party Had Time To Respond 

Businesses cannot possibly be held accountable for every small thing that can happen within their building. That's why it is also important that they had enough time to react to a circumstance that could cause a slip and fall. 

If a customer in a grocery store dropped a jar on the floor and a liquid spilled out on the floor, the business would not be liable if you immediately stepped in the mess and slipped and fell. They need to have a reasonable amount of time to react to the mess and clean it up. If the spill had been on the floor for an hour prior to your accident and the business was notified of the spill, then it is safe to say that the business didn't react quickly enough and was negligent.
