Slips and Falls While Intoxicated

Oftentimes slip and falls are caused by inebriation.  Does that mean the injury victim does not have a case?  No.

Generally, if the injury victim is deemed less negligent than the company or person responsible for the accident, then she or she can pursue a claim.  So who determines who is at fault, and whether the injury victim or property owner is more to blame for the accident?  A jury does.

Intoxication therefore is not a bar to recovery.  But, intoxication will bar any recovery when the injury victim is greater than 50% responsible for the accident.
