Slip/Trip and Fall

All property owners, residential and commercial, have the duty to ensure safe environments for all visitors. If you have been harmed by a hazardous condition on another’s sidewalk, personal residence, restaurant, mall, hotel, office building school, park, theater, museum or other property, you may be eligible to file a premises liability claim and receive compensation for your injury. 

 “Slip and Fall” injuries are a major cause of premises liability and commonly occur from uneven or slippery surfaces but can also be the result of:

  • crumbling stairs
  • wet floors
  • exposed electrical wiring
  • raised flooring
  • falling debris
  • obstructed pathways
  • poorly lit walkways

Although premises liability law seeks to protect parties who are injured as the result of the property owner’s negligence, it is often difficult to prove liability, especially if the owner has corrected the hazardous condition. To ensure that the proper grounds for your claim are met, we have the resources and experience necessary to help you collect compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and even emotional trauma.

We can assess your injury and assist you in determining whether the property owner failed to maintain his or her property or properly warn of hazardous conditions.   We will work with you in proving a direct causal relationship between the hazard on the property and the injury that you suffered.  A myriad of other factors, including factors such as visitor status, must also be considered when filing a premises liability claim.

We consider all of these factors and will represent you aggressively so you can take care of what is most important—recovering from your injury and regaining your health.
