Slip/Trip and Fall

Slip/Trip and Fall

All property owners, residential and commercial, have a duty to ensure safe a environments for all visitors.  If you have been harmed by a hazardous condition on another’s property including a sidewalk, personal residence, restaurant, mall, hotel, office building school,  park, theater, or museum, you may be eligible to file a premises liability claim and receive compensation for your injury.  These injuries most 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, you should contact our knowledgeable personal injury attorneys who have the resources and experience necessary to help you collect compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and even emotional trauma. 

For your claim to be successful, it must be shown that the property owner knew or should have known about the hazardous situation, failed to correct it in a timely manner, and that the action or inaction of the property owner caused the condition which led to your fall.

Once liability has been established, we will work with you in proving a direct causal relationship between the hazard on the property and the injury that you suffered.  Our compassionate injury attorneys will represent you aggressively so you can take care of what is most important — recovering from your injury and regaining your health.
