Understanding Your Slip-And-Fall Injury
There are fine lines between hazardous conditions that should be open and obvious to everyone, those that the average person might not notice but that should be taken care of by the property owner, and those that understandably go unnoticed by everyone. You must be able to prove that the property owner had significant notice and failed to take care of the hazardous condition.
Property owners can be held responsible for their negligence, including:
- Municipalities: Poorly maintained sideways, roads and steps maintained by the city can easily lead to slip-and-fall accidents.
- Commercial establishments: From spills in grocery stores and restaurants, to poorly maintained parking lots or department stores, commercial establishments can and should be held responsible.
- Residential property owners: You can also file slip-and-fall claims against residential property owners responsible for hazardous conditions.
These cases require a lot of investigation. We have the experience and the resources to properly handle these cases and gather evidence swiftly, before conditions change. We know what evidence to look for in order to strengthen your case.
