Slip and Fall

Sidewalk cracks can be hazardous

If you have slipped, tripped or fallen, you may have a claim against the owner of the property. Such a claim is known as a premises liability case. Causes of slip and fall accidents include:

Indoor:

  • Spills and wet floors
  • Unlevel floors
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Floors in poor repair

Outdoor:

  • Ice and snow accumulation
  • Sidewalks in poor repair
  • Poor lighting

Stairs:

  • Uneven stairs
  • Insufficient illumination
  • Damaged or missing railings
  • Unmarked small steps or uneven steps

Your case may have involved a dangerous condition and resulted in serious injury. As a result of your slip and fall or tripping accident, you may have sustained medical expenses, lost income, a reduction in your earning capacity, rehabilitation expenses as well as pain and suffering.

Building codes or other rules and regulations may apply to your case. Sometimes the owner or occupant of the premises upon which the accident occurred will correct the defect before an investigation can take place. Maybe the place where you were hurt had a video camera that recorded the accident. Maybe there are witnesses who need to be located and questioned before memories fade. We will undertake a prompt and thorough investigation in order to discover the facts which will allow you to recover what you are due.
