We approach every case with professionalism and competence to ensure you get the compensation you are entitled to receive by law. See how our experience and proven knowledge can help maximize your recovery in your premises liability case. Whether you have been injured in a grocery store, shopping mall, someone else’s home, public park, or a private or public property, we can help.

Common causes of slip and fall accidents include the following:

  • Improper lighting
  • Wet floors
  • Broken sidewalks
  • Cluttered walkways
  • Hazardous walking surfaces
  • Uneven flooring
  • Broken handrails

If you choose to have our firm represent you, we will begin by investigating the accident to identify evidence that proves the homeowner or business owner’s negligence led to your accident. We have the sophisticated knowledge and experience required to assist you in building a strong and comprehensive claim. A fair settlement shouldn’t just cover your medical bills, but it should include compensation for your suffering and emotional pain.

Proving Liability in Slip & Fall Claims

A strong slip and fall claim should include evidence that shows:

  • The owner or property manager owed you a duty of care - and that you were on the property legally either as a guest, patron, or invited onto the premises.
  • The owner or property manager should have known about the dangerous condition in a timely manner (as a reasonable person would)
  • Ringing in ears
  • Blurred vision
  • The owner or property manager failed to fix the dangers or warn of the hazards
  • The dangerous condition caused you injuries

You will need to include photographs, witness testimonies, and an accident report to help you build your claim. If video surveillance footage exists, it would be helpful to obtain a copy as well. In some cases, such as those involving violations of building codes and standards, we may need to bring in experts to help us assess a property’s compliance and condition. Our team can thoroughly evaluate the property’s condition, maintenance history, and other related factors that can help us prove liability in your claim.
