Slip/Trip and Fall Claims
The most common of the premises liability claims, slip and fall accidents can happen at any time and are due to the negligence of the property owner. We see many cases of personal injury claims where the victim has slipped or tripped due to:
- Wet floors
- Unsound stairs
- Uneven walkways
- Insufficient lighting
- And more
If you or a loved one has been injured because of these situations combined with the negligence of the property manager or owner, then we will do everything we can to get you fair compensation and the justice you need. While proving these cases is difficult, we will take the proper measures to ensure that the incident is thoroughly investigated, bringing in evidence and experts if needed so that we can do everything possible to provide you with a solid case.
However, slip and fall cases depend entirely on whether the owner or property manager acted in a way to prevent others from being injured, and whether you were careless so that you worsened the situation that caused the accident.
If you are the victim of a slip and fall accident and you believe that you have a case, then you should always:
- Avoid making statements about fault
- Write down names of owners, managers, and witnesses
- Take quality photos of both the scene and your injuries
- Save your clothing (including shoes)
- Receive medical care
- Avoid giving statements to insurance
