Slip and Fall Accidents
When building owners fail to keep you safe, we hold them accountable
Falling may seem like an everyday occurrence, but a slip-and-fall accident can be serious business. Depending on your fall, you could be dealing with anything from a sprained ankle to a traumatic brain injury. Falls can cause injuries such as broken bones that take weeks or months to heal, as well as long-term disabilities like paralysis and chronic pain. A simple accident could leave you dealing with the consequences for a long time, or even for the rest of your life.
Property owners have a responsibility to maintain their property to make sure slips and trips do not happen. Failure to clean up spills, repair uneven surfaces and clear trip hazards can lead to serious injuries. If your accident was the result of negligence on the part of the property owner, you may be entitled to compensation through a premises liability claim. However, you'll need an aggressive, determined attorney to argue your case and make sure justice is served.
