We Hold Property Owners Accountable
Most slip-and-fall accidents occur on commercial property, such as grocery stores, gas stations and office buildings. However, accidents can also occur on private property, such as a person’s home. In these cases, an individual homeowner’s insurance policy will likely cover most of the damages incurred in a slip-and-fall accident. We provide representation for accident claims arising from all types of dangerous conditions, including:
- Slippery floors
- Slippery tiles
- Absence of handrails
- Damaged staircases
- Poorly lit corridors or stairwells
Property owners must keep their premises reasonably safe or warn visitors of any dangerous conditions they should know about. For example, if you are injured as the result of slipping on snow and ice, you may have a claim for damages.
What You Should Do After An Accident
If you have been hurt in a slip-and-fall accident, the most important thing you should do is to seek medical attention. If possible, you or a witness to the accident should take photos of the scene. This may be valuable in strengthening your claim. After you have received medical care, get advice from a personal injury attorney to ensure that your rights remain protected.
