We Represent Slip-and-Fall Accident Victims
You need a lawyer who can hold negligent property owners accountable
Anyone who owns or manages property has a responsibility to keep the premises safe. When people get hurt due to hazardous conditions, the owner can be held accountable under the law. If you have been hurt in an accident, a dedicated personal injury lawyer can get you the help you need to be whole again.
Personal injury cases involving these types of accidents are known in the legal world as "premises liability" because they're centered on the owner's responsibility for what happens on the premises. The term "slip-and-fall" is commonly used for these cases, but it's somewhat misleading. That's because not every premises liability accident involves a fall. Any injury involving a safety issue on the premises can fall under this area of law, including assaults that happen due to lack of security.
While falls may seem like a relatively minor type of accident, they can be very serious, especially if the victim is elderly. Falls are one of the leading causes of accidental death nationwide, and even non-fatal falls can have life-altering consequences. If you sustained a traumatic brain injury in a slip-and-fall accident, you may be unable to work and require long-term care, among other costs.
Any such injury is the responsibility of the owner or caretaker of the property, but in order to recover financial compensation, you have to prove it. Premises liability law only allows the victim to recover if the owner knew - or should have known - about the dangerous condition and did not take steps to remedy it. To make your case, you need to contact an experienced attorney.
