If you or your loved one suffered an injury due to a property owner’s lack of proper maintenance of their property, you may want to discuss your options for financial compensation with a capable liability attorney. When an individual gets hurt on another’s property, many people do not realize that the property owner can be held responsible if the accident was preventable.
Slip and Fall Accidents
If you have sustained injuries on another party’s property, such as a house, restaurant, store or hotel, you may be eligible to fight back for justice. Our lawyers have experience proving premises injury cases and obtaining compensation for injured people.
Slip and fall cases can be difficult to win in court, because there is no exact method for proving that a property owner (or employee) owes you compensation for a personal injury that occurred on his/her property. In the right circumstances, a slip and fall accident should be reported when the incident takes place. How it happened, what led to the accident, a record of any witnesses present, accounts of the incident by any witnesses, environmental factors, and the causal conditions along with other relevant information should be noted.
Slip and falls can cause much more than hurt feelings and embarrassment. Slip and fall incidents cause 15% of all accidental deaths and are second only to motor vehicle accidents as a cause of accidental deaths. They can result in broken bones, a severe strain, a back injury, and even a brain injury. Even smaller injuries can develop into long-term pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia and chronic pain syndrome. Along with causing severe pain, these injuries can prevent you from returning to work and can interfere with your daily activities.
