Slips and falls (or trips and falls) occur when property owners fail to make their buildings and/or properties safe for their tenants or visitors resulting in an accident.
While injuries from slip and fall accidents can range from bumps and bruises to life-threatening complications from a fall, these cases are typically difficult to prove – making it even more important that you have experienced legal counsel on your side.
You may experience a Slip and Fall accident due to a number of reasons – including wet floors that have not been properly cleaned or marked, street and sidewalk defects, exposed electrical wiring, obstructed walkways or falling objects. Whatever the cause, if you have sustained injuries due to the negligence of a property owner or another party, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries – from both the property owner and, more often, insurance companies representing these properties. Therefore, it is critical to seek the help of a personal injury attorney who is experienced in slip and fall accidents – and who has proven results in helping clients both navigate the system and receive financial compensation for the injuries they have sustained.
