Slipping, tripping or falling may seem like a simple accident, but it could be the inevitable consequence of a neglectful business, manager or property manager. Successful personal injury lawsuits involving slip and fall cases must demonstrate that the management knew about a hazardous condition, or should have known, and failed to take action to correct the problem. These cases can be tough to prove. It takes a dedicated team of investigators, researchers and attorneys to put the evidence together and present a solid case. We have the team and the experience to do so.
Areas where slips and falls can be common include:
Slip and fall cases can be brought following any injury, even those in private residences. Our attorneys and investigators can apply detailed knowledge of federal, state and local building codes to help with your case.
In some cases, fault can be found when owners fail to properly clean up or prevent leaks, spills and other slippery substances from coating the floor. In other cases, bad design elements, like poorly planned staircases, low lighting or weak railings, can be to blame, making a fall inevitable for someone. Filing a case will require showing that a reasonable property owner or manager should have taken action to correct the problem. This may require collecting evidence, conducting eyewitnesses interviews, consulting expert witnesses and comprehensive evaluation of the situation.
