Slip and fall accidents are by far the most common premises liability cases. The law requires property owners to provide safe, secure, and properly maintained premises. Many slip and fall injuries are the result of hazardous conditions or negligence in places like parking lots, grocery stores, and gas stations. A free consultation with one of our personal injury attorneys can help you determine if your slip and fall case is due to unsafe conditions or property owner negligence.
Common causes for slip and fall cases include:
- slippery conditions, including wet floors or improper ice and snow removal
- poorly maintained property
- poor lighting
- improperly placed rugs, furniture, or fixtures
- faulty or missing handrails
- missing warning signs
These dangerous conditions can result in serious injuries, such as:
- broken bones
- spinal cord injuries
- head injuries such as concussions or traumatic brain injuries
- wrongful death
Victims of slip and fall accidents and their loved ones often have multiple concerns, such as:
- loss of income
- medical bills, including emergency room visits and physical therapy
- reduced mobility
- pain and suffering
Our Slip and Fall Lawyers Have the Experience You Need
If you are a victim of a slip and fall accident, recovery is often your primary concern – as it should be – but your rights as an accident victim may be left unprotected, or worse, ignored altogether. Our slip and fall attorneys understand the important differences between a premises liability case and other personal injury cases, like car accidents. We want to provide you with the care and legal advice you need in your slip and fall case.
One of the biggest differences is the amount of fraud in slip and fall injury claims. The National Insurance Crime Bureau closely scrutinizes slip and falls at businesses for fraud. This started after a rise in fraudulent claims in slip and fall cases. Unfortunately, this means that the insurance company may treat you like a criminal who is out to defraud them, instead of a slip and fall victim who needs to be compensated.
A Law Firm with Inside Knowledge of the Insurance Industry
Many of our highly experienced slip and fall attorneys started their careers working for insurance companies on behalf of property owners. They understand how premises liability cases are handled and how personal injury claims are processed. They know how insurance companies give low initial settlement offers that may not even cover your medical expenses, and they know where to look for additional insurance coverage that can provide maximum compensation in your slip and fall accident case.
