Our personal injury lawyers hold negligent parties accountable
The owners of properties and businesses – even the owners of private homes – have a responsibility to keep their premises safe for visitors. Failing to meet this responsibility is known as negligence. A slip and fall accident can happen at stores, private homes, parking lots, restaurants, bars, amusement parks, hotels, motels and many other locations.
Someone can slip and fall and suffer an injury because of:
- Spilled liquid
- Slippery floors that have just been mopped
- Loose floorboards
- Torn carpets
- Slippery rugs
- Poor lighting
- Missing handrails on stairs
Injuries can include broken bones, muscle tears, lacerations, bruising and injuries to the head, neck or back. An injury victim may require x-rays, surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy and multiple follow-up appointments with doctors. Recovery can take months or longer. Some people are left with a permanent disability.
If the owner failed to take steps to keep their premises safe, you deserve compensation. They may deny responsibility, however, and may not admit to doing anything wrong. They may even blame you for causing the accident.
Don’t expect the insurance companies to help. They will want to pay you as little as possible – or even nothing at all. They may question the seriousness or cause of your injuries. They may argue your injuries were pre-existing. Or they may make a lowball settlement offer that doesn’t come close to covering the damages you have suffered.
