Find Out if You Have Grounds for a Case by Talking to Slip and Fall Lawyers

If you slip, trip, or fall down, and are injured, you may be entitled to file for compensatory monetary damages against the property owner by filing a claim through our lawyers, who handle slip and fall cases. It does not matter whether your accident occurred at a place of business, a government property, or a residence. The owner of the property is required by law to ensure the proper upkeep and maintenance to prevent accidents. Maintaining the property includes making sure there are not broken or uneven sidewalks, loose carpeting, and slippery floors. In the event the owner is aware of a problem and fails to take the necessary actions to correct the problem, they are negligent.

An important aspect to every slip and fall lawsuit is determining whether the property owner was negligent. For example, if there is a broken sidewalk outside the entrance of the business, and the owner is aware of the problem, but fails to take steps to correct the situation, they are negligent. On the other hand, if they block the area off, put up warning signs and take corrective actions, then they may not be held fully accountable in the event of an accident.
