No one can prevent every single accident. But businesses are required to keep their properties in a “reasonably safe” condition. If they fail to do this, for example by failing to clean up spills in a timely manner, the business leaves their customers at risk for serious injury. This is most commonly known as a “slip and fall” case, but it can also involve tripping hazards, for example a staircase that is not built to code. These cases often go unfiled, because the injured person thinks the incident was their own fault. We can help sort this out, and if the business failed to live up to their duty, we can explain your options.

“Slip and fall” cases should be taken seriously, and should be addressed very quickly, as the evidence is often literally mopped up within minutes, and surveillance video too often gets deleted. Depending on how one falls, a slip and fall could result in permanent neck and back injuries, broken bones, torn ligaments, or worse.

If you or a loved one have been injured following a slip and fall, or a tripping hazard, or anything else while a customer in a business location, you may be able to get reimbursed for the medical bills you have incurred to treat those injuries. Please call or email us for a free consultation and we can figure out together the action you need to take to preserve your rights.
