Injured In A Slip-And-Fall?
If you slipped and fell at a grocery store, retail store, restaurant, bar, hotel, gas station or any other business, you may be able to file a claim to get compensation for your injury. Even if you were injured in a slip-and-fall accident at an apartment building or rental property, you may have a claim. Property owners have a duty to keep premises safe, and when they fail to do so, they should be held accountable for harm suffered due to their negligence.

Overcoming Challenges In Premises Liability Claims
Slip-and-fall injury claims are surprisingly complex. Simply proving that an injury occurred on the property is not sufficient to get compensation. It must be proven that the property owner was negligent. In most cases, that means showing that the owner either caused the hazard that led to the slip-and-fall accident or was aware of or should have been aware of the hazard and that there was opportunity to remedy it prior to the accident.
One example is when a landlord allows water to run onto areas where tenants have to walk to get in or out of the building. When this water freezes, the sidewalks and steps become treacherous. This may be an example of property owner negligence. A grocery store manager gets a report of a spill or leak in the freezer aisle, but fails to send someone to clean it up. A customer slips and suffers broken wrists, knee damage or some other injury. This may be another example of a property owner failing to keep visitors to the property safe.
Our lawyers understand how to build cases to prove property owner negligence. We recommend that victims photograph the hazard immediately after the accident, if at all possible. We can also try to obtain security camera footage from stores and witness reports to prove that the property owner was negligent. We will get the evidence necessary to hold the property owner accountable and pursue fair compensation for you.
