All property owners, residential and commercial, have a duty to ensure safe environments for persons on their property. If you have been injured due to a defective condition on another’s sidewalk, personal residence, restaurant, mall, hotel, office building, school, park, theater, museum or other property, you may be entitled to receive monetary compensation for your injuries.
“Slip/Trip and Fall” injuries are often severe and painful. They commonly occur because of uneven or slippery surfaces but can also be the result of:
- Defective stairs
- Wet floors
- Exposed electrical wiring
- Raised flooring
- Falling debris
- Obstructed pathways
- Poorly lit areas
Although premises liability laws seek to protect parties who are injured as the result of a property owner’s negligence, difficulties may arise if the owner has corrected the hazardous condition. To ensure that the proper grounds for your claim are met, you should contact our knowledgeable personal injury attorneys who have the resources and experience necessary to help you receive the monetary award you deserve. This award should include lost wages and compensation for pain and suffering, emotional trauma, as well as future pain and suffering.
For your claim to be successful, it must be shown that the property owner knew or should have known about the hazardous situation and failed to correct it in a timely manner, or actually caused it.
Our compassionate personal injury attorneys consider these factors and will represent you aggressively so you can focus on what is most important—recovering from your injuries and regaining your health.
