Understanding Your Premises Liability Case
In most cases, slip and fall accidents fall under an area of law known as “premises liability.” In a premises liability case, securing financial compensation requires proof of negligence on the part of the property owner or tenant (such as a retail business owner). Common examples of negligence that can lead to dangerous slip and fall accidents include:
- Failing to adequately maintain the premises (such as failing to fix a cracked sidewalk or loose stair tread)
- Failing to promptly clean spills and other slip hazards
- Failing to place warning signs in proximity to recently cleaned floors
- Failing to repair (or sufficiently prevent access to) malfunctioning elevators and escalators
- Failing to adequately treat outdoor walking surfaces during winter or to adequately remove (or warn of) snow or ice
- Failing to install, repair or replace floor mats or anti-skid protection on stairs
Regardless of what happened, if owner of the property or business where you fell failed to exercise due care to prevent unnecessary injuries, you can seek full compensation for all of your injury-related losses, including:
- Outstanding medical bills (and any bills you have already paid)
- Future medical expenses
- Lost wages and lost future earning capacity
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Loss of companionship, consortium and enjoyment of life
- Other financial and non-financial losses
In order to recover these losses, you will need proof of negligence as well as proof of the severity and long-term effects of your injuries. Our attorneys leverage decades of experience – both on the plaintiff and defense side of legal matters – to collect the evidence needed to pursue maximum value for your claim. Our attorneys are seasoned in the courtroom. If the property or business owner’s insurance company refuses to settle, our attorneys will take your case to trials and fight aggressively to secure compensation.
