Premises Liability/Slip and Fall
People who slip and fall on another person’s property due to unsafe conditions may be eligible for compensation. Property owners are responsible for keeping their premises safe and for warning visitors of any potential hazards. For example, if a supermarket owner mops the floor and doesn’t mark the area to warn consumers, he or she may be legally liable for a slip and fall injury occurring in that location. Similarly, a homeowner who fails to warn guests of a broken step may be liable for his guests’ injuries. You should obtain photographs of the area where you fell as soon as practical–in order to depict the condition as it existed at the time of your injury–and present them to our office at the initial consultation. By the time you contact our office, it may be too late to get photographs of the area as it existed at the time of the injury. Evidence of prior injuries is crucial and you should provide any such information to our office as soon as you become aware of such.
