A Slip and Fall Injury Requires Taking Fast Legal Action
Not all slip-and-fall victims know that they have the right to seek compensation for their injuries. Unfortunately, without being fully aware of their options, they risk losing the opportunity to seek compensation for lost wages, medical bills and emotional distress. You should not have to pay for the negligence of another person or government entity. It is time to demand accountability.

Who Is Responsible For A Slip-And-Fall?
There is no clear-cut answer for who the at-fault party is in your case. There are a variety of people who may be responsible, and it is important to fully understand who those parties are prior to moving forward. Parties who may be responsible for your slip-and-fall injuries include, but are not limited to:
- Property owners
- Local or state government
We will thoroughly assess the facts of your case to determine who is at fault for your injuries and promptly file suit.
What Is Premises Liability?
Slip-and-fall cases fall under the umbrella of premises liability claims. You may have a premises liability case if you were injured on someone’s property as the result of a hazardous or defective condition. In order to pursue a premises liability claim after a slip and fall, you must prove that:
- There was a defective or hazardous condition
- You were injured by the defect or hazard
- The property owner (or another party) knew or should have known of the condition
- The party failed to warn or remove/repair the hazard or defect
