Lawyers who hold negligent parties accountable
There are many different hazards that can lead to a slip and fall accident. Someone can slip on spilled liquid, a recently mopped floor, damaged carpet, loose floorboards, cracked pavement, or bags or wrappers. Other factors that can lead to an accident include poor lighting and broken or missing handrails on staircases.
Slip and fall accidents can happen at restaurants, bars, supermarkets, offices, hotels, amusement parks, parking lots and private homes. Property and business owners have a responsibility to make sure their premises are kept free of slipping and tripping hazards. They must fix any known problems promptly or warn visitors about hazards.
When someone is injured in a slip and fall accident, property and business owners may deny doing anything wrong and often don’t accept responsibility. They may take the position that it was your fault you slipped.
Don’t rely on insurance companies for help. Their goal is to protect their bottom line. They want to pay you as little as possible to keep their profits as high as possible. So, they may question how serious your injuries are or argue that they were pre-existing. They may try to deny any liability at all.
