Why You Need a Lawyer After a Slip and Fall Accident
Property owners are responsible for providing safe conditions for their visitors and patrons. However, getting hurt somewhere does not automatically entitle an injured party to compensation. For a premises liability claim to have merit, you must show that there was a safety hazard and that the owner or manager was aware (or should have been aware) of it.
Many slip-and-fall victims do not understand their rights and fail to pursue a personal injury claim. Others try to handle their own claims, assuming the negligent party will admit fault and compensate them for their injuries. Instead, the property owner alters the accident site and denies liability.
Our experienced personal injury lawyers understand the importance of moving quickly to document the hazard and obtain statements from witnesses before the owner can clean up the mess or repair the dangerous situation.
