Were You Recently Injured in a Slip and Fall?
If you have fallen on someone else's property, you need to be aware of your legal rights. The liability of the property owner depends on the jurisdiction where the accident occurred, as the rules vary. Usually a property owner is responsible for injuries that occur on the property when he or she knew of the unsafe condition or caused it and did nothing to correct the problem. A property owner can also be held liable if he or she should have known about the danger.
Even if it is discovered that the property owner does not have insurance, it doesn't mean the case will be dismissed. Our slip and fall lawyers have been able to get big settlements for our clients by going after the uninsured owner's assets to help recover compensation. We have successfully represented slip and fall and trip and fall cases against private landowners, commercial landowners and municipalities.
Compensation for a slip and fall lawsuit can include medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and other costs associated with the injuries.
