Forms Of Negligence That Frequently Causes Slip & Fall Accidents
Our attorneys have assisted clients who were injured in a slip and fall accident that was caused by:
- Loose Flooring
- Spilled Liquids
- Broken Steps
- Broken Sidewalks
- Snow & Ice
Under premises liability laws, property owners must take reasonable steps to check their property at regular intervals for hazards that might cause a slip and fall accident. If they fail to discover a hazard in a reasonable amount of time or fail to fix a hazard that has been discovered, they can be held liable for any injuries that occur as a result.
Who Is Responsible If I Fell On A Rental Property?
This is an excellent question and the answer depends on the rental agreement between the property owner and tenant. For example, if your injuries were caused by snow and ice that wasn’t removed in a timely manner and the property owner is responsible for the snow removal, then your legal claim would be filed against the property owner and not the tenant.
Our legal team will do the research needed to determine exactly who was at fault for your slip and fall accident.
Can I File A Lawsuit If I Fell On Government Property?
Yes, if you slipped and fell on government property you have the right to pursue legal action. However, keep in mind that it’s important to work with a law firm that has the experience and resources needed to take on a government agency. In addition to this, slip and fall accident lawsuits involving a government agency are more complicated because there are laws that may limit when and how the claims can be made.
Let our Schuster Law lawyers review your case and help you take action.
The Insurance Company Has Approached Me With A Settlement – Should I Accept?
If you’ve been contacted by the property owners insurance company and offered a settlement, it’s a good idea to allow our attorneys to review the offer. Insurance companies will often make offers that are far below what a slip and fall victim deserves and in return, require a signature on paperwork that will prevent the victim from taking further legal action.
