Slips, Trips and Falls
Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere. Premises liability deals with those instances when individuals are injured on someone else’s property. If you are injured on another’s property, injuries may give rise to liability, for example, if the owner or occupier of the property did not keep the sidewalk in good repair, negligently failed to clear ice or snow properly, or left or placed an object on a pathway where someone may trip and fall.
If you are suffering from injuries caused by a slip and fall accident on another’s property or place of business, make sure you hire a lawyer who understands the complexity of this area of the law. Premises liability can be quite confusing and specialized. Confronting the legal system alone can be detrimental to your case and ability to recover and may ultimately prolong pain and suffering. Simply making the mistake of giving a statement to an insurance company or failing to understand what the legally applicable statute of limitations is can prevent you from recovering anything.
